VA Health Care and Medical Benefits Package

Health care is the most visible of all Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits. The VA has about 1,300 care facilities, including 163 hospitals, 850 ambulatory care and community-based outpatient clinics, 206 counseling centers, 137 nursing homes and 43 domiciliary facilities.  Due to technology and changes in national and VA health care trends, VA has evolved from a hospital-based system to a primarily outpatient-focused system over the past five years.  With 25,000 fewer employees, VA provided care to one million more veterans in 2001 than in 1995.
