VA HEALTH CARE
Healthcare is run by VA Healthcare Administration and is entirely different than the Benefits Administration. You can enroll in the healthcare system online at https://www.va.gov/health-care/how-to-apply
The closest VA health facility is the Bremerton Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC), at 925 Adele Avenue, off of Kitsap Way. The Bremerton CBOC will be relocating to 9177 Ridgetop Boulevard in Silverdale, WA on December 2, 2019.
Your other choices are the Seattle VA Medical Center on Beacon Hill or American Lake near Joint Base Fort Lewis/McChord.
Why it is important for you to enroll in either or both programs? The number of veterans enrolled, and the severity of their injuries is part of the budgeting formula VA uses in distributing revenue to different regions. By enrolling now, you are helping the next generation of veterans in our area.
