My HealtheVet Wellness Reminders provide patients customized, online health reminders. Wellness Reminders allow you to partner with your health care provider in monitoring your health. Some reminders are for everyone, and some reminders are for people with known risks.
Note: In the near future, Wellness Reminders will no longer be available on My HealtheVet. Historical Wellness Reminders will be available through your VA Blue Button report. Your VA Blue Button report is located under the Personal Information tab.
Recommended preventative services for men and women can be found on the VA's National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention website.
