Those serving in the U.S. military have a mission to protect and defend. Once home, veterans may need our help navigating complex health care systems. That’s where Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) Veteran Health Program, part of the Department of Community Health, comes in.

Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Veteran Health Program (VHP) addresses the potentially unique circumstances of men and women who have performed military service. MAVRIC staff are professionals knowledgeable in veteran care and versed in veterans’ health care needs.

A MAVRIC care manager will interview the veteran or family member and create a personalized client plan built upon their current needs. As part of their plan, our care managers will also connect clients with community partners for other supportive services, if needed.

MAVRIC offers a fully coordinated health care experience in association with the Department of Defense through TRICARE, Veteran’s Choice Program and other similar programs with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Why is the Veteran Health Program important?

Citizens from the Lehigh Valley are serving – or have served – in securing our liberty and being exposed to great personal risk. MAVRIC strives to provide all veterans and their families with a coordinated, and transformative care experience. The service addresses the complex health care needs of veterans by collaborating with area Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense partners. Addressing the health care risk of our community improves lives, contributes to a healthy work force and reduces costs for individuals and businesses alike.

Legacy of honor

Established in 2017, through funding from the Fleming Foundation, MAVRIC was named in honor of World War II veteran, Dick Fleming, and his wife Peggy, both longtime LVHN benefactors. MAVRIC has helped hundreds of veterans and their families receive health benefits they have earned.

Who is eligible to join or engage?

We invite all active duty, Reserve, Guard, retirees of the armed services and their families and veterans seeking care and information on health services, benefits information and community services available to them to contact MAVRIC.
