What Is The Veterans Choice Program?

What Is The Veterans Choice Program?Only Veterans enrolled for VA health care were mailed a Choice Card. Use of the Choice Card with the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) provides "back-up" care if a Veteran cannot be seen by VA in 30 days or if VA's closest medical facility is challenging to access. In situations like this, Veterans are eligible to receive care outside VA.

Veterans Choice Card

Notice: If you did not receive your Choice Card or have recently moved or otherwise changed your primary residence, please fill out the VA Form 10-10EZR to update your information, contact your Enrollment Coordinator at your nearest VA medical facility, and/or call 1-877-222-VETS (8387).

The VCP supplements other treatment options already available at VA and is designed to improve wait times and access. It does not impact existing VA health care or any other VA benefit – it just offers other options for care when VA can't meet Veteran needs.
