How do I get in touch with a Veterans Affairs (VA) representative, VA hospital or clinic?
How can I obtain a copy of my DD 214?
There are two ways: You must have access to a printer and a fax machine to send in signature verification. The process to obtain a DD 214 through this website may take up to five (5) weeks.
Once you obtain your DD 214, our office will hold on to a copy of it for you upon request so that you may access it easily in the future.
Am I able to receive healthcare at a VA clinic or hospital? How can I enroll to receive care?
You can apply for enrollment at www.va.gov/healthbenefits/apply/. The process will take about five weeks and after accepted, you can schedule an appointment usually four to six weeks out.
To ensure that those with less healthcare options receive the care that they need, income does play a part in determining who has access to clinic and hospital services. To learn more about financial qualifications, visit: www.va.gov/healthbenefits/cost/financial_assessment.asp.
