Veterans Health Identification Card

August 17, 2017

The Veteran Health Identification Card (VHIC) provides:

+ Increased security for your personal information – no personally identifiable information is contained on the magnetic stripe or barcode.

+ Unique Member Identifier — Department of Defense assigns an electronic data interchange personal identifier (EDIPI) that allows VA to retrieve the Veteran’s health record.

+ A salute to your military service – The emblem of your latest branch of service is displayed on your card. Several special awards will also be listed.

+ Accessibility – Braille “VA” helps visually impaired Veterans to recognize and use the card

+ Anti-Counterfeiting – Microtext helps prevent reproductions

The VHIC is issued only to Veterans who are enrolled in the VA health care system.
