MISSION UNITED: Comprehensive Support for Veterans

Posted March 18, 2024

If you are a veteran with an honorable discharge and a Florida ID, you can receive hearing, dental, vision and/or mental health care at no cost at Nova Southeastern University. Your spouse needs a Florida ID and the marriage certificate, while dependants will need their birth certificate.

Services include individual therapy, family therapy, eye exams, prescription glasses and sunglasses, contact lenses, hearing and balance evaluation, hearing aids, routine dental care and evaluation, cleanings, and much more. They are all available at the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus, located at 3200 S. University Drive, Sanford L. Ziff Health Care Center in Fort Lauderdale.

This is a historical expansion of the VA health care system, as they eliminated the phase-in approach that would have taken eight years to become available. Suppose you can show deployment to Vietnam, Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan, or any combat zone after 9/11 or exposure stateside during training to hazards. In that case, you can apply for enrollment and gain access for life.
