VA Choice Program

The VA Choice Program allows veterans enrolled in VA healthcare to receive care in their communities. If enrolled in VA healthcare a veteran may be eligible for care in a Northwest Health Services Clinic.

The program helps to minimize barriers to care for our Veterans. A few ways a Veteran can be eligible for care in their local community is:

They have or will be waiting for more than 30 days for VA medical care
They are more than 40 miles away from a VA facility
They have an excessive travel burden, such as, a physical condition, environmental or geographic burden for travel.

Veterans or representatives on behalf of a Veteran can call the Choice Program Call Center for eligibility, coverage and insurance questions at (866) 606-8198 or visit the Choice Program’s website at
