  • What can veterans living abroad do about medicines needed from the Veterans Affairs?

    Continue to do the same thing you were doing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The VA hospital will mail your prescriptions to your place of residence. VA Hospital providers cannot travel to Mexico to provide physical care because they are not licensed to work in Mexico. Call your healthcare provider before going to the VA hospital for further assistance on how to proceed.

  • Will telehealth be made available to veterans living in Mexico?

    Yes, telehealth is available to veterans living in Mexico depending if they have the technological capabilities. The VA healthcare personnel are not licensed in Mexico, however, they can prescribe something to be picked up locally.
