East Coast Podiatry Clinic is registered to provide podiatry services to Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Card holders.
If you are a DVA Card holder, you will require a referral from a doctor or hospital discharge planner in order to access podiatry. Some podiatry services also require prior approval from DVA in order to be funded under this system, and there are specific restrictions that apply in certain circumstances. However, in general:
- if you are a DVA Gold Card holder, DVA will fund podiatry services that are clinically needed;
- if you are a DVA White Card holder, DVA will fund podiatry services if required because of an accepted war caused or service related condition.
