Using this pro- gram does NOT impact your existing VA health care; or any other VA benefit. On April 19, 2017, President Trump signed a law that removes the Au- gust. 7, 2017, expiration date and allows VA to utilize funding dedicated tothe Veterans Choice Program (VCP) until it is exhausted. The VCP is a critical program that increases access to care for Veterans by authoriz- ing millions of appointments for Veterans in the cbmmunity. Am I Eligible? You are eligible if any of these situations apply to you: (1) Have you been told by your local VA medical facility that they can't schedule your appointment within 30 days of the clinically indicated date or if no such date can be determined, your preferred date? (2) Is your cur- rent residence more than 40 miles from the closest VA medical facility? (3) Do you need to travel by air, boat or ferry to the VA medical facility closest to your home? (4) Are you faced with an excessive burden due to traveling to the closest VA medical facility based on geographic chal- lenges, environmental factors, a medical or other specific factors as de- termined by your clinician? YES: If you were are enrolled in VA Health Care on or before August 1, 2014 or you are eligible to enroll as a combat Veteran, and answered "yes" to any of the questions above, you may be eligible. Veterans that are eligible for the Choice Program based on the 40 mile role and are requesting Primary Care via Choice should call 1-866-517- 9363 to initiate care. This means that if you want to see your civilian doc- tor as your Primary Care Provider (PCP), you must use the special phone number to schedule those appointments. At that time you will no longer have a Primary Care Provider (PCP) at a VA facility. Veterans can only have one PCP either the VA or in the community; they cannot have both. When in doubt, just tell everyone what's happening with your health care, and the people in charge will sort it all out. Fortunately, we in Walsh County have a VA facility in our community of Griffon. The Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) is a won- derful local option for eligible veterans. In the event veterans need spe- cialty care that the Grafton CBOC cannot provide and are unable to travel outside the county, this is where the Choice program comes into play. The Veteran Choice Program is part of the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 (VACAA). If you have any questions or would like information, please call the Walsh County Veterans Service Office'or your VA Primary Care Provider. Thank you for your service.
