Veterans Choice Was Fix the VA

Congress complaining VA not taking care of veterans? 

We've been down this road before. Looking more like circles all the time.
"This bill includes many other important health care provisions. For example, H.R. 2116:
• Expands veterans’ eligibility for reimbursement of emergency care costs when VA or other Federal health care facilities are not accessible.

• Extends and expands VA’s authority to provide health care services to victims of sexual trauma.

• Makes more active duty personnel eligible for VA substance dependency treatment.

• Authorizes VA to update the schedule of copayments charged for certain health care benefits to generate additional program funds."
Signed by President Bill Clinton November 30, 1999
