The Manchester VA announced Monday that it has expanded its network of walk-in and urgent care providers across the state, including a couple in the capital area.

Eligible veterans enrolled in the VA health care system can visit a provider in the network without prior authorization from the VA, as long as they have received care from the VA or a community provider in the previous two years.

The urgent care benefit is meant to give veterans convenient access to care for minor injuries and illnesses such as colds, strep throat and pink eye.

There are now more than 80 urgent and walk-in care providers in a 50-mile radius of the Manchester VA, according to a press release. A list of providers can be found at vaurgentcarelocator.triwest.com.
