Information for Veterans

The Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine (ESATM) is an approved facility for use by Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E), which is a specific program within the VA that provides educational and/or vocational training programs for Service members and Veterans (SM/V) with service-connected disabilities.

  • Once ESATM receives a valid VA authorization, such as a VAF 28-1905 for VR&E beneficiaries, the qualifying student is permitted to attend or participate in the approved course(s) while awaiting payment from the VA for a period of 90 days from the date the facility submits a valid invoice for tuition/fees (T&F) to VA.

  • ESATM will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees; the denial of access to classes, libraries or other institutional facilities; or require any covered individual to borrow additional funds due to delayed T&F payments from the VA.
