About VA Health Chat

Receive care virtually from VA without stepping into a healthcare facility. The VA Health Chat App provides easy, online access to chat with VA healthcare staff when you have minor health questions or need other minor healthcare assistance. VA is currently testing VA Health Chat for Veterans receiving care at the locations below. Test results will help us determine if VA Health Chat should be offered more broadly. If you are at a test location and choose to chat with a VA health care team member, please be sure to complete the survey after you chat. Your feedback will help us determine if VA Health Chat should be expanded nationally to other Veterans. Thank you for your service.

Every vet should have this app. I found it by accident and it was much better than calling on the phone. I am 100% percent disabled and this app is so important.

Needed to talk to my team for some orthotics. Everything went smooth. Not sure what everyone is complaining about.
