About the OIG Hotline

Veterans Crisis Line

The OIG Hotline receives, screens, and refers OIG mission-related complaints within VA. Cases are accepted on a select basis regarding issues having the most potential risk to veterans, VA programs and operations, or for which the OIG may be the only avenue of redress.

Important Note: By law, OIG has access to all of VA’s records because it has the responsibility of overseeing VA programs and operations. VA employees who contact the OIG Hotline may provide the OIG with medical records and other VA records without violating Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or privacy laws. However, the information should be transmitted in a secure way, such as by registered mail, encrypted or password-protected email, or secure fax. VA employees should not send VA medical records or similar sensitive VA records via this portal.
