Reporting Non-VA Emergency Care

If you are admitted for non-VA emergency care, be sure to tell the non-VA Emergency Room and hospital facility that you are a Veteran. You must report your non-VA inpatient admissions and/or emergency room visits within 72 hours to the Fee Services Unit at the Bay Pines VAHCS. Their telephone numbers are (727) 398-3236 or (727) 398-3227 or toll-free (888) 820-0230, ext. 13236 or 13227.

You are required to sign a Release of Information form at the non-VA facility to allow them to release your medical records to the VA. The Fee Basis Service at the Bay Pines VAHCS needs copies of your non-VA medical records before they can consider making payments. However, notifying the Bay Pines VAHCS and/or providing your medical records to them do NOT guarantee VA payment.

The mailing address for the Fee Basis Service is:
Bay Pines VAHCS
Fee Basis Service (11FB)
P.O. Box 5005
Bay Pines, FL 33744

Compensation and Pension

To speak with someone in compensation and pension, call the Medical Center at (727) 398-6661, or 1-888-820-0230.
