The Veterans Health Administration has launched a new web resource for community care providers as it works to improve the timeliness of payments and customer service. The website features a reference library with provider fact sheets, forms and training, and other provider resources such as contact information for the VHA Office of Community Care and other Department of Veterans Affairs divisions. It also offers resources for providers seeking prompt payment of their claims, including a new Vendor Inquiry System that lets hospital and health systems check their claim status online. In other news, the VA recently posted a factsheet on reimbursement for emergency treatment for non-service connected conditions at non-VA facilities, based on an interim final rule released in January.
