This week the VA MISSION Act's community care program will be implemented. This is a major step toward giving more veterans more health care choices and making the VA more veteran-centric.
Under the community care program's standards – which are simple, straightforward, and similar to those successfully used under the military’s TRICARE program – the VA will be better integrated with community health care providers, structural issues with the VA’s outside care programs will be fixed, and access to care will be improved while expanding health care options available to veterans through the VA.
Veterans sacrificed under the promise they’d be taken care of when they took off the uniform. Let your legislator know veterans deserve more health care options through the VA MISSION Act!
