Veterans can apply for VA health care enrollment by completing VA Form 10- 10EZ, “Application for Health Benefits.” The 10-10EZ may be obtained by visiting, calling or writing any VA health care facility or Veterans’ benefits office. You can also call the VA Health Benefits Call Center toll-free at 1-877-222 VETS (1-877-222-8387) to determine your eligibility or access the form from the Health Administration Eligibility Reform Web site: www.va.gov/elig. For VA benefits, refer to Federal Benefits for Veterans and Dependents at www1.va.gov/opa/publications/benefits_book.asp. This booklet discusses the variety of Federal benefits available to Veterans and their dependents and survivors, such as: Compensation and Pension Montgomery GI Bill (Education); Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Veterans Group Life Insurance, and Home Loan Guaranty.
Additional information and application forms can be obtained at VA’s Web site: www.va.gov. The Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp, allows you to complete and submit application forms on-line.
You may also call the VA nationwide toll-free number, 1-800-827-1000, for specific benefit information.
Another resource for Veterans to use to receive information and services on VA benefits is called eBenefits. eBenefits is an online portal for Service Members and Veterans to access their personalized DoD and VA information. Some features of eBenefits include checking the status of your claim, reviewing payment history and requesting your personnel file from DoD; however, you will need to obtain a premium eBenefits account.
A premium eBenefits account allows you to access your personalized information and use other personalized features through the portal by obtaining a DS Logon. If you are a Veteran and would like to receive a DS Logon for your premium eBenefits account, please go to any VA Regional Office with two forms of identification. You can go to our Web site at www.va.gov to obtain a list of VA Regional Offices. Service Members and retired Veterans do not need to go to a VA Regional Office and may use their DoD CAC or myPay account PIN to obtain their premium eBenefits account by going to the Web site below.
