About the CVC Program

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) new Coordinated Veterans’ Care Program (known as the CVC Program) commenced on 1 May 2011.

The program is aimed at veterans, war widows, war widowers and dependants who are Gold Card holders and are at risk of being admitted or readmitted to hospital.

The CVC Program:

  • uses a proactive approach to improve the management of participants’ chronic diseases and quality of care
  • involves a care team of a general practitioner (GP) plus a nurse coordinator who work with the participant (and their carer if applicable) to manage their ongoing care
  • provides new payments to GPs for initial and ongoing care.

Detailed information about the program is available from:

  • Department of Veterans Affairs website
