Blue Button Availability
Some information that comes from your VA health record may not be presented right away in My HealtheVet or your VA Blue Button. This is because your information may first need to be reviewed by a member of your VA health care team. Also, if needed, this gives your provider time to discuss your results with you before you view them in My HealtheVet.
The table below gives you the expected length of time until your VA information is available for display in the Blue Button. In some situations, it may take longer to view your information.
If you have any questions about your information please visit the FAQs. You may also contact your VA health care team with your questions.
