The Project HERO medical contract ended March 31, 2013. The dental contract closed September 30, 2012.
Medical care may have been authorized for up to 90 days after March 31, 2013. After that point, all eligible Veterans will continue to receive medical care through your local VA facilities. If your facility is not able to provide the medical care you need, your facility will continue to have the option to refer them for medical care in the community via sharing agreements, contract care options, or Non-VA Medical Care (Fee).
If you have any questions about your care, please contact your local VA Medical Center.
Thank you for participating in the Project HERO pilot program. The program helped us identify best practices for purchasing care from the community, which will inform future contracting efforts.
