Emergency VA Health Care
Veterans in an acute suicidal crisis may contact any Veterans Affairs or non-VA healthcare facility free of charge for emergency medical care—including inpatient or crisis-related inpatient care for up to 30 days and outpatient care for up to 90 days.
Veterans do not need to be registered in the VA system to take advantage of this benefit.
This expansion of care will help prevent veteran suicide by guaranteeing veterans free, premium care in times of crisis. It will also increase access to acute suicide care for up to 9 million veterans not currently enrolled in VA.
Preventing veteran suicide is VA’s top clinical priority and a top priority of the Biden administration. These efforts are an important part of the VA’s 10-year National Strategy to Prevent Veteran Suicide and the Biden-Harris administration’s plan to reduce military and veteran suicides. In September, VA released the 2022 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report, which showed that veteran suicides in 2020 fell for the second straight year and that 2020 had fewer veterans dying by suicide than any year since 2006.
The final policy allows VA to do the following:
• Provide, pay for, or reimburse for treatment of suicide emergency care, transportation, and follow-up care at a VA or non-VA facility for up to 30 days of inpatient and 90 days of outpatient treatment to eligible individuals.
• Issue appropriate referrals for care after the suicide emergency care phase.
• Determine eligibility for other VA services and benefits.
• Refer eligible individuals to appropriate VA programs and services after the suicide emergency care phase.
If you are a veteran in crisis or concerned about it, contact the Veterans Crisis Line for 24-hour confidential support. You do not need to be enrolled in VA Benefits or Health Care to connect. To reach emergency responders, dial 988 then press 1, chat online at VeteransCrisisLine.net/Chat, or text 838255.
