If you are already enrolled in VA health care, you may be able to receive care within your community, instead of waiting for a VA appointment or traveling to a VA facility.
If you answered “yes” to any of the below questions, you are ready for the next step.
Have you been told by your local VA medical facility that they can’t schedule your appointment within 30 days of the clinically indicated date or if no such date can be determined, your preferred date?
Is your current residence more than 40 miles from the closest VA medical facility with a full-time primary care physician?
Do you need to travel by air, boat or ferry to the VA medical facility closest to your home?
Are you faced with an excessive burden due to traveling to the closest VA medical facility based on geographic challenges, environmental factors, or a medical condition?
