In the Spotlight
Get Your COVID-19 Test Results Online
What happens after the test
If you were tested at a VA facility and have a My HealtheVet Premium account, you can view your results online. 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 test positive, your VA care team will call you to talk about the next steps.
With your Premium account, you can view lab and test results that are currently in your VA electronic health record. If you do not have, or do not know if you have a My HealtheVet Premium account, read the instructions on upgrading your account.
Here’s how to find your COVID-19 test results:
