The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) began offering urgent care and retail walk-in services to eligible Veterans on June 6, 2019, as part of the VA MISSION Act.
The benefit, which is the first of its kind from VA, is open access, allowing Veterans to receive urgent care within VA’s community care network without prior authorization. Urgent care providers and retail location clinics must first join the TriWest Healthcare Alliance provider network before treating Veterans under this benefit. To join the TriWest network of urgent care providers, email TriWest at email@example.com.

TriWest has developed a free, live webinar on this new benefit. The webinar offers urgent care providers a better understanding of the program. Whether you are considering joining the network, or have already joined, this training will help you better understand VA urgent care processes.
