Veterans Health Care Reimbursement Act of 2002 - Amends title XVIII (Medicare) of the Social Security Act (SSA) to authorize the Secretaries of Health and Human Services (HHS) and of Veterans Affairs (VA), under a new Medicare Reimbursement Program for Veterans, to establish a program under which the HHS Secretary shall reimburse the VA Secretary from the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund and the Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund for Medicare health care services furnished to targeted Medicare-eligible veterans who volunteer for such program. Directs the VA Secretary to establish and operate coordinated care health plans to provide benefits to the enrolled veterans consistent with the program under SSA title XVIII part C (Medicare+Choice).

Expresses the sense of Congress that the amount of funds appropriated for the Department of Veterans Affairs for medical care in any fiscal year beginning after the enactment of this Act should not be reduced because of the implementation of the Medicare Reimbursement Program for Veterans.
