Congressman to Host 13th Clinic Encouraging All Veterans to Enroll in VA
MAYS LANDING, N.J. – Continuing his commitment to South Jersey veterans, U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today detailed his plans to hold the next enrollment clinic in Cape May Court House to help local veterans in determining their eligibility and, if eligible, facilitate their participation in the VA healthcare system. The Cape May Court House enrollment clinic hosted at the Atlantic Cape Community College will be held on Saturday, April 29th.
“Over the past year in partnership with the VA, we have significantly expanded community-based services available locally for South Jersey veterans to include more than 200 provider agreements with non-VA medical professionals. But those efforts are not over and too many eligible veterans, particularly those returning from service abroad or who have non-VA healthcare, are not aware of assistance available to them,” said LoBiondo. “I remain committed to our veterans and will continue to host these clinics while working to expand local access to healthcare services.”
LoBiondo has long advocated for greater local healthcare services and continues to work with VA officials in Wilmington and Philadelphia and local veterans groups to bring additional services to South Jersey’s four VA community-based clinics (Vineland, Northfield, Cape May, Sewell).
As at previous enrollment clinics, there will be representatives from the VA Medical Centers and Benefits offices on hand to answer veterans’ questions and explain eligibility requirements. Veterans who plan to attend are asked to bring their DD-214.
Details of the Veterans Enrollment & Benefits Clinic on Saturday, April 29th are as follows:
Cape May County
ACCC – Cape May Court House Campus
41 Court House South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House
1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Veterans can also determine their eligibility, enroll in the VA system, and ask additional questions by calling 1-877-222-VETS or visiting the website www.va.gov.
This will be the 12th enrollment clinic hosted by LoBiondo, with previous sessions in Vineland, Bridgeton, Wildwood, Somers Point, Elmer, and Northfield. For additional information, veterans are encouraged to call LoBiondo’s Mays Landing Office at 609-625-5008 or 1-800-471-4450 or visit LoBiondo’s website: http://lobiondo.house.gov/resources/veterans
