The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking a unique approach to improve services and benefits for female veterans. Instead of just providing a blanket of services, the VA is calling female veterans nationwide and asking them what type of services and benefits they would like to see provided as well as how the VA can improve healthcare services.
This is a major initiative on the part of the VA, and a necessary one. By 2020, female veterans are expected to make up 10% of the entire population of veterans and constitute 9.5% of the number of veterans using health care services from the VA.
Representatives from the VA’s Health Resource Center (HRC) are contacting female veterans that aren’t using VA services yet to enroll for their services and, at the same time, representatives will be contacting female veterans, of existing VA health care services, to provide information on how to access them.
In the very near future, every VA medical facility will provide complete care from a single provider for primary care. Currently , the VA does provide clinicians trained in every area of care for female veterans, to include preventive care and health screenings.
