The Flex Rural Veterans Health Access Program will provide support to coordinate activities to provide rural Veterans access to services for needed mental health care via the use of networks, electronic communication, and telehealth.

Grant funds can be used for the following purposes:
  • Telehealth Networks (RVHAP-TH): providing clinical services to rural veterans from more distant clinicians including both direct interactive tele-consultations and store-and-forward applications of telehealth service
  • Health Information Exchange Networks (RVHAP-HIE): activities to support the transfer of clinical information for veterans in rural areas to other providers both within VA and its electronic health record system and private providers who are involved in their care with the goal of improving care coordination for the rural veteran.

Current Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Program grantees in states with Critical Access Hospitals are eligible to apply. Special consideration will be given to states in which veterans make up a high percentage of the total population.
