How do you register for veteran's hospital services?


Quick Answer

Qualified applicants must register for services by submitting VA Form 10-10EZ Application for Health Benefits either in-person at the local VA health care facility, by telephone at 1-877-222-VETS (8387), by mail or online.

Details of all of the health benefits offered to veterans can be found on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. This includes a hospital locator, how to access various benefits, such as dental insurance, prescription benefits, transportation programs, and more. For services that are deemed not feasibly available from a VA medical facility, there is the non-VA Medical Care Program, which is offered to eligible veterans by community-based providers.

Veterans already enrolled for VA health care can update their information by completing VA Form 10-10EZR Renewal Application for Health Benefits, also located on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website under Health Benefits. Qualified applicants must have served in the active military, naval or air service and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable.
