About VA Community Care

What is the VACommunity Care?

The VA Community Care Network (CCN) is a program established by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to ensure that eligible Veterans receive timely, high-quality healthcare services from community providers when the VA cannot provide the necessary care. It serves as a direct link between the VA and community healthcare providers to expand access to care for Veterans.

Under the CCN, eligible Veterans may receive care from approved community providers based on certain conditions and eligibility requirements. The VA typically authorizes these services before a Veteran can receive care from a community provider. The goal is to provide Veterans with greater flexibility and access to healthcare services that meet their needs and circumstances.

The CCN program helps Veterans receive the healthcare services they require, whether for primary care, specialty care, mental health services, or other medical needs, by partnering with a network of community healthcare providers.
