Women Veterans

Women who have served in the Armed Forces are eligible for a variety of veterans benefits. VA actively encourages women to utilize the benefits due them.

The Tuscaloosa VAMC Women's Health Program targets programs and facilities to meet the unique needs of female veterans.

Services Offered

Tuscaloosa VAMC services for women include —

  • gynecology services
  • breast exams and mammography
  • reproductive health care
  • menopause treatment

Patients will be referred to other VA facilities or to the community for any service not available at Tuscaloosa VAMC.

Mental health services, including treatment for post traumatic stress disorder, are also available for women. Treatment for substance abuse is available as well.

For Women Veterans, VA is Here

VA welcomes women Veterans. We are committed to providing high-quality services in a sensitive and safe environment at all VA facilities. Women Veteran Program Managers are available at each VA medical center to assist women Veterans with questions and coordinate services (see contact information on this page).

Each woman Veteran is assigned a Women’s Health Primary Care Provider. These experienced providers are trained to deliver comprehensive primary care, as well as routine women’s health care. You will be at the center of a Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) where a provider, nurse, and others will work with you to manage your health care:

  • Primary care: general medical care for acute and chronic conditions, such as chronic pain, high blood pressure, and diabetes
  • Preventive care: immunizations and cancer screenings (breast and cervical), osteoporosis screening and management
  • Gender-specific care
  • Birth control, family planning, and preconception counseling
