The Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System is now able to offer veterans the option to make their own appointments in the following services without a referral from their primary care provider:
- PACT Clinical Pharmacy Specialist
- PACT Social Worker
- Tobacco Cessation
- Wheelchair/Amputee Services
The goal of this initiative is to improve clinic access, reduce wait times, and enhance veteran care and satisfaction, according to the VA. If successful, the process may roll out to other specialties.
Veterans can call 1-888-397-8387 to schedule an appointment.
Another new program called ‘Fast Track to VA Cancer Care’ is also available for Veterans with active cancer who are not yet enrolled in VA by calling 1-833-309-1349.
