Health Care

Logo of the My HealtheVet program 

The Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs does not provide direct health care to veterans other than that provided to residents of our four veterans nursing homes. 
KDVA strongly encourages all veterans to sign up for health care provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans in Kentucky have access to VA healthcare through eight different VA Medical Centers and 27 local Community-Based Outreach Clinics (CBOC) and healthcare centers.
