New vets community care program

Jun 10, 2019

Marianas veterans enrolled in VA health care are eligible for the new Veterans Community Care Program, which launched on June 6. Because we do not yet have a full-service VA medical facility in our islands, veterans here qualify for the new program. The new program consolidates all existing VA community health care programs, including the Choice Program, with the goal of improving veteran care. Veterans can still choose to receive VA care or to obtain care from a community provider. And to schedule an appointment with a private doctor veterans can still call TriWest, the former VA Choice Program Administrator in the Pacific. TriWest will then connect the veteran to VA Health staff who will assist the veteran. Additional information on what veterans can expect with the new program is available here.
