VA Warns of Veterans Choice Program Telephone Scam
Wednesday, May 3, 2017
Please be aware of a telephone scam affecting veterans trying to
reach the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) phone line. A mimic phone line
has been set up by an unknown party that may be intended to reach
veterans who inadvertently dial “1-800” instead of “1-866” when trying
to reach the 1-866-606-8198 VCP phone line. Please review the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs' Phone Line Imposter Fact Sheet for
- Callers who reach this mimic line are offered a $100 rebate if they provide credit card information.
- The mimic phone line does not announce callers have reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the VCP phone line.
remember … when calling the VCP phone line, veterans will never be
asked to provide credit card information over the phone.
Veteran Health Affairs Office of Community has reported the issue to the
VA Office of Inspector General for possible civil or criminal
