New Choice Program Support Office at Manchester VA

Congress recently passed Public Law 113-146, the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, on Aug. 7, 2014 to expand Veteran access to clinical care.  The new law provides $10 billion to fund The Choice Program, which will allow eligible Veterans who meet certain criteria to seek care outside the VA health care system. 

Manchester VA Medical Center (Manchester VAMC) is proud to announce a dedicated Veterans Choice Program Support Office for the purpose of providing New Hampshire Veterans with a greater understanding of the Choice Program.

Veterans, their loved ones as well as our community partners and interested parties are now provided with enhanced support through a newly dedicated Choice Program Support Office. Our dedicated Choice Program Support Office is open Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., and is co-located at the Manchester VA on the 1st Floor, Room N135 with the Eligibility Office.

Manchester’s new Choice Program Support Office works collaboratively with Health Net Federal Services which administers the Veterans Choice Program for New Hampshire and Vermont Veterans. Veterans interested in using Choice should continue to seek authorization by calling the Choice Program Call Center at 1-866-606-8198. The Manchester VAMC Choice Program Support Office will assist Veterans with questions related to eligibility, understanding the program or with new processes.


Veterans may qualify for Veterans Choice in two different ways: 1.) They live more than 40 miles from a VA facility to include all CBOCs (or in NH 20 miles from WRJ VAMC) or 2.) If the Veteran will have to wait more than 30 days from the clinically indicated date or patient preferred date. The Veterans who choose to utilize their Choice Card will be instructed to call 866-606-8198 for care.

It is our mission to honor America's Veterans by providing exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being.  Manchester VAMC is committed to ensuring all Veterans have access to the care they have earned and supports all Veterans in making a choice when it comes to their care.

If you have questions about the Veterans Choice, Access and Accountability Act, please contact Manchester VA Medical Center’s Choice Program Support Office. Choice Champions are available at: or 800-892-8384, when you hear Welcome enter extension 2820. Learn more »
