BELLEVUE, Wash. – After an extensive evaluation process, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) selected T-Mobile as its primary wireless provider. This extends T-Mobile's collaboration with the VA another nine years.

The VA operates the largest integrated healthcare system in the country and provides millions of veterans with access to health care.

Health care providers and support staff across all VA hospitals and the veterans they serve, plus government and business organizations that work with the VA.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs selected T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) as its primary wireless provider, recommitting to expanding healthcare for veterans across the country.

As part of the agreement, T-Mobile will deploy an estimated 50,000 wireless lines for VA healthcare professionals — including doctors, nurses, social workers and crisis hotline staff — so they can stay connected to the millions of veterans they serve. The contract also includes T-Mobile 5G Internet (Fixed Wireless Access) for broadband at the VA's Community-Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs), which provide primary and mental health care in rural areas.

As the VA's primary wireless provider, T-Mobile will be the link between VA healthcare providers and veterans — enabling critical medical support like telehealth visits and remote patient monitoring. Telehealth visits are utilized by one-third of all veterans who rely on the VA for medical care. And connected medical devices, such as remote patient monitors, aid in treating, monitoring, and diagnosing certain conditions.

T-Mobile has worked with the VA since 2018 to keep millions of veterans connected to health care resources. Looking to the future, T-Mobile and the VA will continue working together to implement emerging technologies, like the custom 5G network T-Mobile deployed for the Miami Veterans Affairs Healthcare System.
