VA offers 3 types of programs that provide non-VA community care to veterans. They are Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3), Community Care Network (CCN), and Veterans Care Agreements (VCA). The second, CCN, consolidates 2 existing VA community care programs—Patient-Centered Community Care and Veterans Choice—as called for by the VA MISSION Act of 2018, which sought to eliminate the confusion veterans have faced with multiple programs and eligibility requirements, helping to ensure that veterans get the right care at the right time from the right provider.
