Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Dr. David Shulkin has announced the nationwide roll-out of an application to make it easier to scheduled or change appointments with VA. The Veteran Appointment Request app (VAR) is an application that makes it possible for veterans to use their smartphone, tablet or computer to schedule or modify appointments at VA facilities. The VAR capability is currently available to veterans at several locations nationwide. During its initial rollout, veterans used the app to book more than 4,000 appointments with their providers. VA will continue to roll out the application nationwide eventually bringing the capability to all VA facilities and clinics. For more information, visit the Veteran Appointment Request webpage.
