VA offering personal health care handbooks to vets
Published: February 22, 2012
WASHINGTON – Veterans enrolled in VA health care in coming months will receive personalized handbooks with information on their benefits, local medical facilities, applicable copays and how to schedule an appointment.
The booklets are part of a new push by VA officials to keep veterans informed about available services and benefits available , department officials said. Distribution of the handbooks began this month, and 8.5 million are expected to be sent out to every veteran enrolled in the system by the end of the year.
Veterans will also receive updated handbooks if their benefit options change. Officials said the books will include “a personalized listing of health benefits based on each veteran’s specific eligibility,” along with guidelines for communicating with nearby clinical teams and other pertinent local VA facility information.
More information about handbooks is available at the VA website or by calling 1-877-222-8387.
