W. G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center - Salisbury, NC
Veterans Assistance Clinic and Town Hall March 5
Salisbury VA Medical Center will host a Veterans assistance clinic and town hall meeting Thursday, March 5 from 3:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. The assistance clinic will be held in the learning resource center located in building 6 and the town hall meeting will be held in the social room, across the hall from the learning resource center, from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.
“After our two town halls and assistance clinics last year, we’ve really seen how the assistance clinics should be the focus,” said Kaye Green, Salisbury VA Medical Center director. “Assisting Veterans has always been the goal, but I think it is important for Veterans to know they don’t have to sit in a town hall to be heard or resolve an issue.”
The assistance clinic will have a range of services available including:
• VBA walk-in claims assistance
• Eligibility determination, application for, and enrollment in VA health care (non-enrolled Veterans should bring a DD-214)
• Appointment scheduling
• Mental Health outreach and information on groups and therapies
• My HealtheVet enrollment and assistance
• Prosthetics assistance
• Choice Program and Non-VA Care (fee basis) program assistance
• Patient advocates will also be available to help resolve issues with services not present during the assistance session
Veterans, family members and other beneficiaries are invited to attend. Congressional stakeholders, Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs), non-governmental organizations and other community partners are welcome.
The town hall meeting will be open to the media. To protect individual privacy and confidentiality, specific individual issues should be addressed in the assistance clinic instead of the public forum.
The executive leadership team of the Salisbury VAMC will be present, along with other key staff to provide updates on the facility’s progress related to access, scheduling, and other relevant issues during the town hall. The leadership team is looking forward to hearing from Veterans and gaining valuable feedback as we continue to improve our health system.
