If you’re a veteran and are need of healthcare, you may want to visit a clinic that’s associated with Veterans Affairs (the VA). Physicians Now Urgent Care is one of these clinics. We have partnered with Veterans Affairs to provide veterans services under the MISSION Act. This means we can provide many veterans services that may be covered by the VA. Contact us or keep reading to learn more about our veteran’s healthcare services at Physicians Now.
What is the MISSION Act for veterans?
The MISSION Act for veterans was passed in 2019. In general, the act gives veterans more options for healthcare. This is because the act strengthened the VA’s ability to provide care through community-based healthcare providers like Physicians Now Urgent Care. As a result, these providers can offer more healthcare options to many veterans. There are many veterans who are eligible for the benefit.
Physicians Now Urgent Care can provide for many eligible veterans. We offer many services under the MISSION Act, and since we’re an urgent care clinic, many of these services are available on a walk-in basis. Also, eligible veterans may be able to receive VA coverage for many of these services. The services are for common health conditions, like minor illnesses and minor injuries.
What type of care is provided to veterans?
Under the MISSION Act, eligible veterans can receive urgent care services with VA coverage. These services may include treatments for minor injuries and minor illnesses, as well as common diagnostic services. Some of these services may include:
- Common cold treatment
- Strep throat treatment
- Sprained muscle care
- Skin infection treatment
- Ear infection treatment
- X-rays for certain illnesses and injuries
- Lab testing for certain illnesses
- Some medications
- And more
After you receive the service or services you need, you may need to pay a VA copayment. This copayment is billed separately by the VA, and your copayment may depend on your assigned priority group. Please contact our clinic to learn more about VA coverage and our veteran’s services.
Who can qualify for the benefit?
You may be able to qualify for the benefit if you are enrolled in the VA healthcare system and you have received care through the VA from either a VA provider or a community provider. A community provider can be an urgent care clinic like ours. The care must have been provided within the past 24 months. Please contact us at Physicians Now Urgent Care to learn more about eligibility. We would be happy to help you determine your eligibility for the benefit.
