Women Veterans have their own unique health care needs, some combat related. VA has been, and continues to be, committed to making sure that Women Veterans receive the best available care for all of their specific health care needs.

The new Quick Start Guide helps female Veterans understand what documentation is needed and how to apply for VA benefits, along with a summary of health care services and resources including:

“The patriotic women who served this country deserve a VA that is here to support them and their specific needs, and that is what we continuously strive to do at VA. Women are serving in greater numbers than ever before and because of that, we at VA have to be ready to serve them more than ever before.” – Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs Pamela Powers
