You would need to check with VA however from personal experience...private doctor / service is 110% better than VA. It is well worth the cost. Something about spending 12 hours in urgent care to being misdiagnosised...not taking that chance ever again.

Plus with VA to get in to see a doctor you need to make an appt almost 3 months in advance...that is where urgent care comes into play...
