Attention Veterans – New Ruling Effective July 29, 2013 on your access to Department of Veterans Affairs Records

Federal Register, Volume 78 Issue 145 (Monday, July 29, 2013).

Note from:  Administrator

Effective Monday, July 29, 2013, Veterans will be able to access VA records previously withheld.  Until now, VA personnel have had the final say on whether or not you, the patient, had access to certain VA medical files.

The problem with withholding access from these files is the fact that if there is an error in your file, you have absolutely no way of correcting due to the fact that you were unable to view the records.

Those days are over.  Your records are now an open book to YOU!
