Tuesday, July 7, 2020Urgent Care by Phone Offered for VA Black Hills Veterans
VA Black Hills Health Care System has made accessing urgent care services even easier by offering “Urgent Care by Phone”. Veterans enrolled in VA health care can speak with a nurse practitioner and receive treatment for many of the same conditions they would when they go to urgent care. Veterans may call 1-877-339-6837 and ask to speak with a nurse. Veterans using Urgent Care by Phone will not be subject to a co-payment.
This expanded service is offered Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Veterans with conditions like sore throat, gout, rash, sinus infection, flu-like illness, upper respiratory infection, and minor injuries could benefit from using Urgent Care by Phone. This is a great option for care from the safety and convenience of home. Veterans simply need to call 1-877-339-6837, ask for a nurse who will evaluate your situation and, if appropriate, refer you to a nurse practitioner for further evaluation and treatment.
Your Safe Care is our Mission.
