VA Community Care provides health care to veterans through community providers when the VA cannot provide the care needed. This program is amazing and has been long overdue, but there is not a process for reimbursement for past care related to a new approval.

For example: I have paid for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy since 2017, before the program existed. I just found out about the VA Community Care program and applied. If approved, the VA will pay for EMDR sessions after my referral date. I should be able to provide any/all receipts for past EMDR sessions, that I paid out of pocket for, and be reimbursed.
