Veterans can now keep track of their past and upcoming VA medical appointments and get e-mail appointment reminders through My HealtheVet (www.myhealth.va.gov).
Veterans who use My HealtheVet can view their VA appointments in the ‘Get Care’ section of their account. The system also allows them to set up e-mail reminders of upcoming appointments if they elect to subscribe to e-mail reminders for appointments on the Health Calendar within the website.
The feature is only available to Veterans who have registered for a My HealtheVet account and have been in-person authenticated. The in-person authentication process upgrades the Veteran’s account, which allows them to take advantage of all the advanced features available on My HealtheVet. The in-person authentication can be done when you come to the VA for an appointment, see a Release of Information clerk and they will assist you.
Veterans who are interested in creating a My HealtheVet account should log onto www.myhealth.va.gov and click on “Register Today”, or contact Brian Vetter, My HealtheVet Coordinator at 320-252-1670, extension 7335 for more information or assistance with the website.
