VA Qarmat Ali Registry Available to Veterans Exposed to Hexavalent Chromium

The Department of Veterans Affairs has released information pertaining to the registries for chromium exposure at Qarmat Ali water treatment facility. The registry is important for continued health monitoring for veterans who may have served at Qarmat Ali and have current health conditions or may develop conditions in the future.

Veterans who served at Qarmat Ali and the Gulf War should also participate in the Gulf War registry. Veterans who participate in the program will receive an initial exam, chest X-ray and pulmonary function test. The results will be tracked in the VA’s Gulf War Registry.

Important points about registry health exams:

  • Free to eligible Veterans and no co-payment
  • Not a disability compensation exam or required for other VA benefits
  • Enrollment in VA’s health care system not necessary
  • Based on Veterans’ recollection of service, not on their military records
  • Veterans can receive additional registry exams, if new problems develop

Veterans should contact their local program manager to make an appointment to enroll In the VA Qarmat Ali Medical Surveillance Program. Click here for a team locator.

We encourage all veterans who served at Qarmat Ali to join these registries. A burn pit registry is also being created. The registry was part of an improvement act signed on January 10, 2013, and gives the VA one year from signing to create the burn pit registry. We will continue to share updates as they develop.
