The Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) Pay mobile application (app) is an interactive tool to help Veterans, Veteran beneficiaries and/or medical providers look up a medical code to see if it is covered by CHAMPVA.
The app accepts Current Procedural Technology (CPT), International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (IDC-10), National Drug Code (NDC), and Durable Medical Equipment (HCPCS-DME) codes and returns the reimbursement status.
Anyone can access the CHAMPVA Pay App and check on reimbursement statuses, including a Veteran’s beneficiaries and/or medical providers.
From the home screen, tap Check Codes. You will go to the Check Codes screen where there are four different categories of medical codes. Type in the code you’re checking on in the corresponding blank field.

  • CPT Code – Current procedural terminology codes are used for billing outpatient and office procedures. The code must be 3-7 alphanumeric characters (e.g., 98941).
  • ICD-10 Code – International classification of diseases. Tenth revision codes are used to classify and code all diagnoses, symptoms and procedures. The code must be 1-8 alphanumeric characters (e.g., S72044G).
  • HCPCS/DME Code – Durable medical equipment codes are used to identify medical equipment used for treatment. The code must be 3-7 alphanumeric characters (e.g., A4265).
  • NDC Code – National drug codes are used for identification of human drugs. The code must be 10-13 Numerals & Dash only (e.g.,12345-6789-12).
A green checkmark will appear next to the code when the required syntax is entered. Tap Submit. You will go a Checked Code screen, which will show you the type of code, the code you entered and the participation status.
There are four options for the participation status:

  • Yes – This is covered by CHAMPVA.
  • Yes with conditions. To learn more, call the service center at 1-800-733-8387 – This is part of CHAMPVA, but there are restrictions. You are advised to contact the CHAMPVA service center for more details.
  • No – This is not covered by CHAMPVA.
  • Unknown Code. To learn more, call the service center at 1-800-733-8387.
