“You served your Country; you earned the best health care possible!”
The VA Connecticut Healthcare System focuses on all aspects of a Veteran’s well-being!
Weighing your options and making the right choice can be difficult when it comes to health care, especially when you are paying for things you don’t need or life changes leave you uncovered for the things you do. That is why the VA offers a health care package that covers the health, wellness, foundational, and long-term needs of each and every Veteran. The VA Connecticut Healthcare System is a state-of-the-art network designed specifically for the needs of Veterans. You can enroll anytime in health care that requires no annual fees, premiums, or deductibles. The VA is able to provide you with competitive, cost-effective, quality health care options at little to no cost and the Veteran can use their private insurance along with VA health care. No matter your needs, the VA Connecticut Healthcare System has you covered.
The Connecticut Healthcare System continues to be the benchmark of excellence and value in health care by providing exemplary services that are both patient-centered and evidence-based. This care is delivered by engaged, collaborative teams in an integrated environment that supports learning, discovery and continuous improvement. In fact, the VA partners with institutions of higher learning, such as Yale, to perform the cutting edge research that has made the VA one of the biggest teaching hospitals in the country. Through these efforts the VA will emphasize prevention and population health and contribute to the Connecticut’s well-being through education, research and service.
If a Veteran served in the military and received an honorable discharge they may qualify for VA health care benefits. Those who served in the Reserves or National Guard may also qualify if they were called to active duty by Federal order and completed the full period of the active duty.
