The VA has entered into an agreement with the Department of Treasury to handle all of the VA’s copayment debt management.
If a veteran does not pay, or contact the VA about their copayment bills within 90 days the debt will be forwarded to Treasury for follow-up.
Once a bill is assigned to the Treasury Department the VA will no longer be able to touch that bill or apply payment.
If Treasury is unable to close the debt by payment or other means the bill will be passed on to a contracted private collection agency.
There are various time frames and dollar amounts in the process. The Local VSO Briefing presentation and Frequently Asked Questions will provide more information

As a result of the military's past reliance on asbestos, veterans account for an estimated 30 percent of all mesothelioma patients. Our organization, the Mesothelioma Center, provides free information, resources and personal assistance to those who have been affected by mesothelioma and asbestos exposure.
