My HealtheVet offers three account types:

Basic Account -

Anyone who registers on My HealtheVet starts with a Basic Account. This account does not require that you have your identity Authenticated*. A Basic Account provides limited access to features in My HealtheVet that you self-enter. You may use the journals and other tools to track your health measures. However, you cannot see your personal information located in VA or DoD systems.

* This is a process by which VA verifies a Veterans' identity before allowing access to their VA health record. To learn more, go to: Upgrading your My HealtheVet account through In-Person or Online Authentication.

With a Basic Account you may use My HealtheVet to:

Use the VA Blue Button (Download My Data) to view, save, print or download and save your self-entered information; then share this with your caregiver, non-VA provider or others you trust. Your self-entered information may include:

After you register, your account type will be displayed in the Member Login box, as an icon after your name. For example if you have a Basic Account, there will be a Basic Account Icon after your name. With an Advanced Account, it will be an Advanced Account Icon.

Advanced Account -

This account is only for Veterans and/or VA Patients. It is a higher level of access to features offered in My HealtheVet. It may provide you the ability to view some information in your VA and/or DoD records. This account does not require that you have your identity Authenticated*. However, when you register as a Veteran/VA Patient, your profile information (full name, Social Security Number (SNN), date of birth (DOB) and gender) is linked to VA/DoD records. When this happens, you are given an Advanced Account. If you are a VA patient, this type of account lets you refill your VA prescriptions online using My HealtheVet.

* This is a process by which VA verifies a Veterans' identity before allowing access to their VA health record. To learn more, go to: Upgrading your My HealtheVet account through In-Person or Online Authentication.

After you register, your account type will be displayed in the Member Login box. For example if your account is upgraded from Basic to Advanced, there will be an Advanced Account Icon after your name.

Note: When you are issued an Advanced or Premium Account, your personal traits (full name, Social Security Number (SNN), date of birth (DOB) and gender) are locked down on your Profile page. You cannot change this information. This is done to protect your information.
