Question

I have heard that veterans are having trouble getting into and logging on to MyHealthVet. I went in this morning to refill my husbands prescriptions and didn't have any trouble at all. They have changed everything around, so you have to look at the screen to figure out what you need to click on to go where you want to go.

For those of you having problems, this is what I did to get my husbands prescriptions refilled:

Go to www.myhealth.va.gov

In the circled box on the right side of the page that reads "Go to my Healthvet", click on this.

Enter your User Id and password on the right side of the page

This logs you in

Click at the top of the page on "Pharmacy"

On the next screen click on the right side of the page that states "RX Refill"

On the next screen click on the left side of the page that states "Refill Prescriptions"

I ordered his prescriptions, submitted the request and printed it out and had no problems.

Hope this helps for anyone who needs it.

I think that I read sometime back that they were going to give the name of the drug or drugs that you were reordering but I didn't see the name of the drugs anywhere yesterday while I was in the site. It sure would help...instead of looking at the Rx #'s and then having to search your medicine bottles or your list that is if you make one out....It sure would help if they were to name the medications on the reorder page.

I guess after the SSA disaster we will never be able to download our medical records from myhealth.

I don't understand how all these banks, mortgage companies, stock brokers, employers, etc. can allow a person to access all types of information on your accounts in a secure mode and not seem to have major problems, yet the VA cannot even allow veterans to have access to any information that pertains to them. It would really be nice to even be able to access the RO and get the status of your claim yourself. Then, those that are answering all those phones with veterans asking for this type of information could then be trained to process claims instead. No personal information would need to be sent via the internet. A veteran could just type in his claim number and would be allowed to have access to the screens that the reps at the VA look at which would basically show the status of your claim. No other information (personal) would be needed on the information accessed.

Also, I don't understand either why they did not include the prescription name to the information you access through HealthVet. If someone, other than the veteran, was able to access another persons HealthVet information, then just a prescription name would be immaterial at that point anyway. But then again, we are talking about the Government and how they work. Can't allow me access to my own information, but can allow an employee to let thousands of veterans personal information to be stolen. Really does make a lot of sense, doesn't it?

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
