About the VA

Department of Veterans Affairs is the largest integrated health care provider in the United States, serving over 9 million Veterans annually, with approximately 371,000 full- and part-time employees providing care at 1,314 health care facilities, including 171 VA Medical Centers and 1,126 outpatient sites of care.

More than 7.9 million Veterans, their family members, and survivors are enrolled in the VA health system, with more than 6.3 million seeking treatment each year. Currently, that annual treatment involves 773,600 inpatient visits and 60 million outpatient visits. About 250,000 fulltime employees and 90,000 health professional trainees work in interdisciplinary care teams to deliver those patient services daily.

VA's patient population crosses a wide spectrum of individuals, from elderly World War II Veterans to baby boomer Vietnam Vets, to today's younger heroes who served during the Gulf War era and in the present-day Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. VA also serves a growing number of women Veterans, who currently account for seven percent of the total Veteran population.

  • For retired military personnel, these benefits are in addition to full monthly retirement pay or pension
