How does the VA Community Care Program work?
The VA provides health care for Veterans from providers in your local community outside of VA. Veterans may be eligible to receive care from a community provider when the VA cannot provide the care needed.
Can Veterans go to any doctor they want?
Veterans who can prove they must drive for at least 30 minutes to a Department of Veterans Affairs facility will be allowed to seek primary care and mental health services outside the department's system. Current law lets veterans use a private health care provider if they must travel 40 miles or more top a VA clinic (January 30, 2019)
How do I contact VA Community Care?
Community Care Contact Center: 844-839-6120
Can a Veteran use Urgent Care?
VA offers urgent care services to eligible Veterans at VA medical facilities or at in-network urgent care such as TVC which is closer to home. Use VA's urgent care benefit to treat minor injuries and illnesses that are not life-threatening, such as colds, strep throat, sprained muscles, and skin and ear infections, etc.
Can Veterans go to Urgent Care for free?
As of June 5, 2019 a new VA urgent care program will let veterans enrolled in the VA healthcare system to visit a civilian urgent care provider for free without an appointment.
