HURRICANE RELIEF FOR VETS

September 13, 2017

 

VA Secretary Dr. David Shulkin has directed VA staff to break down barriers and eliminate any red tape to ensure that Veterans evacuating due to Hurricane Irma receive seamless care at any VA health care facility throughout the nation, especially the Southeast.

 

VA facilities have been directed to engage their Traveling Veterans Coordinator to ensure that systems are in place so that all Veterans impacted by evacuations associated with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are able to obtain care at any VA facility where they may seek it. Veterans will be offered mental health, homeless services, and health care through our medical centers, clinics, and mobile medical units as needed.

 

If you are a Veteran from a storm-affected areas and require immediate assistance, contact the Health Resource Center Disaster Hotline at 1-800-507-4571.
