Agent Orange Registry

The Agent Orange Registry (AOR) Health Exam

The VA’s Agent Orange Registry (AOR) health exam can help Veterans to identify possible long-term health problems that may be related to Agent Orange exposure during their military service. Also, the registry data helps the VA understand and respond to these health problems more effectively.

How can I get an AOR exam?

Contact your local VA Environmental Health Coordinator about getting an Agent Orange Registry health exam.

What does the Agent Orange Registry health exam include?

This comprehensive health exam includes:

  • an exposure history,
  • your medical history,
  • a full physical exam,
  • and any tests if needed.

A VA health professional will discuss the results face-to-face with the Veteran and in a follow-up letter.

Is there a fee or co-payment for the AOR exam?

The exam is free to eligible Veterans and there is no co-payment.

Other important points to know about registry health exams:

  • It is not a disability compensation exam or required for other VA benefits
  • Enrollment in VA’s health care system not necessary
  • It is based on the Veterans’ recollection of service, not on their military records
  • The exam will not confirm exposure to Agent Orange
  • Veterans can receive additional registry exams, if new problems develop
  • Veterans’ family members are not eligible for an Agent Orange Registry health exam.
