VA Centralizes Emergency Care Notification
For CFOs, reimbursement staff

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has established a national emergency care contact center to simplify the emergency care notification process. The Community Care Centralized Notification Center is the mechanism by which community providers must now notify the VA of a veteran presenting at an emergency facility.

It offers simplified access to the VA for care coordination, eligibility determination, and payment authorization information. 

Community providers should promptly notify the VA of a veteran presenting for emergent care at their facility by emailing VHAEmergencyNotification@va.gov or calling (844) 724-7842. Case-specific details will be requested during notification for care coordination and eligibility determinations. Providers are encouraged to utilize VA Form 10-10143g for reporting case-specific information.  

More information is available at the VA website.
