Because We are Proud to Serve YOU!

Program Information


  • The Choice Program does not impact your existing VA health care or any other VA benefit

  • If you are satisfied with your wait time at the VA facility and wish to continue waiting for VA care, there is nothing you need to do at this time.

  • Non-VA care is only covered by VA for medical needs which have been approved by your VA physician. We can happily schedule an appointment for other medical needs, but we can only cover the cost for care related to your VA-approved health needs.

  • The Veteran Choice Program is part of the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 (VACAA).

Eligibility for Veterans Choice Program


  • You have been told by your local VA medical facility that you will need to wait more than 30 days from your preferred date or the date medically determined by your physician.

  • Your current residence is more than 40 miles from the closest VA health care facility.

  • You need to travel by plane or boat to the VA medical facility closest to your home.

  • You face a geographic challenge, such as extensive distances  which presents a significant travel hardship.
