Effective June 30, 2016, Veterans applying for health care will be directed to the health care application on vets.gov. The new application is for Veterans who have not previously applied for VA health care.
Unlike the online 10-10EZ and previous applications, this form does not require special software to open, nor does it need to be printed by the Veteran or VA staff to be processed. The application can also be submitted without a login.
We believe it is important to make this process as easy as possible. A log-in option will be added later this year, allowing Veterans to save their application and to update their information, but it won’t be required to apply for health care.”
The 10-10EZ (paper form) will still be in the forms database, so Veterans and third parties serving Veterans can access the form to print it out.
However, the expectation is that anyone seeking to apply for care eligibility online will use the online application, or call the number listed on vets.gov.
