Secondary Authorization Request (SAR) Decision Tool

Current program requirements for the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) and Veterans Choice Program (VCP) can often make it challenging to determine whether or not a Secondary Authorization Request (SAR) is required.

The SAR Decision Support Tool has been developed to assist with decision making based upon a few easy questions, and specific guidance will be displayed according to the inputs.

PLEASE NOTE: this decision tool does not apply to Alaska providers. For information on the Alaska SAR process, please review the Alaska Process Quick Reference Guide and use the associated Alaska VA SAR form, as required
