Reporting Non-VA Emergency Care
If you are admitted for non-VA emergency care, be sure to tell the non-VA Emergency Room and hospital facility that you are a Veteran. You must report your non-VA inpatient admissions and/or emergency room visits within 72 hours to the Business Office at the Minneapolis VAHCS at 612-467-2019. You are required to sign a Release of Information form at the non-VA facility to allow them to release your medical records to the VA. The Business Office at the Minneapolis VAHCS needs copies of your non-VA medical records before they can consider making payments. However, notifying the Minneapolis VAHCS and/or providing your medical records to them do NOT guarantee VA payment.
The mailing address for the Business Office is:
