Community Care Resources

Eligibility

A veteran’s eligibility for community care depends on his/her individual health care needs or circumstances. Veterans must receive approval from VA prior to obtaining care from a community provider, in most circumstances.

Learn more about eligibility at www.va.gov/COMMUNITYCARE/programs/veterans/General_Care.asp.

Urgent Care

VA offers urgent care services to eligible veterans at VA medical facilities or at in network urgent care clinics 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.

Learn more about urgent care at www.va.gov/COMMUNITYCARE/programs/veterans/Urgent_Care.asp.

The notification processes for emergency and inpatient care in the community changed as of June 8, 2020. All notifications of Veterans seeking emergency/inpatient care in the community will be reported to a centralized call center.
