VA Maryland Health Care System
Open House & Town Hall at Perry Point March 2016
What Can the VA Do for Me?
We Encourage Local Veterans to Find Out!
Men and women who have served in the military may be entitled to an array of health care and compensation benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). But many veterans are underutilizing or unaware of the benefits that they are eligible to receive. The VA Maryland Health Care System hopes to change that.
In partnership with the Baltimore VA Regional Office, the VA Maryland Health Care System will host an Open House & Town Hall on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Perry Point VA Medical Center Gymnasium and Theater, located in Perry Point, Maryland. The health care system is encouraging local veterans to learn how to make the most of the VA services available to them by attending this free event.
“We have to do a better job of connecting and interacting with our veterans,” explains Dr. Adam M. Robinson, Jr., director of the VA Maryland Health Care System. “Events like this Open House & Town Hall are one of the ways we aim to do that, by increasing awareness and opening the lines of communication. I don’t want a single man or woman who has worn the cloth of our nation to not take full advantage of what they are entitled to receive through the VA because they are confused by how to navigate the services or simply don’t know about them,” he adds.
“While the event is open to all veterans and their family members, Robinson extends a special invitation to veterans who enrolled in the VA in the past, but have not recently used its services. “Let’s reconnect,” he says. “We’d like you to come see what has changed at the VA, what is new, and how we can best serve you.”
In addition to the Open House, during which VA staff will be available to provide information, answer questions, and assist veterans in completing applications for VA health care and VA compensation benefits, the event will include a Town Hall from 4:15 to 5:45 p.m. Following some brief presentations, veterans will be invited to ask questions, make comments, and share feedback on the care they’ve received.
Veterans interested in applying for VA health care are advised to bring a photo ID, financial information from the previous calendar year, and a copy of their discharge papers (Form DD-214) if available.
