Simply text a message to 53079 stating, “Here,” once you arrive in the parking lot of the facility where you have a scheduled appointment.
Are you familiar with VEText? The program allows you to notify your VA NorCal care team when you have arrived at the facility for your scheduled appointment. To use this feature, you must have a text-capable cell phone number on file with us. The process is simple:
• Once you arrive at the parking lot, text “HERE” to 53079 to alert the care team that you're here at the facility and waiting to be called to your appointment.
• You will receive a text acknowledging your check-in status.
• When the care team is ready, you will receive a text with instructions to proceed to your appointment.
