Care in the Community Page
Attention Veterans. The VA MISSION Act of 2018 was signed into law June 6, 2018. One of the biggest changes is for Veterans who were eligible for community care through the Choice 40 Program should now call the South Texas VA Office of Community care at 210-949-3850 to request care. For a better understanding of the MISSION Act and its requirements, please read the highlights from our telephone town hall, held April 30, and the MISSION Act Fact Sheet below.
