Insurance Provider Links
There are additional ways that you as a provider can reach out to military clients and their family members in addition to joining Star Behavioral Health Providers. Opting into an insurance network that provides coverage for military members is one way of doing this. Below you will find links that can assist you in doing so if you are interested. Your decision to join one of these insurance provider networks is unrelated to your status with Star Behavioral Health Providers but surveys will ask if you have considered joining, or have joined any of these networks.

Veterans Choice Program
The Veterans Access, Choice, Accountability Act (VACAA) of 2014 is a law that expands the number of options Veterans have for receiving care to ensure that Veterans have timely access to high-quality care. The VACAA allows eligible Veterans who live more than 40 miles from a VA facility or are unable to get a VA appointment within 30 days of their preferred date, or within 30 days of the date determined medically necessary by their physician, to obtain approved care in their community instead.
Eligible Veterans must contact Health Net Federal Services, LLC (Health Net) to obtain authorization for all care under the Veteran Choice Program (VCP). Veterans are encouraged to access health care through Health Net’s comprehensive network of community-based, non-VA medical professionals who meet VA quality standards. These highly qualified providers are contracted as part of Health Net’s URAC accredited Patient-Centered Community Care (PCCC) network and proudly serve our Veterans today in PCCC.
