Every vet can use VA health care system with confidence you’ll get the best care. Don’t live near VA healthcare service, that’s ok. You may need to travel to the nearest VA facility now and then however, once you get fully integrated into the system you can receive care near you.
Pres. Trump pushed for vets to get top notch medical care. VA offers offers community care https://www.va.gov/communitycare/ Once your primary Dr. gives a referral to go to your community you can choose your Dr. or use the Dr. the VA assigns your local area. My experience with this- I use the medical facility assigned several times. My VA sends me to the “ritzy” rich people Dr’s. It is the best care available in my area.
They also offer video appointments with your primary care Dr. so you don’t have to commute if you live a distance from the VA. Sign up for MyHeatheVet https://www.myhealth.va.gov/mhv-portal-web/home For access to all your medical records, communicate with your Dr., get scripts filled & sent to your home, make appointments etc….

VA provides all your medical needs at no cost to the veteran if you have qualified disability rating. At worst, if you don’t have a disability, you pay a co-pay for good care.
