Many Veterans qualify for cost-free health care services based on a compensable service-connected condition or other qualifying factors.
VA strives to ensure that you have access to all of your needed services wherever you receive your VA health care. This may be on-site during inpatient hospitalization, at one of our primary or specialty care clinics, at a Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC), in a Community Living Center (formerly known as a VA nursing home), or in a residential care facility. However, all services may not be available at every location.

VA Offers Seamless Care for Traveling Veterans or Veterans Seeking Care at an Alternate VA
July 27, 2016
If you are enrolled and receive your health care with VA, you will receive the same, consistent care, whether at your local VA health care facility or an alternate VA health care facility.
In order to help VA ensure you receive consistent care while you are traveling or if you relocate, we ask that you notify your local VA Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT), preferably 4 to 6 weeks prior to departure, or as soon as you are aware. Early planning will allow time for your local PACT and the Traveling Veteran Coordinator to coordinate your care at the alternate VA health care facility. If you are unable to make an appointment to see your PACT or provider in person, you may reach them by telephone or through secure messaging in MyHealtheVet ( www.myhealthevet.va.gov ).
To coordinate your health care with another VA health care facility, you should inform your PACT of the following:
- travel destination(s), and temporary address
- a valid telephone number
- arrival and departure dates
- specific care concerns
Your PACT will contact the Traveling Veteran Coordinator, who will assist in coordinating your care at the alternate VA health care facility.
For more information, contact your PACT or Traveling Veteran Coordinator at your local VA facility.
