VA Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Veterans Health Registry

At the direction of Congress, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) maintains the VA Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Veterans Health Registry that includes information about Veterans who served in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), or Operation New Dawn (OND), who exhibit symptoms associated with TBI and seek care or benefits from the VA.

Veterans in the registry meet any one or a combination of these conditions:
  • Screened positive on the VA TBI Screen
  • Had a TBI related diagnostic code in their VA electronic medical record
  • Applied for benefits for TBI as shown in the VA disability benefit file

From September 2001 through September 2021, a total of 441,639 Veterans have entered the VA TBI Veterans Health Registry.
