Veterans Choice

The PATH Clinic is operated by the Sto-Rox Neighborhood Health Council and participates in the Veterans Choice program. Veterans Choice allows Veterans eligible for care at the VA to see community providers if certain conditions are met.

Here are the steps to get an appointment if you are a VA patient:

  1. Contact your Pittsburgh VA primary care provider (PCP) and ask for an acupuncture appointment.
  2. If the VA cannot see you within 30 days, ask for a Veterans Choice referral to be seen in the community.
  3. After that, you will either be contacted by the VA or Health Net Federal Services. When you are contacted, ask to be seen at the Sto-Rox Neighborhood Health Council.
  4. Once you are approved, call 412-431-3520 for an appointment.

VA will pay for your visit at the customary rate and with authorize a pre-determined number of appointments for you.
