Veteran Community Care from Your Athens Chiropractor
Providing our brave veterans with the care they deserve.
From construction workers to office workers – everyone can benefit from chiropractic care. Unfortunately, due to various circumstances, not everyone can afford regular appointments with their Athens chiropractor, including veterans.
That is why Dr. Douglas L. Giles and his team are proud to support veterans like you with veteran chiropractic care. They’re able to provide these services through the VA’s veteran community care program.
Veteran Community Care: How It Works
The VA would like to provide healthcare services to all veterans. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible due to the distance between VA clinics and where patients live.
To serve veterans in outlying areas, they’ve set up a system called veteran community care. The program pays providers for providing services to veterans within the community that the VA cannot serve.
Veterans who live in Athens and surrounding areas are far enough away from Augusta and Atlanta that they’re able to access chiropractic services the veteran community care program.
