VA Overview

The VA consists of three organizations: Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), and VA National Cemeteries.

Caregiver and veteran needs relate to the VHA and VBA, and the processes and requirements unique to each. VHA provides health care while VBA is responsible for compensation your veteran receives because of service-connected medical conditions and other monetary benefits such as education payments. Keep in mind that these two parts of the VA do not necessarily work together, so you might find yourself acting as a “middleman” by making copies and hand carrying documents between the two.
