New Federal Recovery Coordinator Call Line

If you or someone you know needs coordinated care, the national Federal Recovery Coordinator Program just released this new call line.

Share this information with anyone you know who may need to refer wounded warriors and their families to highly specialized and highly trained care coordinators.

Federal Recovery Coordinators are one of the recommendations of the Dole/Shalala Commission and there are currently 13 of them assigned across the nation, including one in Augusta at Eisenhower Army Medical Center's Warrior Transition Battalion.

The Federal Recovery Coordinators are assigned out of the VA Central Office in Washington, and that's where this phone number rings. The program director works for the Secretary of the VA as a Special Assistant.

The staff in the DC office encourage anyone (friend, neighbor, loved one, self) to call if they have someone who may need coordinated care. They have criteria they must follow, but they are willing to refer people to other resources if they do not qualify.

Please share this with anyone you know who could benefit from it.

Toll-free Referral Phone Lines

1-877-461-0034 or 1-877-732-4456

The Federal Recovery Coordination Program (FRCP) toll-free phone line is an outreach to service members and veterans who are, or who may be, eligible for that Program. If a staff member is not available, the caller may leave a voice message. Calls will be returned the same business day. Any calls received outside business hours (M-F 9am-5pm Eastern) are returned the next working day. General inquiries, referrals or specific questions from family members, healthcare providers and interested others are welcome.
