We found this news from the Long Beach, California VA (July 17, 2020). If this is not yet available at your VA, hopefully this is coming soon for everyone.
“Veterans now have real time access to their health care provider no matter where they are.
Veterans can take the extra step to ensure the safety of not only themselves but their families. By booking their next appointment utilizing VA Video Connect (VVC), Veterans reduce the amount of travel.
VVC utilizes encrypted video connection to ensure safety and privacy of information. The connection can be accessed through mobile phone, tablet or laptop.
At VA Long Beach, Veterans health and safety remain a top priority. VCC allows each patient to remain safe from the spread and contraction of COVID-19 by reducing the amount of patient flow in and around the hospital.
Veterans interested in booking and utilizing VVC may speak with their provider or contact the Call Center at 562-826-5151, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to learn more.”
