VA to expand veterans’ access to private medical care Thursday


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday will launch a major expansion of veterans’ access to private doctors – a reform effort President Donald Trump has promised since his 2016 campaign but that some stakeholders think has been rushed.

The VA Mission Act, which was signed into law last June and goes into effect Thursday, increases the number of veterans who are eligible to receive private-sector health care from 8 percent to 40 percent of the VA’s 9.5 million patients, agency officials estimated. https://www.stripes.com/va-to-expand-veterans-access-to-private-medical-care-thursday-1.584717
