Message from the Network Director

Good Morning Valued Stakeholders-

 

We are writing to remind you that we are on the eve of the

first major milestone in MISSION Act implementation.

The MISSION Act is landmark legislation, passed in a bipartisan

manner with the strong support of Veterans Service Organizations.

This is a pivotal time for VA. We are strengthening VA health

care and empowering the Veterans we serve with more care options,

and it begins tomorrow, June 6th.

My VISN 12 team and our Medical Centers have worked diligently over

the last few months in preparation for this day.

This week I have visited a different medical center every day,

rounding with Community Care staff, Medical Support Assistants

and Call Center staff. I have been extremely impressed with

their knowledge of the changes coming with the MISSION Act

and engagement in assisting our Veterans with questions.

I have attached additional documents to further inform you

and your staff on the MISSION Act.

1.) MISSION Act VA Health Care Options Brochure. This brochure

was included in the original ZipFile, but would like to note that

this has been mailed to every Veteran enrolled with the VA.

2.) MISSION Act Community Care Booklet. This booklet expands

on the information provided in the Health Care Options brochures.

These booklets will be available at every VA Medical Center by June 21, 2019.

VA- FS Veteran Care Agreements. This fact sheet outlines how a community

provider can establish a Veteran Care Agreement with the VA.

VA-FS Billing and Payment. This fact sheet outlines information

related to co-pays.

Our Medical Centers are anticipating increased call

volume tomorrow and have developed local operating centers

to ensure calls are triaged appropriately.

We have equipped our staff with all of the appropriate training

and information for them to assist all of our customers.

If you receive questions/issues you are unable to address locally,

please feel free to reach out to the Acting VISN 12 Public Affairs Officer,

Kathleen Kennedy. She can be reached by phone at 224-275-5261

or via e-mail at Kathleen.kennedy2@va.gov.

June 6th is just the beginning. VA will continue to

evolve and lead in the months and years to come,

enhancing our care, services, IT systems, and programs

for the benefit of America’s Veterans.

Thank you,

 

Victoria Brahm, MSN, RN, VHA-CM

 

Acting Network Director, VISN 12
