Transition and Care Management Program (TCM)

As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs commitment to returning service members, we have created the Transition and Care Management Program (TCM), located in the main part of the medical center, building 500, 2nd floor, room 2A-124.  This clinic is designed specifically to meet your health care needs. This clinic co-locates Primary care, Mental Health and Social Work Services. 

During the first visit, you will meet with a Primary Care Provider for a comprehensive health exam, with a Combat Stress Consultant to discuss readjustment, and with an TCM Case Manager to address other post-deployment issues.

Special Eligibility and Coordination of Care for Combat Veterans Serving in Combat Theater After 11/11/1998- Returning Servicemembers (OEF/OIF/OND)

The Post-9/11 Transition and Care Management Program offers transitional assistance, case management and outreach services to all Veterans who have served after September 11, 2001 in their transition to civilian life. For more information about the various programs available for recent returning service members, log on to the Returning Servicemembers web site.

Veterans who served in a theater of combat operations also have special eligibility for VA health care. Under the "Combat Veteran" authority VA provides cost-free health care services and nursing home care for conditions possibly related to military service and enrollment in Priority Group 6 or higher for 5 years from the date of discharge or release from active duty, unless eligible for enrollment in a higher priority group.

Combat Veterans who enroll with VA under this enhanced Combat Veteran authority will continue to be enrolled even after their enhanced eligibility period ends, although they may be shifted to Priority Group 7 or 8, depending on their income level, and required to make applicable copays. Additionally, for care not related to combat service, copays may be required depending on their financial assessment and other special eligibility factors.

NOTE: The 5-year enrollment period applicable to these Veterans begins on the discharge or separation date of the service member from active duty military service, or in the case of multiple call-ups, the most recent discharge date.
