If you're receiving VA health care, you should be getting a new VA ID card........

Veterans Health Identification Card - Health Benefits

What to do if you do not receive your new VHIC
You should receive your VHIC within 7 to 10 days after you request a VHIC card. Although we strive to do all we can to ensure we enroll Veterans in a timely manner, sometimes we are unable to either verify your military service or we need additional information from you. If so, we will try to contact you to get the information we need to complete your enrollment application. If we are unable to reach you, we encourage you to contact the local VA facility where the card was requested or contact us at 1-877-222-VETS (8387) to complete your application and find out the status of your card.

What to do with your old VIC
VA wants all enrolled Veterans to have a Veteran Health Identification Card that protects their personal information. Until Veterans receive the new, more secure VHIC, Veterans are encouraged to safeguard their old VIC, just like they would a credit card, to prevent unauthorized access to their identity information. Once the new VHIC is received, Veterans should destroy their old VIC by cutting it up or shredding it.
