Your Health Care Team and My HealtheVet
Can I e-mail my doctor through My HealtheVet?
E-mail is not secure, and should not be used to contact your doctor. My HealtheVet provides Secure Messaging. This is a safe way to contact your VA doctor and health care team. You must have an upgraded account to use Secure Messaging. If you see Secure Messaging, but do not see your health care team listed, you will not be able to send a Secure Message. Talk to your health care team if this is the case. Ask them to sign you up so you can use Secure Messaging.
Does my VA doctor use My HealtheVet too?
My HealtheVet promotes partnership between Veteran patients and their doctors, and is supported as a national resource by clinical staff at your local VA Medical Center. Your doctor can help you use this tool to learn more about managing your own health.
How do I contact my VA doctor about My HealtheVet?
The best way to contact your VA doctor is always through your local VA Medical Center. My HealtheVet offers a great deal of health information, but will never take the place of a visit to your personal clinician.
