Transportation to VA Medical Appointments

Wisconsin veterans may use one of two programs that assist veterans who need help getting to VA medical appointments.  The Wisconsin Department of Disabled American Veterans operates several vans around the state that normally stop at predetermined locations and then transport to the various medical centers.  For a list of the current scheduled stops, please see the Wisconsin DAV website.

Veterans can schedule a stop by contacting the DAV Transportation Coordinator listed with the schedule.  These rides are free of charge and available to all veterans based on financial need -- you do not have to be disabled or belong to the DAV to get a ride on this network.  Veterans should contact the DAV for additional information.

For veterans who live in locations not served by the DAV van, most counties provide some type of assistance.  Some counties provide this service free of charge, and others require a small fee or donation.  Veterans can request to have this fee waived in most cases if they are experiencing financial hardship.  County transportation systems are run by the County Veterans Service Office (CVSO) or another County agency.  Veterans should contact their CVSO for information.

Veterans in need of assistance with transportation to a VA medical appointment should contact the appropriate agency as soon as notification of a scheduled VA appointment has been received.  Requests for same day or next day travel may not be able to be accommodated.

VA Online Benefits Portal:  (800) 827-1000 - Benefits are paid to veterans who have injuries or diseases that occurred while on active duty or were made worse by active military service.  Benefits are also paid to certain veterans disabled from VA health care.  These benefits are tax-free.  Vocational Rehab is also available.
