Washington, D.C. - Today, members of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, led by Chairman Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) and Ranking Member Tim Walz (D-Minn.), introduced a bipartisan bill to streamline VA’s community care accounts into one veteran-centric program that replaces the Choice Program, removing the current 30-day, 40-mile requirement to give veterans more timely access to community care.

“The VA of the 21st century should be able to adapt to the changing needs of our veterans," said Coffman. “By streamlining VA’s community care services, this bill puts veterans’ healthcare needs first while pioneering efficiency & accountability in the VA system.”
