Access Received Closer to Home
Project ARCH is a congressionally mandated pilot program designed to provide non-VA healthcare services to eligible Veterans closer to their homes. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has identified five counties (pilot sites) in separate VISN’s (Veteran Integrated Service Networks) to demonstrate how quality, cost-effective, and timely healthcare can be provided to enrolled veterans through a contracting arrangement. Humana Veterans provides personalized healthcare services in four of the pilot sites.
VISN 6 – Farmville, Virginia
VISN 15 – Pratt, Kansas
VISN 18 – Flagstaff, Arizona
VISN 19 – Billings, Montana
Eligibility for the pilot program is based on specific criteria including Veterans' enrollment for VA health care, distance from VA facilities for primary, secondary, or acute care. The number of Veterans who are eligible to participate in Project ARCH will depend on the specific pilot site and the Veterans’ healthcare needs.
Veterans are eligible to participate in the program if they reside in a location where a pilot site is located, are enrolled in the VA healthcare system when the program started, and meet any of the following criteria:
- Live more than 60 minutes driving time from the nearest VA health care facility providing primary care services; or
- Live more than 120 minutes driving time from the nearest VA health care facility providing acute hospital care; or
- Live more than 240 minutes driving time from the nearest VA health care facility providing tertiary care.
Veterans with questions about eligibility for Project ARCH should contact their local VA Medical Center.
Humana Veterans is proud to provide quality, cost-effective, and timely access to health care services for our nation’s Veterans.
