Presumptive Conditions for Camp Lejeune Veterans

Camp Lejeune is the Marine Corps Base Camp in Jacksonville, North Carolina. From 1957 through 1987, people living at Camp Lejeune were exposed to contaminated drinking water.  The contaminants involved were industrial solvents.

The VA is now providing free health care for the following conditions to Veterans who served at least 30 days of active duty at Camp Lejeune between January 1, 1957 and December 31, 1987.

Qualifying health conditions include:

·         Esophageal cancer

·         Breast cancer

·         Kidney cancer

·         Multiple myeloma

·         Renal toxicity

·         Female infertility

·         Scleroderma

·         Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

·         Lung cancer

·         Bladder cancer

·         Leukemia

·         Myelodysplastic syndromes

·         Hepatic steatosis

·         Miscarriage

·         Neurobehavioral effects

If you believe other health conditions you are suffering from are directly related to the contaminated water you were exposed to at Camp Lejeune, contact your primary health care provider to file a claim with the VA. You will need to have served at least 30 days of active duty at Camp Lejeune, during the time period of January 1, 1957 through December 31, 1987.  Family members of Veterans who also resided at Camp Lejeune during the qualifying period are also eligible for reimbursement of out-of-pocket medical expenses involving the covered health conditions.
