Sign up for a Premium account in person 

You can get a Premium My HealtheVet account in person at a VA health facility where you’re registered as a patient. You’ll need to bring a government-issued photo ID with you. This can be either your Veteran Health Identification Card or a valid driver’s license.

A VA staff member will verify your identity. Then they’ll record your information in the My HealtheVet system and confirm you’re eligible for a Premium account.

Note: If your information on your government-issued photo ID doesn’t match your official VA medical record, bring a secondary ID such as your Social Security card. This will help us verify your identity.
