United States Department of Veterans Affairs

Welcome Provider

In an effort to better communicate with our medical and health care providers, Chief Business Office Purchased Care (CBOPC) has established this provider Web site.

It is our intention to better convey information that will answer your questions and enable efficient and timely claims processing for all of the health plans we administer, including the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA), the Spina Bifida program, the Children of Women Vietnam Veterans (CWVV) program, the Foreign Medical Program (FMP).

You will find up-to-date information and important forms and advice on this site, and we encourage you to check back frequently. Purchased Care verifies eligibility for benefits, authorizes benefits and services and handles vendor certification, approval and payment methodologies for all of our health care programs.

CHAMPVA, our largest health benefits program, was established in 1973 for dependents of permanently and totally disabled Veterans, survivors of Veterans who died from service-connected conditions or who, at the time of death, were rated permanently and totally disabled from a service-connected condition. Under CHAMPVA, costs of medical services and supplies are shared with eligible beneficiaries.

The Spina Bifida Health Care Program provides comprehensive health care benefits to birth children of veterans of certain service in Korea and/or Vietnam who have filed for benefits with the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) and been found to have spina bifida.

The CWVV Health Care Program provides health care benefits to birth children of women Vietnam veterans who have filed for benefits with the VBA and been found to have a covered condition.

The Foreign Medical Program (FMP) is a health care benefit designed for Veterans with service-connected disabilities who are residing or traveling abroad.
