VA Choice program gets $2.1 billion in emergency funding

Popular

President Donald Trump signed the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act Saturday, giving $2.1 billion to fund the Veterans Choice program and $1.8 billion for other VA health efforts.

The funds will allow Veterans Choice to last for another half year. As it was, the program was set to run out of money by mid-August. The program allows veterans with long wait or travel times for appointments to get federally funded care elsewhere, from non-VA doctors. The VA launched the program in 2014, when veterans were facing weeks or months-long waits—waits that were covered up by false records.  VA Choice program
