New VA Benefit Urgent Care 2019

2 min read

In this video, we are going to get the basics of the NEW VA BENEFITS URGENT CARE program. The URGENT CARE BENEFIT gives VETERANS the ability to select doctors of their choice to receive timely, high-quality medical care.

In this video, I will answer these questions.
What is urgent care?
Am I eligible for urgent care?
What medical services can I get with urgent care?
How does VA pay my service provider?

You will receive available services without prior approval from the VA. But make sure you’re eligible. Community providers are part of a community network contracted with the VA. These medical providers provide urgent care to veterans and the VA and are reimbursed by the VA. Check with the VA.

What medical services can I get with urgent care?
An excellent question. Urgent care is when you go to your local doctor to treat everyday akes and ailments. For example, nonlife-threatening ailments like sore throat cough the flu. Also, care you would receive in your local hospital for conditions you think to justify emergency care. Make sure your primary doctor is signed up with the VA to provided this VA service.

Here’s an elegant feature, VA will pay for scheduled visits to your health care provider. At least one-way. This really benefits veterans in rural areas.

Check with the VA for participating doctors in your area.

How does VA pay my service provider?
This gets real, complicated real fast. If you’re an eligible veteran, you may be charged a VA co-pay for urgent care. Just like other VA programs, you get assigned a “priority group.” This is really too complicated for me to explain the details in this video. Please visit your VA ADVISOR to explain the details.

In closing
My purpose for the video is to provide you with some necessary information about this new VA benefit. As always visit with your local VA ADVISOR to understand how this new program will work for you. Thanks for watching!
