Veterans Health Administration
Health Care for Women Veterans
With the population of Women veterans projected to rise from 1.6 million in 2000 to 1.9 million in 2020, the VA has been focusing on integrating quality women's medical services into the VA system. However, studies show that 66.9 percent of women who do not use the VA for women's services consider private practice physicians more convenient. Also, 48.5 percent of women do not use women's services at the VA due to a lack of knowledge of VA eligibility and services. This study indicates that the VA still has room for improvement with convenience and education regarding women's medical services.
