Verizon announced June 27 that it will provide its customers who are veterans free access to the Department of Veterans Affairs VA Video Connect telehealth application. 

The VA telehealth app can be accessed by smartphone or tablet and uses the device's camera to connect veterans with their VA providers for virtual appointments. Through the new partnership, veterans will be able to use the app wherever Verizon's 4G-network coverage extends.

"Availability to the VA's telehealth app for streaming live video sessions between patients and healthcare providers is just another testament to our shared journey to fully integrated, seamless access to healthcare for our veterans, no matter where they live," VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said in a news release.
