My HealtheVet Features
How can I get information about my VA benefits?
My HealtheVet is not connected with VA benefits. You can obtain this information directly from the VA by one of these methods: You can submit your request by email to the VA through the Ask a Question link on https://iris.va.gov/, or contact a Benefits Representative at 1-800-827-1000 (Monday-Friday from 8 to 8 Eastern time). These VA specialists can answer any questions you may have.
I heard My HealtheVet would let me see my personal health record online. Is that right?
Yes. My HealtheVet is a free tool that allows Veterans to quickly access and manage their VA health records online and keep track of test results. Veterans can also record their health history, including allergies and immunization history.
My HealtheVet's prescription refill feature allows Veterans to request a VA refill online and track prescription deliveries. Veterans can also find a history of their VA prescriptions.
The Secure Messaging feature gives Veterans with a Premium account a safe and convenient way to communicate online with their VA health care provider between appointments. Veterans can discuss their health, follow-up care instructions, medications, lab results, and other non-emergent, routine questions. Veterans can also view upcoming VA appointments in My HealtheVet.
The VA Blue Button is a feature available to My HealtheVet members. This feature allows you to view, print, save, and/or download your VA health information in My HealtheVet. You may be able to access specific VA Blue Button features based on your My HealtheVet account type.
I want to print out more detailed self-entered information than what is available on the summary page. Can I do this?
You can print the comments fields for individual self-entered information entries. In order to print the comments fields and other details, follow these instructions:
From the Summary page, click the blue, underlined date or title that identifies the entry. This will show you the details of the record.

What can I find in the Medical Library?
My HealtheVet offers two health education libraries. On the Research Health tab, you can access the Medical Library, which contains links to the Veterans Health Library and MedlinePlus® libraries. You can research topics that include conditions, diseases, medical tests, medications and other useful medical information.
