VA Connecticut Healthcare System
Do you know a veteran?
If you live in the New London-area, you probably received a postcard from us. We’ve launched a campaign to reach veterans who are eligible for VA health care services but not enrolled. The goal of the campaign is to encourage eligible veterans to apply for the benefits they have earned through their military service.
Veterans are represented in every community, profession and socioeconomic group. If you are not a veteran, you probably know someone who served. VA Connecticut is a full-service, high quality health care organization providing care at two main campuses (Newington and West Haven) and six community based clinics (Danbury, New London, Stamford, Waterbury, Windham and Winsted). We also have an extensive homeless outreach program based in West Haven at the Errera Community Care Center.
If you are a veteran or know a veteran who has experienced a change in health care coverage, VA may be able to provide medical care.
In order to receive care at any VA facility, veterans must first enroll. To do this, veterans will need to provide a copy of their military discharge papers (DD 214). The discharge papers are used to determine eligibility for VA benefits by confirming the dates of military service and type of discharge. Veterans unable to locate their discharge papers can obtain a replacement by contacting the National Archives. .
Veterans can enroll online, in person at any VA facility or by phone (203-479-8139).
If you receive the card and you are a veteran but not enrolled, we hope you’ll consider taking advantage of the health benefits VA has to offer. If you are not a veteran, please pass the card.
Thank you for your support of this effort. We look forward to serving you.
