Cameron Urgent Care is A Preferred Provider for Vets
Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Angola, IN – Cameron Memorial Community Hospital and the Steuben County Veterans Service Office have teamed up to provide close-to-home healthcare services for veterans. Historically, there has been a lack of area urgent care facilities that accept insurance through Veteran Affairs (VA), requiring Steuben County residents to travel to Battle Creek, Michigan or Fort Wayne for care. Following several meetings with local and federal government officials, Cameron Urgent Care is now a part of the VA’s contracted network.

Veterans that receive insurance through the local VA are encouraged to utilize Cameron Urgent Care to receive treatments for minor illnesses and injuries.

In a news release from Cameron, Steuben County Veterans Service Officer Alex Dobson said, “there has been a huge gap in this community when it comes to Veteran healthcare needs”. Dobson commended Senator Mike Braun and Cameron Hospital for working with his office to bring healthcare services for area veterans closer to home.

Cameron says Veterans that receive care through the VA may be charged up to $30 co-pay for their urgent care visit, which will be billed separately through the VA and is not expected to be paid at time of visit. Prescriptions can also be filled through Cameron Urgent Care, but must be submitted through the VA.

Dobson says the next step is “to bring primary care doctors to the area that are a part of the VA’s network”.
