Infertility Services - IVF

Question

I separated from the military in 2005 and had a vasectomy done in 2008.  I'm currently 100% PTD.  I've been trying to find info on how to use the VA's infertility services, but the only thing I can come up with is that I need to contact the urologist and schedule an appointment to see if I'm eligible.  Does anyone know how this process works?

Talk with your VA primary care doctor. Ask them to put in a referral to the VA urology clinic. Here in Birmingham, that clinic is probably one of the busiest clinics in the facility. They don't have clinic every day though. Don't expect the VA to get you scheduled too quickly. If it might take a while to get you scheduled, you can always ask if they will use the Mission Act and refer you to a non-VA specialist. I did this and the doc had a whole lot more experience. Keep in mind the VA uses resident docs in their specialty clinics. Up to you though.
