The Department of Veterans Affairs has limited access to the VA MISSION Act’s community care options.
This has restricted when and where veterans are able to get medical care at this critical time. The VA canceled nearly 19 million appointments during the pandemic, and millions more still need to be rescheduled.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues around the country, the VA should be focused on removing barriers for veterans to receive health care, not creating barriers. In this unprecedented time, care for veterans should be a collaborative conversation between the VA, veterans and community providers.
We need to do all we can to ensure another Phoenix-like waitlist situation doesn’t occur.
Tell Washington to allow veterans to access the community care options they deserve!
