VA Streamlines Online Applications for Health
Sept 8 2011
Automated 10-10EZR Form Simplifies Updates
WASHINGTON (September 8, 2011) - The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
has automated its online Health Benefits Renewal (10-10EZR) form as part
of its ongoing effort to streamline access to benefits.
"This action dramatically reduces the time it will take for enrolled
Veterans to submit updates to their demographic information and further
reduces access barriers to needed care for Veterans," said Secretary of
Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.
Previously, Veterans filling out the online 10-10EZR were required to
print a copy, sign it and send it to their local medical center before
updates to their personal, insurance or financial information could
occur. Veterans may now submit these updates online.
For additional information, go to www.va.gov/healtheligibility or call
VA's toll-free number at 1-877-222-VETS (8387). The online form is
