Women Veterans Healthcare
Women Veterans are eligible for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits including primary care, specialty care, mental healthcare, and reproductive healthcare services.
VA provides management of acute and chronic illnesses, preventive care, contraceptive services, menopause management, and cancer screenings, including pap smear and mammograms, and gynecology. Maternity care is covered in the Medical Benefits package.
Women Veterans receive maternity care from an OB/GYN, and care for their newborn children is covered for seven days after birth. Infertility evaluation and limited treatments are also available. Women Veterans Program Managers are available at all VA facilities to assist women Veterans in their health care and benefits.
