The Peace Corps offers a three-tiered program for returned Volunteers that covers routine medical care after service, evaluation of service-related conditions, and treatment of service-related illnesses and injuries.

This section of the website is adapted from the Post-Service Health Benefits Guide, a handbook for returned Volunteers. For the purposes of this handbook, the term "Volunteer" includes Peace Corps, United Nations and Crisis Corps Volunteers and Trainees.
