Fifteen percent of veterans do not have an internet connection, limiting their access to Department of Veterans Affairs video telehealth services. But no longer. The VA’s new Digital Divide Consult has geared up to help over 12,000 eligible veterans so far.
If you’re a veteran living in a rural area, have limited broadband service, don’t have a device with video, have a serious medical condition or are in temporary housing, you can get help with internet access and devices.

If you’re part of a HUD-VA program, you can receive a smartphone to reach telehealth.
