    VA Launching New Personalized Veterans Health Benefits Handbook

    WASHINGTON (Nov. 18, 2010) - The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is
    piloting new, personalized Veterans Health Benefits Handbooks. The
    handbooks are tailored to provide enrolled Veterans with the most
    relevant health benefits information based on their own specific
    eligibility. In essence, each handbook will be written for the
    individual Veteran.

    "These handbooks will give Veterans everything they need to know and
    leave out everything that doesn't apply to them," said Secretary of
    Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. "Our Veterans will now have a
    comprehensive, easy to understand roadmap to the medical benefits they
    earned with their service."

    In addition to highlighting each Veteran's specific health benefits, the
    handbook also provides contact information for the Veteran's preferred
    local facility, ways to schedule personal appointments, guidelines for
    communicating treatment needs and an explanation of the Veteran's
    responsibilities, such as copayments when applicable.

    "Enhancing access isn't just about expanding the kinds of services VA
    provides. It also includes making sure we do everything we can to ensure
    Veterans have a clear understanding of the benefits available to them so
    they can make full use of the services they have earned," Shinseki said.

    The new handbooks will initially be available only to certain Veterans
    in Cleveland and Washington, D.C., areas. Following the pilot phase,
    full implementation is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2011 for across
    the county.

    For additional information, go to or call
    VA's toll-free number at 1-877-222-VETS (8387).
