Streamlined Health-Care Form 10-10EZ

by Levi Newman on June 24, 2010

Applying for VA health-care benefits is even simpler now that the agency has streamlined its online application process.

The new-and-improved “Application for Health Benefits,” also known as Form 10-10EZ, features simpler navigation tools and allows veterans to save the application to their home computer. That means veterans can work on the form at their own pace and keep a copy of the completed form.

The old form required veterans to fill out the entire form in one sitting.

“VA is committed to tapping into the best that technology has to offer to ensure Veterans receive the benefits they have earned,” Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki said in a news release. “We continue to look for new ways to improve access to care and benefits.”

Along with added efficiencies, the new health-care form also features fewer questions than previous incarnations. Many of those that remain have been reworded to enhance clarity and comprehension. The VA is planning to make even more changes to the online application throughout the year.

To fill out or download the form, visit the VA’s health eligibility website.. Veterans can also call the VA at 1-877-222-8387.

I found the application form pretty easy to complete. The one thing the VA fails to inform you is that you can only be seen and loaded into at ONE health facility at a time. I travel a lot in retirement and find it hard to setup appointments because the Stratton VA facility in Albany, NY refuses to allow me to see a doctor for checkups. I am forced to wait until I return home and schedule appointments in Amarillo.
