VA Seeks Contractor to Support ‘Veterans Choice’ Healthcare Program

Veterans Affairs Department logoThe Department of Veterans Affairs plans to contract a vendor to help the agency implement measures mandated by the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014.

VA said Friday on the FedBizOpps website it wants information on potential third-party administrators that can facilitate and manage a program aimed at helping eligible veterans seek care from private health providers.

A TPA would produce and distribute Veterans Choice Cards as well as establish a call center to address program inquiries from both patients and clinicians.

The contractor would also coordinate medical referrals and use a system for managing claims, payments and follow-on services, according to the agency.

VA is slated to hold an industry day on Wednesday in Denver, Colorado to provide more information on the upcoming contract and gather comments from interested vendors.
