Veterans can now track the status of most of their prescriptions online when the prescription is mailed from the VA Mail Order Pharmacy. More than 57,000 veterans are currently using the service through My HealtheVet, an online feature that allows veterans to partner with their health care team. The number is expected to grow as VA starts to educate veterans about the new feature. Later this month, the tracking feature will include images of the medication that is being dispensed. Over the next year, a secure messaging alert will be added so that veterans know when a medication was placed in the mail.
