How long will I have to wait to get an appointment for health care?

If you are newly enrolled and/ or are a new patient with a service-connected disability rating of less than 50% and require care for a service-connected disability, you will be scheduled for a primary care evaluation within 30 days of desired date after requesting VA care. If your outpatient appointment is not scheduled within this period, care can be arranged at another VA health care facility within 30 days or you can obtain the services on a fee basis under a sharing agreement or contract at VA expense. If you are a veteran with a 50% or higher service-connected disability rating and you are not a new patient, the request to schedule an appointment will be reviewed by you VA medical provider who will determine a medically appropriate timeline for an appointment. A clinic visit will be scheduled or rescheduled, based on the medical provider’s review. You will be contacted by telephone or through correspondence of your appointment.
