TEST – VA Community Care Network Program Guide and FAQs
What is the VA Community Care Network (CCN)?
The Veterans Affairs Community Care Network (CCN) is a system of healthcare providers who provide necessary care to Veterans when the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is unable to do so—either due to a Veteran’s location or specific unmet healthcare needs.1
Physicians, facilities, and other practitioners belonging to the CCN are external providers located in your community that may offer a wider range of services than your local VA, including treatment for Veterans with addiction and co-occurring mental health diagnoses. Services with CCN providers are usually covered, or “purchased,” by the VA.2
American Addiction Centers (AAC) is a Community Care Partner, which means Veterans can receive excellent and timely care at any of our facilities when they require treatment for alcohol or drug misuse.

Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) Regional Networks
The VA Community Care Network is made up of six regional networks that act as “contract vehicles” for the VA to purchase care for Veterans from local providers when the VA cannot provide appropriate care to a Veteran. These six regional networks act to streamline the process of receiving care for Veterans and beneficiaries.5 (Map Source)

AAC is a Community Care Provider
AAC is a Community Care provider, which means that we are members of the VA’s Community Care provider network.

Veterans seeking treatment can rest assured that AAC has met all of the VA’s certification guidelines. In addition, providers like AAC can access the VA’s improved technology systems, which allow for electronic file sharing to expedite the referral and treatment process.1 Providers are also able to access required training materials from the VA, which helps to maintain high standards of care.1
