SAVE THE DATE: SSVF National Webinar: August 13, 2:00 PM ET – Health Care Navigators
On July 16, 2020, VA announced an additional $400M in additional CARES supplemental funding for the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. A portion of these funds will support each grantee in employing designated Health Care Navigators to work with VA Medical Center staff, to ensure appropriate care coordination for Veterans in need of appointments at local VAMC. These navigators will work with designated VA points of contact and VA primary care teams when indicated to establish regular case conferences to review ongoing care coordination. The SSVF Program Office will present a webinar describing the role of the SSVF Health Care Navigator and tips for recruitment and hiring. SSVF Program Office staff will also discuss plans for supporting grantees in developing and training new Health Care Navigator staff.
A registration link to the webinar will be provided in the next SSVF weekly update.
