MEMORANDUM

Posted: May 23, 2019 02:44 PM
From: Senator John DiSanto
To: All Senate members
Subject: VA MISSIONS Act
 
I will be introducing a resolution memorializing Congress to facilitate and ensure implementation of the VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks Act of 2018 (VA MISSION Act). The VA MISSION Act is designed to overhaul and reform the Veterans Choice Program along with other facets of the Veterans Health Administration and strengthen its ability to deliver health care by:
‚Äč
  • Consolidating VA community care programs into a single program that is much easier to navigate.
  • Expanding eligibility for Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers.
  • Strengthening VA’s ability to recruit and retain the best medical providers.
  • Improving VA’s infrastructure.
The Commonwealth is home to nearly one million men and women who have served. The VA MISSION Act will give these veterans more control over health care decisions and access to the best possible treatment. Veterans need the VA MISSION Act to make certain they receive the quality and timely care they were promised when they put on the uniform.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this important message to Congress.
