VA is making it easier to take charge of your benefits and health care with its new Health and Benefits mobile application. Download VA Health and Benefits with the click of a button and get access to the resources you need — wherever you are and whenever you want them.

The VA Health and Benefits mobile app is a smarter, more convenient way to manage your VA health and benefits information. You can enable face or finger ID to skip the login, view and cancel health care appointments, view claims and appeals status, upload documentation, message your doctor, locate facilities, and access the Veterans Crisis Line — right from your phone. The app also makes it easy to prove your status as a Veteran so you can take advantage of available retailer discounts.

"I went into my local hardware store and opened my VA Health and Benefits mobile app. I was logged in so a quick glance at my phone showed them I was a Veteran, and I was able to get the Veteran discount without any paperwork. It was easy and convenient," said a Veteran and VA app user review.

VA has heard from Veterans since the mobile app launched, and the reviews are positive! Nearly 700,000 users in the Veteran community have already downloaded the app, which has a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars on Apple App Store and 4.6 out of 5 on Google Play Store. As usage grows, so will the app. New features expected in the coming year will allow you to:

  • Refill prescriptions;
  • Request appointments;
  • Manage debt.
