Change for DVA cardholders

Change for DVA cardholders

There are recent changes to the Department of Veterans Affairs' (DVA) Gold, White and Orange Health Cards.

Throughout June 2014, DVA Gold, White and Orange Health Cards will be reissued to all eligible DVA persons. The new cards enable eligible persons to continue to access DVA funded health care services.

The changes to the new cards are:
  • the title on all of the cards is now, DVA Health Card
  • the front of the card has the 100 years centenary of the ANZAC logo on a background of a field of poppies
  • the DVA security hologram has moved to the front of the card providing greater visibility of this security feature
  • the signature stripe on the back of the card is longer, allowing more room for a signature
  • the magnetic stripe for a Gold Card is now gold, on the White Card this is now blue, while the Orange Card retains a black stripe
  • the cards are valid for six years now, instead of the previous four years
