The VA’s Federal Recovery Coordination Program

The Federal Recovery Coordination Program is available to veterans who are seriously injured, wounded or ill. The program offers the benefit of assignment of a Federal Recovery Coordinator who will assist you in “recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration.”

According to the VA’s website, you must be referred to the program by a military commander, or a member of your healthcare team. However, the site states that you can make a “self-referral,” too.

Additionally, to qualify for the Federal Recovery Coordination Program, you must be receiving “acute care” in a military treatment center and  have one or more of the following serious injuries:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burns
  • Amputation
  • Visual impairment
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • At risk for psychosocial complications
