Selecting Your Participation Level

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Choice Program (VCP) and Patient-Centered Community Care (PCCC) programs provide eligible veterans access to care through a comprehensive network of community-based providers.

These programs augment VA’s ability to provide specialty inpatient and outpatient health care services to veterans.

To learn more about these programs and the role of our providers, attend one of our Provider Orientation webinars.

Providers have the option to join our network or register for veteran selection. Here’s a chart to help illustrate some of the differences between the two options.

PCCC Network

  • Provider signs a HNFS network contract and completes the credentialing process.
  • Provider is listed in our Preferred Provider Network for all current and future VA programs.
  • Providers are considered the first option in our internal referral and authorization system.
  • Provider can render services to VCP- or PCCC- eligible veterans upon receipt of an authorization.
