The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is committed to informing enrolled Veterans about VA health benefits and services they have earned and deserve. VA has produced a new and improved personalized Veterans Health Benefits Handbook for Veterans who are enrolled for VA health care.
The new handbooks are smaller in size and contain updated and new information on VA health care benefits.
Like the previous handbooks, the new handbooks are tailored specifically for each Veteran and provide detailed, updated information about the VA health care benefits the Veteran may be eligible to receive such as medications, prosthetics and dental care.
The handbook also provides answers to common questions, contact information for the Veteran's preferred facility, instructions on how to schedule appointments, information regarding the Affordable Care Act, the Veteran’s copay responsibilities, if any, and much more.
The Veterans Health Benefits Handbook link on eBenefits has been temporarily taken offline. This link allows enrolled Veterans the opportunity to print and/or save a copy of the handbook.
The new handbook will be available on eBenefits early in 2015. For more information about eBenefits and how to sign up, visit https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits-portal/ebenefits.portal
