DVA and CHAMPVA

A facility understands that, through this network agreement, it agrees to being reported to the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and to Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Veterans Administration (CHAMPVA) as a TRICARE network provider. This agreement will give the DVA the right to directly contact the facility and request care on a case-by-case basis for VA patients or CHAMPVA beneficiaries if the facility availability allows. The facility understands that it is not required to meet access standards for CHAMPVA beneficiaries, but is encouraged to do so. The facility understands that CHAMPVA beneficiaries are not to receive preferential appointment scheduling over a TRICARE beneficiary.
