VA is conducting an official survey of women Veterans
Welcome to Women Veterans Health Care!
We're glad you are here! Use this site to find the available health services and resources you have earned as a woman Veteran.
Our primary care and comprehensive women's health services include:
VA also provides specialty services, such as:
- Gynecologic and fertility treatment
- Sensory aids and prosthetics, including gender-specific items like post-mastectomy needs
- Other specialties including radiology, neurology, cardiology, orthopedics, rheumatology, oncology, and endocrinology
Are you using all the health benefits you have earned?
Only 44% of women Veterans are enrolled in VA health care. To learn more about the health benefits that you have earned and deserve, sign up for these training sessions through the VA Women's Health Reengagement Training (heaRT).
A majority of women Veterans are not utilizing their earned benefits. As a result, they do not have access to the VA health care system or the low- or cost-free care it offers.
It's never too late to enroll in VA health care services.
You are a Veteran, and you have earned and deserve respect. We are working together to make VA a place where you feel like you belong. More information.
The 2023 VA Barriers to Care Survey
Have you received a telephone call or letter in the mail asking you to take the Barriers to Care survey? If so, we hope you will respond!
The Department of Veterans Affairs, in collaboration with the research companies Trilogy Federal, Altarum, and American Directions, is currently conducting the VA Barriers to Care Survey. The purpose of this survey is to learn about women Veterans' experiences getting the health care they need. Whether or not you are a current user of VA health care, if you receive a letter or phone call we would like to hear from you!
To minimize the burden on the public, this survey is being conducted with a small, random sample of women Veterans. If you are selected this is your chance to share your experiences with the VA health care system. However, you do not have to participate if you do not want to. Your decision about taking part in this survey will not affect any services you receive from VA or your eligibility for services in the future.
Even if you aren't invited to take the survey, we care about your experiences. The Women Veterans Call Center is available weekdays and Saturday to take your call.
The information you supply will be confidential and protected by the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 522a) and the VA's confidentiality statute (38 U.S.C. 5701) as implemented by 38 CFR 1.526(a) and 38 CFR 1.576(b). This survey has been reviewed and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB control number: 2900-0795). If you have questions, please call our tollfree number: 833-461-0227 or email at VeteranHealthStudy@americandirections.com.
The official website to complete your survey online is WomenVeteranSurvey.org.
Telephone interviews are being conducted by American Directions, a veteran-owned research company. The secure online survey portal is hosted by Altarum, a non-profit health research company.
