The Veterans Choice Program (VCP) is a benefit to eligible veterans that allows them to seek health care services from a local provider rather than waiting for a VA appointment (more than 30 days) or having to drive to a VA facility (more than 40 miles).  There are some other criteria a veteran can meet, as outlined in the information provided through the link below.  To find out if you are eligible for the program, call the VCP Call Center at 866-606-8198 or visit the VCP website to verify eligibility: Verify Eligibility for the VCP
