VA is establishing a new Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC). The card replaces the former Veterans Identification Card (VIC).
Veterans will be required to provide 2 forms of ID and confirmation of current address before a new VHIC request can be processed.
For VHIC status and approved identity/address documents, stop by our VHIC office located at the Eligibility & Enrollment desk within the Emergency Department, or call 612-467-2509.
Veterans do not need a VHIC/VIC card to access VA health care.
For Veterans who do not have a VIC card and want one for State of Minnesota transportation, the Minneapolis VA Medical Center will issue a temporary ID card to eligible and enrolled service-connected Veterans while the VHIC system is down.
