BPVAHCS Implements Patient Self-Referral Direct Scheduling for Veterans Seeking Nutrition Services
November 7, 2017
Bay Pines, FL - The Bay Pines VA Health Care System (BPVAHCS) now offers direct scheduling for patients in need of nutrition services.
Veterans may now call their primary care clerk to schedule an appointment with the dietitian or call their clerk to make an appointment at their convenience. Consults sent from health care providers are no longer required.
In addition, health care teams can still send nutrition consults for high risk cases, or may give Veterans a nutrition, “ticket to good health,” that includes the clinic contact numbers to assist with making arrangements for future appointments.
Veterans can schedule nutrition appointments at any of the following BPVAHCS locations. After dialing the number, press option #2 for scheduling, then select primary care and your Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT).
