IMAC Regeneration Centers Veteran’s Benefits
Ozzie Smith IMAC Regeneration Center is proud to offer chiropractic care to our Veterans through the VA Community Care program. As a Veteran, you may be eligible to receive care covered by the VA. Chiropractic Care is included in the Medical Benefits Package, the standard health benefits plan generally available to all enrolled Veterans.
If you have VA insurance and feel chiropractic care may be of benefit to you, please reach out to your VA Primary Care Physician and ask for a consult. If Community Care is an option for you, we would love to be your provider and help you get out of pain, feel healthy and strong! You will need to give them our name Ozzie Smith Center –as well as our old name Advantage Hand Therapy and Orthopedic Rehabilitation Center- and the NPI number 201429946 to make sure they send the referral directly to us. We will call you to set up your first appointment as soon as we receive it!
How the VA Community Care Program Works
The VA Community Care Program is one of several programs through which you can receive care from a community provider, paid for by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For example, if you need an appointment for chiropractic care, and VA cannot provide the care in a timely manner or the nearest VA medical facility is too far away or too difficult to get to, then you may be eligible for care through the VA Community Care Program.
To use the Community Care Program, Veterans must receive prior authorization from VA to receive care from a provider at Ozzie Smith IMAC Regeneration Center. The authorization is based on specific eligibility requirements and discussions with your VA provider.
How the VA Determines Eligibility
You may be eligible to receive care through the VA Community Care Program based on one or more of the following conditions:
- VA can’t provide the services you need
- VA can’t make an appointment for you at the nearest VA medical facility within 30 days of the date you and your VA provider agree should be the next date you should be seen for care
- You live more than 60 miles (driving distance) from the nearest VA medical facility that offers chiropractic care
- You face an excessive burden in traveling to the nearest VA medical facility (such as geographic challenges, environmental factors, or a health problem that makes it hard for you to travel)
VA will work with you to determine eligibility based on the above conditions and your specific circumstances. If you have any questions, we’d be happy to help!
