The Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) is a comprehensive health care program in which the VA shares the cost of covered health care services and supplies with eligible beneficiaries. The program is administered by Health Administration Center and our offices are located in Denver, Colorado.

LOCATE CHAMPVA PROVIDER
We do not maintain a provider listing. Most Medicare and TRICARE providers will also accept CHAMPVA (but be sure you ask the provider). If you are having difficulty finding a provider, we recommend you visit the Medicare website and use the "Search Tools" at the bottom of that page to locate a Medicare provider.
If you choose to see a provider who does not accept CHAMPVA, the CHAMPVA SUPPLEMENT INSURANCE will pay or reimburse the cost share. Remember that CHAMPVA cost shares are based on the CHAMPVA allowable amount.
General Medications by Mail
The CHAMPVA program offers a robust pharmacy benefit, paying 75% of the allowable charge at any pharmacy for prescription medication. The Meds By Mail program offers prescription medication delivered to your home. The best part of Meds By Mail is that there is NO cost share or co-pay. CHAMPVA also offers a medication by mail program called MEDS BY MAIL.
Pharmacies That Accept CHAMPVA
Pharmacies that are a part of the SXC Health Solutions, Inc. (SXC) network, agree to collect your cost share and send a claim via SXC to CHAMPVA for the remaining amount. However, not all pharmacies are a part of the SXC pharmacy network. In those cases, you may have to pay the entire amount and submit a claim to CHAMPVA yourself. A good way to find a pharmacy that participates in the SXC network, is to visit their website at https://vahac.rxportal.sxc.com.
