The Health Care for Re-entry Veterans (HCRV) Program is designed to address the community re-entry needs of incarcerated Veterans. HCRV services include:
- Outreach and pre-release assessments services for Veterans in prison
- Referrals and linkages to medical, psychiatric, and social services, including employment services upon release
- Short term case management assistance upon release
The VA may not provide medical services that are part of care to be provided by correctional institutions. HCRV provides information to Veterans while they are incarcerated so they may plan for re-entry themselves.
