IRVINE, CA – June 19, 2014 – Kareo Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based medical office software and services for small medical practices, announced today its support for expanding veterans’ timely access to quality healthcare. Kareo is helping medical practices participate in existing and future Veterans Affairs’ programs, including the recently announced VA Accelerating Access to Care Initiative. Kareo is supporting this VA Initiative by making it easier for physicians and other healthcare providers to enroll with the VA as community providers, thereby expanding veterans’ healthcare options beyond VA facilities and providers.
Kareo has created a new guide and helpful checklist for medical practices that outline the steps required to register with the VA as community providers Upon successful registration in the VA program, community providers are eligible to serve veterans from VA facilities that are not able to provide either timely care or specialty care. Kareo also is providing private practices that use Kareo practice management software or billing solutions, free, assisted enrollment in the VA’s electronic claims processing system, ensuring the most expedient and cost effective payment processing for both providers and the VA.
“We are honored to support our nation’s veterans by helping small medical practices to enroll with the VA as community providers”, said Dan Rodrigues, CEO and founder at Kareo. “We strongly believe that small medical practices are an valuable resource to expand the available options for veterans seeking timely or specialty care.”
There are almost 400,000 office-based physicians in the US today who deliver care in small practice settings. These physicians and their staff present an incredible, yet grossly underutilized, healthcare resource for US veterans who deserve access to timely, high-quality healthcare. Kareo’s goal is to raise provider awareness of existing VA programs to expand a veteran’s access to care, while advocating for more utilization by the VA of its programs that broaden care options.
Private practices interested in receiving help with enrollment in the VA’s electronic processing system can call (888) 775-2736 or email for immediate help from a Kareo enrollment specialist.
