The Amarillo VA Health Care System will host a one-hour CHOICE College for Veterans Monday, March 20, 2017, at the Amarillo College West Campus Lecture Hall, 6222 9th Street, from 4:00-5:00pm.
This educational session is designed to clarify how the Veteran Choice program works and how Veteran patients can get services in the more efficient way. Topics covered will include the different Choice programs, what to expect when referred for non-VA care, and what to expect after they see the provider in the community among other topics.
Choice College is open to any Veteran whether they have a Choice appointment now or not. VA staff is working to distribute easy-to-understand, step-by-step information to as many Veterans as possible. Experts will be on hand to answer questions privately as well.
The Veterans Choice Program was enacted by Congress in 2014 through the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act. This Law provides funding for VA to purchase care for Veterans in the local community when it is available. There are several parts to the program and Veterans may qualify for one or more at any given time.
For additional information and more event details, please contact Barbara Moore at 806-356-3737 or via email at Barbara.firstname.lastname@example.org.
