New Urgent Care Benefit to our Veterans
June 25, 2019
OCMC has signed up with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and their community partner, Tri West Healthcare, to be part of the Urgent Care retail health clinic network developed to serve the needs of Veterans.
Through the VA Mission Act, the implementation of which began on June 6, 2019, VA is providing a new urgent care/walk-in care benefit to Veterans who are enrolled in VA's health care system. With this added benefit, Veterans may access urgent care facilities/walk-in retail health clinics in their community through VA's community care network. Veterans will now have the option to receive non-emergency care quickly and conveniently, without pre-authorization.
We are excited about this new urgent care benefit to our Veterans.
