“I opened the app, signed in with my My HealtheVet Premium account credentials, and from there it was easy to follow the prompts and begin using the app,” he said. “I was able to chat with a nurse within one minute."

VA team members are available to chat Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. local time, excluding holidays. 

Download the VA Health Chat app on the VA App Store, the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The app is also available through the VA Launchpad app.
