What is a Veteran liaison?

A Veteran liaison is a veteran who understand the unique needs of service members and their families and can help them navigate health care services. This partnership helps veterans to connect with peers who they can relate to. Our liaisons specialize in helping veterans get connected to the local VA, understand benefit eligibility, submit a claim, or file for an appeal, along with many other services both inside and outside of HopeHealth.
