The VA implemented the MISSION Act on June 6.

One of the provisions of the law established a new urgent care benefit that allows eligible veterans access to urgent and walk-in care at participating clinics in their communities.

“Providing access to urgent care in the community helps us keep our promise to provide care when and where it is needed,” said Medical Center Director Fernando O. Rivera. “It’s a part of the complete array of health care choices VA offers to Veterans.”

This urgent care benefit is meant to give veterans a convenient way to get treatment for minor injuries and illnesses such as colds, strep throat, and pink eye. Eligible veterans must be enrolled in the VA health care system and have received care through VA from either a VA or community provider within the past 24 months.
