The very first step in obtaining access to VA health care benefits is to apply:
Before you apply, you may want to read more about VA’s health benefits on VA’s Health Benefits website which provides the latest information on VA health care services, providing tools to help you determine how, where and at what cost you can receive care and offering Veterans who are not already enrolled an opportunity to apply.
Once your application is successfully processed, VA will notify you of your enrollment priority group assignment and whether you are enrolled.
If enrolled, VA will send you a personalized Veterans Health Benefits Handbook, which will detail your assigned enrollment priority group, the VA health benefits you are eligible for and will provide important information concerning your access to VA health care.
The Health Benefits Handbook is designed to help you and your family understand VA’s health care system.
The Veterans Health Benefits Handbook is designed to provide Veterans and their families with the information they need to understand VA’s health care system: eligibility requirements, the enrollment process, enrollment priority groups, copayments that certain Veterans may be charged and the health benefits and services available to Veterans.
Additionally, in the handbook you will find helpful information about My HealtheVet, creditable coverage for Medicare Part D, income verification and much more.
While all enrolled Veterans enjoy access to VA’s comprehensive medical benefits package, certain benefits (for example, dental care) may vary from individual to individual and depending on each Veteran’s unique eligibility status.
The mission of the VA health care system is to serve Veterans by providing the highest-quality health care available anywhere in the world.
America’s Veterans and their families deserve nothing less.
