My HealtheVet Account Types
My HealtheVet offers two account types:
Anyone who registers on My HealtheVet starts with a Basic account. A Basic account provides limited access to features in My HealtheVet that you self-enter. You may use the journals and other tools to track your health measures. However, you cannot view your personal information located in VA or DoD systems.
With a Basic account you may use My HealtheVet to:
Add information to a personal health journal about over-the-counter medications, allergies, military health history, medical events, tests, and allergies
Record and track personal information such as contact information, emergency contacts, health care doctors and providers, and health insurance information
Record and track personal health measurements (blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, heart rate, body temperature, weight, pain level, etc.) in Vitals and Readings
Print a health insurance wallet ID card with the personal information entered into the personal health record
Set personal goals. My Goals makes it easy for you to set goals, identify your strengths and tasks, to overcome obstacles, and track your progress. My Goals can be used to help your VA health care team understand what is important to you.
Use the VA Blue Button (Download My Data) to view, save, print, or download and save your self-entered information; then share this with your caregiver, non-VA provider or others you trust. Your self-entered information may include:
Family Health History
Health Care Providers - Health Insurance
Immunizations - Labs and Tests
Medications and Supplements
Military Health History
My Goals: Current Goals
My Goals: Completed Goals
Vitals and Readings
After you register, your account type will be displayed on the welcome banner near the top of any page. If you have a Basic account, there will be a after your name.
When you register and your profile information (full name, Social Security number, date of birth [DOB] and birth sex) is connected to your VA and/or DoD records, your Basic account may upgrade to the Premium level. Premium account users registered as VA patients or CHAMPVA beneficiaries can request and track VA prescription refills. (Advanced accounts are no longer offered as of September 15, 2021.)

Anyone who registers on My HealtheVet starts with a Basic account. Upgrading to a Premium account gives users full access to My HealtheVet features. To get this type of account, you need to complete the identity verification process and have your My HealtheVet profile information (full name, Social Security number (SSN), date of birth (DOB), and birth sex) connected to VA/DoD records. After you upgrade to Premium, your account type will be displayed on the welcome banner near the top of any page. If you have a Premium account, there will be a after your name.
With a Premium Account you may use My HealtheVet to view key portions of your VA health record, such as:

Download your VA Continuity of Care Document (VA CCD). This is a standard electronic exchange document, used for sharing patient information. The VA CCD will be a summary of important health information from the Veterans VA Electronic Health Record.
Use Secure Messaging to communicate online with your VA health care team. You may send messages to request or cancel VA appointments. Use it to ask about lab results or find out about a medication or health issue. Or simply to discuss other general health matters.
Note: Once your account is connected to your VA/DoD records, your personal traits (full name, Social Security number (SSN), date of birth (DOB) and birth sex) are locked down on your profile page. You cannot change this information. This is done to protect your information.
