VA’s community care improvements set for June 6
With urgent care, Veterans have a new option for care for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses, such as colds, sore throats, and minor skin infections. The benefit is offered in addition to the opportunity to receive care from a VA provider, as VA also offers same-day services.
Eligible Veterans will be able to receive urgent care from an urgent care provider that is part of VA’s contracted network of community providers without prior authorization from VA. VA can pay for an urgent care claim only if:
The Veteran is eligible for the benefit. Veterans can call 1-833-4VETNOW (1-833-483-8669) to verify eligibility for this benefit;
The urgent care provider is part of VA’s contracted network of community providers (https://vaurgentcarelocator.triwest.com/ ); and
The services are not excluded under the benefit (excluded services include preventive services and dental services).
