You must have a Veteran PCP. Make an appointment to see your Veteran PCP, who will conduct a consultation for home care services. Once this is completed your PCP will submit a referral to the VCP coordinator, and a home visit will be scheduled. Upon the completion of the home visit, you will provide Safe Hands information as your selected Home care provider. Safe Hands will then receive an authorization from the VCP to provide services. This program is not income based and we encourage all Veterans to take advantage of services offered by the VA.
