* The VA typically requires all services to be provided within VA medical centers. However, at times they will refer to non-VA specialists. This most often occurs when they do not have the needed specialty, or, they have overflow issues. VA personnel MUST have VA authorization for all services within Virginia Mason.

* Note: If you have the VA and Medicare, you may choose to use either your VA benefits or your Medicare benefits.

Contact your health insurance plan for information on covered services before your appointment.
