Boozman Reviews Implementation of Veterans Health Program

Written by Press Release

April 12, 2019

 WASHINGTON-U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) pushed the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to share details on its implementation of landmark reforms to veterans’ community care programs. 

Boozman, a member of the Senate VA Committee, has spoken with veterans, Veterans Service Organization officials and private sector health care providers around Arkansas who are looking forward to the expanded benefits within the VA MISSION Act, but are concerned about the lack of information provided by the VA on the program that is scheduled to come online June 6, 2019.

The senator pressed the VA on its readiness for launching this program during a hearing Wednesday. “Do veterans know what to expect on June 6? Are we being proactive to the veteran community?” Boozman asked. 

Dr. Jennifer MacDonald, the Veterans Health Administration official in charge of the implementation, said a plan has been developed to educate veterans and providers about the new benefits.

Watch Boozman question VA officials about the preparedness and outreach of the VA for the June 6 launch of the VA MISSION Act here.
