Velocity Urgent Care is a Veterans Administration Authorized Urgent Care Provider

Hampton Roads has a rich military history and Velocity Urgent Care has a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our area’s veterans. In the past, Veterans Administration beneficiaries have struggled with access to health care.  Thanks to a new law, the VA Mission Act of 2018, VA beneficiaries can now be seen in urgent care. Velocity Urgent Care is currently the only urgent care in Hampton Roads that is participating in this pilot program.

To be eligible for Urgent Care, Veterans must:

Be enrolled in the VA healthcare system AND have received care through VA from either a VA or community provider within the past 24 months.

To check eligibility, veterans can contact their local VA medical facility by phone or in person. Veterans do not need to get prior authorization from VA to utilize Velocity Urgent Care.

Other important things to know:

  • Velocity front office will verify eligibility with TriWest.
  • NO PAYMENT IS REQUIRED AT TIME OF SERVICE
  • The VA will bill the patient whatever co-payment is due, ranging from $0 to $30 depending on the veteran’s status.
  • There is no limit on the number of times a veteran may use urgent care under this benefit.
