Aleda E. Lutz VA Provides Additional Information On Urgent Care Benefit for Veterans

Veterans have a new option for care under the MISSION Act for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses by utilizing Urgent Care in the community.

Although this benefit is new to Veterans, Veterans may still seek treatment through their Primary Care Team, of which the VA offers same-day services during normal business hours, Monday through Friday.

When seeking Community Urgent Care services, a flu shot is covered, however, other vaccines and preventative care services are not. It is important to understand, Urgent Care is not a replacement for VA Primary Care. If you receive services not covered under the urgent care benefit, you may be required to pay the full cost of the care.
