Veterans Affairs Urgent Care Benefit Now Available at Urgent Team Family of Centers

 

(NASHVILLE, TN) June 6, 2019 – All of the Urgent Team Family of Centers – Sherwood Urgent Care, Urgent Team, Physicians Care and Baptist Health Urgent Care – are now Authorized VA Urgent Care Providers as part of the VA MISSION Act.

Passed by Congress last year, this act allows eligible veterans to visit participating urgent care centers for their urgent care needs without pre-authorization or an appointment.

“Getting veterans the care they need – when they need it – is critically important to improving the American healthcare system," said Tom Dent, Urgent Team CEO and chairman. "With more than nine million veterans enrolled in the VA’s healthcare, they deserve access to timely, quality care and the Urgent Team Family of Centers is committed to helping enable this new path of convenient care for those who served our country.”

Veterans can learn more about the program and eligibility by visiting MissionAct.Va.Gov.
