VA Community Care Network

VA CCN is a program assisting Veterans who cannot get necessary services from a VA provider because services may not be available or the VA provider is too far away.

What Are The Pros?

  • Streamlined Eligibility
  • Single Community Care Program
  • Better Customer Service
  • New Urgent Care Benefit
  • With an authorization from VA Community Care Network, you may be able to see our providers for your VA related issues as well as your primary care needs.
  • Schedule an Appointment

    1. To schedule an appointment, contact your registered VA Medical Center and explain to the operator, “I would like to obtain medical services outside of the VA system.”

    2. Also, let them know which services you need (medical or dental). Your VA representative will explain your CCN eligibility over the phone.

    3. If you are approved, the VA will work with Bedford Family Health Center to schedule you an appointment on your behalf! You will not be permitted to be seen by our providers, using this program, without an authorization from the VA Community Care Network.
