Veterans Benefits Events For Erie County Veterans at VA Springville & Lackawanna Clinics
VA Western New York Healthcare System will host two Veterans benefits events in southern Erie County to provide information about VA health care and other Veterans benefits. The first event will be held at VA Springville’s CBOC from 1pm – 3:30 pm, at 15 Commerce Street on Wednesday, October 19, 2016. The VA Lackawanna CBOC event will be at 1234 Abbott Road from 1pm-4pm, Friday, October 21, 2016. The good news for enrollment eligible Veterans is that VA health care coverage meets the Affordable Care Act’s health care standards.
New Veterans seeking enrollment and access to VA health care are encouraged to bring their DD-214 discharge papers, and tax information from 2015. Veterans will then have the opportunity to enroll in VA health care and receive additional information about other Veterans benefits to include vocational, employment, educational opportunities and more! Both clinics will also provide flu vaccines and take photos for VA identification cards for eligible Veterans.
For more information about these Open Houses, please call (716) 592-2409 for VA Springville CBOC or (716) 821-7815 for Lackawanna CBOC.
