Am I Eligible?
If you are already enrolled in VA health care, you may be able to receive care from non-VA facilities, instead of waiting for a VA appointment or traveling to a VA facility.
You are eligible if any of these situations apply to you:
You have been (or will be) waiting more than 30 days for VA medical care You live more than 40 miles away from a VA medical care facility or face one of several excessive travel burdens.
If you know a vet whose is more than a 40 mile drive from the nearest VA facility, share this information from the Veterans Administration with them. They MIGHT have other options.
