Easily Schedule and View Your VA Appointments

Conveniently request VA appointments through any mobile device

Sometimes making and managing appointments to fit your schedule can be tough. There are long lines or hold times, and too many details to remember. VA Online Scheduling is here to make the process easier for you from start to finish. Whether you're scheduling a routine doctor's visit or seeking a specialty appointment, VA Online Scheduling can get you there in a few easy steps.

Using online scheduling

Depending on your VA Medical Center, VA Online Scheduling may help you:

  • Schedule a variety of appointment types

  • Request assistance from a VA scheduler for an online appointment

  • View upcoming appointments, including joining any scheduled Video Visits

  • Cancel appointments

Types of care

You may be eligible for care through a non-VA provider in your local community depending on your health care needs, and if you meet specific eligibility criteria. Even if you are eligible for Veteran Community Care, you generally still have the option to receive care from a VA medical facility.

In most cases, you must receive approval from VA before receiving care from a community provider to avoid being billed for it. Emergency care does not require advance approval.

You can schedule and request appointments at VA and participating health centers for the following:

  • Primary Care

  • Outpatient Mental Health

  • Amputation Services

  • Audiology

  • Clinical Pharmacy

  • MOVE! Weight Management Program

  • Nutrition and Food Services

  • Ophthalmology

  • Optometry

  • Social Work

  • Podiatry

Your VA Medical Center may not offer every service; check with your health care team on what is available from VA, or possibly from Community Care.

Text Message Reminders to Confirm or Cancel

VEText is a text messaging program from your VA Medical Center that will send you a couple of reminders before each appointment. It will let you confirm or cancel an appointment. Most Veteran patients are automatically enrolled in VEText.
