My VA Access Health Care Initiative

The Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) recently announced new steps VA is taking to improve veterans' access to health care. The new initiative MyVA Access will offer that health care as soon as possible to veterans how and where they desire to receive that care. VA also hopes to offer same day appointments when it is medically necessary at all of its medical centers by the end of 2016. Also, a new smart phone app called the Veteran Appointment Request App allows veterans to view, schedule and cancel primary care and mental health appointments as well as track the status of the appointment request and review upcoming appointments. It is currently available in 10 locations. VA expects to make the app available to all Veterans by early 2017. VA is also working on a new website enhancement that will allow veterans to check wait times in real time wherever they live.
