VA to Improve Online Claims Process

FacebookTwitterPinterestEmailShare

As part of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki’s effort to streamline access to benefits, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has removed the signature requirement for Veterans who electronically submit an online 10-10EZ “Application for Health Benefits.”  

VA hopes this will greatly reduce the time it takes for Veterans who apply online to access their medical benefits.

Previously, Veterans filling out the online application were required to print a copy, sign it and send to their local medical center or wait for a copy to be mailed to them for signature and mailing before enrollment into the VA healthcare system could occur.  

For additional information, go to www.va.gov/healtheligibility or call VA’s toll free number at 1-877-222-VETS (8387). The online form is available at https://www.1010ez.med.va.gov/sec/vha/1010ez/.
