VA Emergency Care 72 Hour Contact Information

Posted By: Veterans Service,

Veterans using the VA Health Care system as their healthcare provider.  If you need to receive emergency care while traveling or away from a VA clinic you should now call the centralized system at 1-844-724-7842 or [email protected] within 72 hours of going to the emergency room.  This policy is different from the previous 72 hour notice policy in that this is a centralized system regardless of where the Veteran is at or the clinic they normally see.  The call can be made by the Veteran, emergency room provider, the Veteran’s representative, or their family member.
