New Urgent Care Benefits for Veterans at HealthCARE Express
As a veteran run company, it always saddened us to see so few options were available to veterans seeking medical care. Recent changes have opened doors enabling veterans more freedom than ever when seeking healthcare. Under the VA Mission Act, the VA now offers a new urgent care benefit that provides eligible veterans the ability to seek out care in a participating urgent care facility. So, it is with great joy we can announce that HealthCARE Express is a proud member of TriWest veterans’ insurance network!
Our providers at HealthCARE Express treat injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening. We also offer veterans a greater choice and access to timely, high-quality care. No more trying to make an appointment at the nearest VA hospital for something as minor as the common cold! Veterans can just walk into any of our HealthCARE Express location and receive care that day without even having to make an appointment! We offer care for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses, such as the common cold, the flu, ear infections, sore throats, strep throat, and minor skin infections.
When using their urgent care benefit, veterans must go to an urgent care in the VA’s network, and all our HealthCARE Express urgent care locations fall into that category! Upon arriving, veterans must state they are using their VA urgent care benefits when checking in with one of our DOFIs. We will verify the veteran’s eligibility before providing care. Veterans need no prior authorization from the VA to be treated.
We are so proud to be part of this program, so we can give back to the brave men and women in our community that have risked so much to protect this country.
So, from us to all our veterans: THANK YOU!
