Where are My VA Lab Test Results?
COVID-19 Test Results Available Quickly, Online
Lab test results are one of the top five most popular features Veterans use on My HealtheVet. It's important to stay on top of your lab test results so that you can work with your provider to make decisions about your health and your health care.
COVID-19 test results are now available without a ‘hold period,’ meaning that they are available online in My HealtheVet as soon as VA has received or processed them.
If you want to get started, there are three ways to get lab test results:
Labs and Tests link
Use this direct link on the home page to quickly view your VA lab results and self-entered lab/test information.
To save or print a copy of your lab results, select the 'Print' option in the upper right-hand corner of the results page. You can also use the VA Blue Button Report or VA Health Summary.
VA Blue Button Report: You select the data range and information you want in a report that can be downloaded or printed. To use this option, choose the 'Health Records' link on the home page and select VA Blue Button Report. Choose the date range that includes the time frame for your test and select the 'VA Laboratory Results' in the 'Labs and Tests' section.
VA Health Summary: The VA Health Summary includes a comprehensive summary of recent VA care. It includes much more information than your labs. The summary includes a maximum of your 10 most recent laboratory tests over the last 24 months. To use this option, choose the 'Health Records' link on the Home Page and select 'VA Health Summary.' You may want to use this option if you are sharing your information with another health care provider. You can learn more from What is in the VA Health Summary? (PDF).
As a reminder, your lab results are available three days after they are verified. Depending on the test, the results may not be available right away. To learn more visit: Laboratory Tests. If you have questions about your results, contact your health care team by Secure Messaging (sign in required) or by phone.
