DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs)
The DVA has some very special arrangements for Veterans.
- Those arrangements include a Medicare Card, which every Australian is entitled to.
- Every Veteran is entitled to receive a White DVA Card.
The White DVA Card is critically important in the whole scheme of things.
The White DVA Card entitles the Veteran to non-liability health care for a wide range of service and non-service related conditions – which specifically includes non-liability health care for all mental health conditions.
The White DVA Card can expedite a Veteran’s access to care.
- The Orange DVA is issued to some Veterans and also entitles them to increased access to care.
- .The DVA Gold Card entitles the Veteran to lifelong improved access to care – particularly as it relates to conditions the department has approved.
If you would like to know about the DVA’s services, improved access to mental health care, advocates or improved access to health care generally, please let us know.
