I got my rating in December, and I'm lost about how to get an acutal appointment for my condition. I guess I waited for the VA to send me something else, but obviously it never came. I guess I supposed the VA would send me a card or something. I also spent a good while searching through Ebenefits for away to get an appointment, but couldn't find anything.

Tried to get level 2 MyhealtheVet account, but it looks like it takes an act of congress...

I stumbled on this last week, https://www.1010ez.m...sec/vha/1010ez/ , so I took the time to fill it all out.

Am I on the right track?

VBA and VHA are different. You are on the right track for appt. 10 10 Ez is app for medical treatment. 526 is for compensation and/or pension. If this is what you were asking?

Yep, that looks to be what I'm looking for. Any clue how long it takes them to process you in?

I would just go to my closest VAMC with a copy of my DD214, the rating decision
and my ID.
Go to eligibility and let them get you started and make your ID card.

Again, epic advice! Should have thought of this myself, but I'm glad I got the input. Went down today and got everything verified, and they even set my MyHeatheVet account up for me. Got my initial appointment with me PCP Friday :)
