Veterans Choice Program Phone Line Imposter

A phone line has been set up by an unknown party to potentially "mimic" the VCP phone line. This imposter phone line may be intended to reach Veterans who inadvertently dial the VCP number incorrectly.

The VHA Office of Community Care (VHA CC) has reported the “mimic” line to the VA Office of Inspector General for a possible civil or criminal investigation.

The phone line established to "mimic" the VCP phone line is 1-800-606-8198. You will know you have reached the wrong VPC phone line when:

* The phone line offers a $100 rebate if the caller provides a credit card
*The phone line does not state the caller has reached U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the VCP phone line.

Be aware that his phone number incorrectly confirms callers had reach the VCP if the caller asks that question.

The CORRECT VCP phone line is 1-866-606-8198. This line is for Veterans to check their eligibility for the VCP and ask questions about the program.

If you are unsure if you have reached the correct phone line, hang up and dial 1-866-606-8198 again. The phone line will state the call has reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
