EYE-Q Proudly Supports Valley Veterans

veterans-eye-careVeterans Day may have passed but that doesn’t mean our vets should be forgotten. Each year thousands of veterans across the country go without healthcare. With the VA Health Care system stretched to full capacity, often veterans are required to wait months for an appointment or don’t receive any treatment at all.

In 2014, the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act (VACAA) was introduced to ensure that vets receive the benefits they’ve earned serving our country. The Veterans Choice Program was established in order to improve the VA’s ability to deliver high-quality and timely healthcare to veterans and meet VACAA requirements.

The Veterans Choice Program allows vets to seek and receive care from community-based providers when the local VA healthcare facility cannot provide services due to a lack of available specialists, extended wait times for appointments, or if the facility is more than 40 miles away from a veteran’s home.

The VA is working with approved local healthcare provider partners like EYE-Q Vision Care to ensure vets receive the benefits they deserve. EYE-Q is proud to serve those who have served our nation. 

If you’re a veteran and are currently enrolled in VA Health Care, EYE-Q is here to help. As a preferred, non-VA community provider, we are able to offer quicker appointments to veterans waiting more than 30 days for their VA eye care or who live more than forty miles from a VA facility. As the Valley’s premier eye care provider, EYE-Q offers comprehensive eye care, from basic eye exams to the treatment of sight-threatening eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma

Contact EYE-Q at 559-317-6770 for more information and to learn about our providers. Call 1-866-606-8198 to find out if you’re eligible and to receive service authorization for one of EYE-Q’s providers. 

If eligible, you can request an appointment with an eye care specialist at EYE-Q. EYE-Q also accepts TriWest, Medicare and most other insurance plans. Don’t wait to receive the benefits you’ve earned. It could save your sight!
