The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in collaboration with the Virgin Islands Office of Veterans Affairs will be hosting Physician Town Hall meetings in the territory.
For quite some time local providers have been experiencing issues pertaining to the
providing of services for our local Veterans. Some topics scheduled to be discussed are:
reimbursement rate, timeliness of reimbursements, reimbursements process, difficulties of
procuring permission for certain tests/labs/radiological study, future of medical care via the new VA Mission Act
This is an opportunity for those community healthcare providers to be able to directly address those concerns with the leadership of the VA Caribbean Healthcare Services. In addition, this is another effort to reduce and eventually eliminate Veterans having to travel to Puerto Rico
for routine medical services which can be rendered locally.
“To make this a reality we are inviting community healthcare providers to be a part of this conversation. This will help you to understand the process and also allow you input on how
things can be done better ”, said Director Farrell.
