Veterans’ Health Services Legislation

Official Portrait

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, voted to advance legislation to consolidate and improve access to veterans’ healthcare services at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and in the communities where veterans live, work and seek medical care.

The Caring for our Veterans Act of 2017, introduced by Chairman Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Ranking Member Jon Tester (D-MT), would establish a permanent, streamlined ‘Veterans Community Care Program’ to ensure access to timely and quality care.

“This legislation builds off the improvements made by the Choice program so we can provide the best care available to our veterans. We have a responsibility to take care of the men and women who served in uniform. This helps make good on the promise we made to our veterans,” Boozman said.    MORE
