The form can also be printed off this website under the "Forms and Documents" tab or visit the VA website at: http://www.va.gov/healtheligibility.

Veterans do not have to be enrolled if they:

(2) want care for a disability the military determined was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, but which the VA has not yet rated, during the 12-month period following discharge
(3) want care for a service-connected disability only
