When active, Guard and Reserve service members separate from the military, some information is electronically sent from the Department of Defense (DoD) to the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA). Depending on your medical history and dates of service, the VA may have access to your electronic health record.
If you're not eligible for VA medical care, you must carry paper copies of your medical record to your new health care provider.
