Self-Schedule Appointments

VA's Veteran Appointment Request app is available at select locations. The app makes it possible for Veterans to self-schedule primary care appointments and request assistance in booking both primary care and mental health appointments at the VA facilities where they receive care. In addition to scheduling appointments, Veterans can use the Veteran Appointment Request app to track appointment details and the status of requests, send messages about requested appointments, receive notifications and cancel appointments.
