Orlando Recovery Center is honored to be a part of the VA Community Care Network.

We work with the VA to help veterans receive high-quality, physician-led addiction and co-occurring mental health treatment at our facility.

What Is the Community Care Network (CCN)?

The Community Care Network (CCN) is a network of private health care providers that gives veterans greater accessibility to health care outside of VA medical facilities. The VA can schedule appointments on the veteran’s behalf, or the veteran can request care at a facility of their choosing within the network, like Orlando Recovery Center.

Working with Your VA Benefits

Our Veteran Advocates help you navigate your Community Care eligibility and health insurance benefits through our partnership with the VA. We advocate on your behalf to make the approval process as seamless as possible and get you high-quality, professional addiction treatment for veterans.

VA Community Care Eligibility

A veteran needs to meet only one of six criteria to be eligible for the CCN: 

  1. The veteran needs a service that’s not available at a VA medical facility.
  2. The veteran lives in a U.S. state or territory without a full-service VA medical facility.
  3. The VA cannot provide care within designated driving time and wait time standards.
  4. Receiving care in the CCN is in the veteran’s best medical interest.
  5. A VA service line does not meet certain quality standards.
  6. The veteran qualifies under the “Grandfather” provision related to distance eligibility for VCP.

Your eligibility for community care depends on your circumstances and individual health care needs:

  • You’ll need approval from the VA before starting care with us, in most cases.
  • Generally, VA staff members make all eligibility decisions.
  • You must be enrolled in VA health care or be eligible for VA care without enrolling.
