President Signs Veterans Choice Act















President Trump has signed The Veterans Choice Improvement Act.  This new law will significantly expand an existing program at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The final printed copy of the signed legislation was not available at the time of this writing.
Key Factors of the Choice Improvement Act

The new legislation has several key items:

    The program allows patients to seek care from private doctors if they want to go outside of the VA system.
    The new law removes barriers that Congress inserted in the original “choice” initiative.
    It eliminates the expiration date of the law that would have closed the program in August 2017.
    The law makes the VA the primary payer (currently the VA is the secondary payer) for medical care relating to non-service connected disabilities and recovery of costs from third parties for certain care under the program.
