The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper is honored to be part of the VA Community Care Network to give veterans greater choice over their behavioral health care.

We work with the VA to help veterans receive high-quality, evidence-based addiction and co-occurring mental health treatment at our facility.

What Is the Community Care Network (CCN)?

The Community Care Network (CCN) is a network of private health care providers that gives veterans greater choice and accessibility to care outside of VA medical facilities. The VA can schedule appointments on the veteran’s behalf, or the veteran can request treatment and schedule care at a treatment provider of their choosing within the network, like The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper. 

Working with Your VA Benefits

Our Veteran Advocates help you navigate your health insurance benefits and Community Care eligibility through our partnership with the VA. We’ll work with you every step of the way to make the approval process as seamless as possible and get you high-quality, professional addiction treatment for veterans.

VA Community Care Eligibility

A veteran only needs to meet one of these six criteria to be eligible for care within the CCN:

  1. The veteran needs a service that’s not available at a VA medical facility.
  2. The veteran lives in a U.S. state or territory without a full-service VA medical facility.
  3. The VA cannot provide care within designated driving time and wait time standards.
  4. Receiving care in the CCN is in the veteran’s best medical interest.
  5. A VA service line does not meet certain quality standards.
  6. The veteran qualifies under the “Grandfather” provision related to distance eligibility for VCP.

It’s important to remember that your eligibility for community care depends on your individual health care needs and circumstances:

  • You’ll need approval from the VA prior to starting care with us, in most circumstances.
  • You must be enrolled in VA health care or be eligible for VA care without enrolling.
  • VA staff members generally make all eligibility decisions.
