Contact the VA Clinic in Manila: The VA Clinics new toll free number in Manila:
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has a new toll free telephone service. For outside Metro Manila, you may call VA at 1-800 - 1-888 - 5252. You can still continue to use their direct line 02-833-4566 within Metro Manila. This saves me a lot, because I have to call often to get my prescriptions renewed. The VA Clinic has asked I let all the visitors to the Living in the Philippines Web site and to the Living retiring traveling and doing business in the Philippines List about this new number. Remember this toll free number is only good for calling from in the Philippines, outside of Manila Again, the VA Clinic number is 1-800 - 1-888 5252.
Thank you V.A. Clinic for having a toll free telephone number for veterans in the Philippines outside manila!
In addition to the Regional Office, VA operates a Clinic located at 2201 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City. Clinic hours of operation are from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Medical care is limited to service connected disabilities only and includes out-patient care at the clinic and in-patient care at various contract hospitals. Prior authorization is required for non-emergency out-patient care and hospitalization.
Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces have the same entitlement to monetary benefits in the Philippines that they would have in the United States with the exception of Home Loans and related programs, which are not available here. Benefits for veterans of the Philippine Commonwealth Army, USAFFE, Recognized Guerillas, and New Philippine Scouts are different than those for veterans of the regular components of the U.S. Armed Forces. U.S. citizenship does not affect their entitlement to benefits.
