Veteran’s Choice Program

At Pasadena CyberKnife Center, we are passionate about helping our patients rekindle hope and reclaim their lives – and we’re never more grateful to do it then when we’re working with a veteran. At our office, we are proud of the long tradition of service that our veterans continue to selflessly uphold, and we firmly believe in the importance of giving back to our veterans. That’s why we’re excited to announce that our office has joined the Veteran’s Choice Program – and if you’re a veteran, you may be eligible for treatment.

Giving Choice in Medical Care

The Veteran’s Choice Program, or VCP, is an initiative aimed at easing the burden on VA hospitals and ensuring that veterans get timely, convenient access to the care they need. Essentially, the program allows qualifying veterans to seek treatment from a qualified non-VA hospital if they can’t easily get treatment through the VA system. It’s a great way for veterans to access the high-quality care they need without excessive travel or wait times.

Do I Qualify for the Veteran’s Choice Program?

If you’re a veteran, you may well qualify for the VCP. Here are a few of the factors for qualification:

  • Can’t schedule an appointment within 30 days of the clinically indicated date
  • Live more than 40 miles from a VA facility
  • Must travel by boat, ferry, or plane to get to a VA facility
  • Face an unusual or excessive burden in getting to a VA facility

Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis, but if you’ve had difficulty getting treatment from the VA for whatever reason, you may be able to join the program. Check out this information sheet or call (866) 606-8198 to find out if you’re eligible – or, for more information, reach out to us.
