Abstract : VA and DOD's history of sharing resources to provide integrated health care services to their beneficiaries in and around North Chicago has occurred in three phases. The third phase culminated in the establishment of the FHCC, which was formalized by an Executive Agreement signed by the Secretaries of VA and DOD in April 2010. The FHCC is unique among other VA and DOD sharing relationships in its level of collaboration, governance structure, and financial model.
