From the Federal VA:
The Veterans Identification Card Act 2015 (Public Law 114-31). Currently, the program is run out of the VA Secretary’s Office in DC. VA is working towards getting the new Veteran ID Card program up and running by November 2017. The Veteran ID Card (VIC) is not intended interfere with the VA health care mission as the target audience for the VIC are individuals that do not have a Veteran Health Identification Card or a retirement card issued from DoD. The process for requesting a VA ID Card will be online so Veterans will not need to visit a VA Medical Center or Regional Office to submit a request or pick up the card. Veterans will use vets.gov to initiate a request and upload required documentation. If eligible, their Veteran ID Card will be mailed directly to them.
Veterans who are enrolled in VA healthcare may already use their registration cards to confirm their Veteran status. More information on VA ID Cards for VA Health Care is available at: http://www.va.gov/healthbenefits/vhic/index.asp
