DoD/VA Sharing Initiatives

Mandated by Public Law 97-174, the DoD and VA have more than 30 years of health care resource sharing, resulting in more than 200 sharing agreements and ten joint ventures in the United States. DoD/VA resource sharing encompasses a wide range of services such as:

  • Education and training
  • Medical/surgical
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Blind rehabilitation
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Gastroenterology
  • Obstetrics/gynecology
  • Mental health
  • Pharmacy
  • Pathology
  • Physical therapy
  • Physical examinations

Benefiting both DoD and VA beneficiaries, resource sharing minimizes duplication and underuse of health care resources promoting cost-effective use of federal healthcare resources.
