Secondary Authorization Request (SAR)/Request for Services (RFS) Decision Tool

Depending upon your location, you may need to submit a Secondary Authorization Request (SAR) or a Request for Services (RFS). To see a matrix that shows each VA Medical Center (VAMC) requirements, please view our SAR/RFS Matrix tool.

Current program requirements for the Community Care program can make it challenging to determine whether or not a Secondary Authorization Request (SAR) or a Request for Services (RFS) is required.

The SAR/RFS Decision Support Tool has been developed to assist with decision making based on a few easy questions. Specific guidance will be displayed according to the inputs provided.
