The VA Medical Center has a program that allows eligible veterans to continue to receive care even when they are away from the area for extended periods of time.
It’s called the Traveling Veterans Program and it’s one of the many programs explained at a series of town halls being held by the VA.
Marcia Crosson of the VA explains.
Veterans away from their preferred care facility can receive medical care, refill medications or access to prosthetic equipment at a location nearer to where they are staying.
The program started in 2015 and though it’s still being improved, the goal is to make sure veterans can get the care they need wherever they go.
Veterans interested in the program are asked to contact their Traveling Veterans Coordinator located at each VA Medical Center or through their primary care team.
