Billings Clinic to participate in direct agreement with the VA

Project ARCH veterans continue to receive care closer to home

Billings, MT— Billings Clinic has signed a direct agreement with the Veteran’s Administration (VA) authorized under the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 (the Choice Act).  As the Project ARCH pilot program comes to an end next month, Veterans enrolled in the program will be able to continue receiving care closer to home. Taking advantage of options available under the Choice Act, such as the “unusual or excessive burden provision” and Provider Agreements, Veterans receiving care under Project ARCH will continue care without interruption when the pilot program ends August 7. 

In addition to enabling ARCH-eligible veterans to continue their care closer to home, the direct agreement with the VA authorizes Billings Clinic to accept authorizations from any VA across the nation.  Veterans who meet the eligibility criteria of traveling distance to a VA facility and/or the access to medical services in a timely fashion may also be authorized to receive care at Billings Clinic. 

Veterans interested in learning more about their eligibility to seek services in their community under the Act are encouraged to talk with their provider about options for care in their own community.
