According to the Veterans Health Administration, Primary Care CBOCs are VA-owned, VA-leased, mobile, or contract clinics that offer both medical (physically on site) and mental health care (either physically on site or by telehealth) and may offer support services such as pharmacy, laboratory, and x-ray. The clinic may be operational 1 to 7 days per week. Access to specialty care is not provided on site, but may be available through referral or telehealth. A Primary Care CBOC often provides home-based primary care (HBPC) and home telehealth to the population it serves to meet the primary care and mental health needs of Veterans who have difficulty accessing clinic-based care. These clinics have access to a higher level of care within a VHA network of care. Primary care in VA includes both medical and mental health care services, as they are inseparable in providing personalized, proactive, patient-centered health care. The establishment of a new primary care CBOC can only be approved by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, with Congressional notification. For more information, see https://www.va.gov/health/.
