VA and ATLAS

An Important Message About ATLAS Sites and the Coronavirus (COVID-19):
To protect Veterans from COVID-19 and to help stop the spread of the virus, clinical services at ATLAS sites are temporarily suspended until further notice. ATLAS sites will resume care to Veterans as soon as the risks related to COVID-19 subside.

Veterans who have an internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer are encouraged to have video appointments from home using VA Video Connect. For those who do not have the bandwidth or technology, you may access care from home via a telephone appointment. To schedule a VA appointment, call your preferred VA health facility. Find your VA health facility's phone number.

For more information about COVID-19 and how VA is responding, visit our Coronavirus FAQs page or read VA's public health response.

VA Video Appointments at ATLAS Sites

ATLAS sites provide free, internet broadband access for Veterans to connect to VA providers by video. During ATLAS appointments, Veterans meet with VA providers through VA Video Connect, VA’s secure videoconferencing software. In FY 2019, Veterans had over 294,000 total appointments through VA Video Connect, which is a 235% increase from FY 2018.

Clinical Services Offered at ATLAS Sites

ATLAS sites are open to all Veterans that are eligible to receive care through the VA health care system. The local VA facility that is associated with the ATLAS site determines which clinical services the site offers. Clinical services offered by video may include primary care, mental health counseling, clinical pharmacy, nutrition services, social work, and more.

What to Expect at an ATLAS Appointment

Once Veterans arrive at an ATLAS site, they will be greeted by an on-site attendant who will guide them to the appointment room and help them check in to their appointment. The attendant can also help Veterans troubleshoot basic technical issues. However, the attendants are not VA employees and will not be present once the appointment begins, nor have access to Veterans’ medical or personal information.
