Patient help and resources

Need help? Contact a patient advocate

The Patient Advocacy Program is for all veterans and their families who receive care at Veterans Health Administration (VHA) facilities and clinics.  We want to be sure you have someone to go to with your concerns in a timely manner and to help you receive care.

If you need help getting care or getting your problems resolved, talk to the Patient Advocate at your VA Medical Center. We want to provide you with world-class veteran customer service and this is just one important way in which we do that!

Medical records office

Access your medical records online or request a copy of your records from our Release of Information office. 

The Release of Information Office is located in Building 3, First Floor, Health Administrative Suite. 

Telephone Number: 704-638-9000 ext: 12610 or 12601

Fax number: 704-645-6279

Billing and insurance

Pay your VA Salisbury health care bill online, by phone, mail, or in person. You can also raise issues or address billing disputes.

Any copayments due should be paid upon checking out of the medical center. Copayments may be made at the Agent Cashier Office, in Building 3, Room 1034.

If Veterans are required to pay a copayment for services they receive at the facility, they will also be required to pay a copayment for services they receive on Fee Basis status.

Veterans who do not make their copayments upon checking out will receive a bill at their address of record within 30 days after their stay or appointment.

If you have any questions about your copay balance, please contact our Customer Service at 866-290-9438 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday - Friday.
