VA Health Care Enrollment

For most veterans, entry into the VA health care system begins by applying for enrollment. To apply, complete VA Form 10-10EZ, Appli¬cation for Health Benefits, which may be obtained from any VA health care facility or regional benefits office, online at or by calling 1-877-222-VETS (8387). Once enrolled, veterans can receive services at VA facilities anywhere in the country.
Veterans who are enrolled for VA health care are afforded privacy rights under federal law. VA’s Notice of Privacy Practices is available at the VA health care Web site listed above.  

The following three categories of veterans are not required to enroll, but are urged to do so to permit better planning of health resources: 

1.Veterans with a service-connected disability of 50 percent or more.

2.Veterans seeking care for a disability the military determined was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, but which VA has not yet rated, within 12 months of discharge.

3.Veterans seeking care for a service-connected disability only. 

4.Veterans seeking registry examinations (Ionizing Radiation, Agent Orange, Gulf War/Operation Iraqi Freedom and Depleted Uranium).
