Home Q & A Agent Orange What does the Agent Orange Registry examination involve? Does it cost anything?
  • Accepted Answer
    The Agent Orange Registry examination is free for Veterans who may have been exposed to Agent Orange. Health professionals will ask you about possible exposure to herbicides in Vietnam and take a medical history. They also will perform a physical examination, which includes a series of basic laboratory tests, such as a chest X-ray (if appropriate), urinalysis, and blood tests. If medically required, consultations with other health specialists are scheduled. Contact the Environmental Health Coordinator or Patient Care Advocate at the nearest VA medical center to schedule an examination.
