After You Apply for Health Care Benefits
After you apply for VA health care, we’ll send you a letter in the mail to let you know if your application’s been approved.
How long does it take VA to make a decision?
What should I do if I disagree with your decision on my claim?
If your application isn’t approved and you disagree with the decision, you can file an appeal. We’ll send you a letter that explains why we didn’t approve your application. This letter includes directions on how to appeal the decision if you don’t agree with it. Download our “How Do I Appeal?” booklet.
