dva-cvc program

What does CVC stand for?

CVC stands for Coordinated Veterans’ Care, a program initiated by the Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) to provide better, coordinated care for eligible veterans with two or more chronic conditions or complex care needs.

The main purpose of the program is to minimise hospital admissions by addressing problems early with a view to keeping veterans in their own home for as long as it is practical.

The CVC Program focuses on a team-based approach to healthcare, where general practitioners, practice nurses, and other healthcare providers collaborate to deliver a comprehensive and coordinated care plan for each eligible patient.

How are patients eligible for the CVC Program?

Patients are eligible for the CVC program if they meet the following criteria:

Hold a DVA Gold Card or a DVA White Card

For Gold Card holders: Patient has one or more chronic conditions or complex care needs requiring ongoing clinical care.

For White Card holders: Patient may be eligible if they have a DVA-accepted mental health condition.

Be at risk of hospitalisation due to these chronic conditions or complex care needs.
