Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center is proud to offer substance use disorder services for United States military veterans who are seeking behavioral healthcare through the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network.
What Is the Community Care Network?
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Care Network (CCN) provides a link between the VA and healthcare providers all over the United States.
The CCN was established in 2018 to help veterans find the behavioral health services they need without delay. With the VA’s development of the CCN, veterans can receive treatment from VA facilities as well as authorized providers near them.
The CCN includes thoroughly vetted providers across six different regions within the United States and U.S. territories.
To ensure quality services and communication, the VA formed contracts with third-party administrators (TPAs) to develop the regions of the CCN.
The VA contracted Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc. and TriWest Healthcare Alliance to serve five of the six regions in the United States. The sixth region, which includes American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands, remains uncontracted.
Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center is located in a region served by Optum Public Sector Solutions Inc., also known as Optum.
Optum is part of UnitedHealth Group and received a contract from the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2018 to serve as the third-party administrator (TPA) for three regions within the Community Care Network.
Optum now serves Regions 1, 2, and 3, which includes the northeastern, southeastern, and central areas of the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
