Provider Overview

Community providers are a vital part of VA’s high-performing health care network; making sure Veterans who have served our country and their families get the timely, high-quality health care they need. Thank you for partnering with VA!

Learn about VA’s new Community Care Network (CCN)

With community care, Veterans and their family members (dependents) can receive care from a local provider in their community depending on specific eligibility requirements, their medical needs and circumstances, care available at VA, and other factors. Find out how you can serve Veterans and their families below.
