My Health VA! Your Health Companion
The VA program My Health VA (MHV) is the gateway to veteran health benefits and services. It provides access to trusted health information, links to Federal and VA benefits and resources, the Personal Health Journal, and now online VA prescription refill. In the future, MHV registrants will be able to view appointments and key portions of their VA medical records online, and much more! My Health VA is a powerful tool to help you better understand and manage your health. They offer three account types:
Anyone who registers on My Health VA starts with a Basic Account. This account does not require that you have your identity authenticated. A Basic Account provides limited access to features in My Health VA that you self-enter. You may use the journals and other tools to track your health measures. However, you cannot see your personal information located in VA or DoD systems.
This account is only for Veterans and/or VA Patients. It is a higher level of access to features offered in My Health VA. It provides you the ability to view some information in your VA and/or DoD records. This account does not require that you have your identity authenticated. However, when you register as a VA Patient, your profile information is linked to VA/DoD records. When this happens, you are given an Advanced Account. If you are a VA patient, this type of account lets you refill your VA prescriptions online using My Health VA.
This account is also only for Veterans and/or VA Patients. It gives users the highest level of access to My Health VA features. To get this type of account you need to go through Authentication and have your My Health VA profile information (full name, Social Security Number (SSN), date of birth (DOB) and gender linked to VA/DoD records. After you register, your account type will be displayed in the Member Login box.
