My HealtheVet's Account Types
Currently, My HealtheVet offers two account types: Basic, and Premium. Your account type determines which features on My HealtheVet you have access to. With a Premium account, you have full access to My HealtheVet Premium features. You can access the VA Pharmacy feature and your VA health records, connect with your provider and other VA staff, and log in to other VA online tools and services.
