Veterans Choice Act Assessments
Congress passed the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 to improve veterans’ access to timely, high-quality health care and improve accountability within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The legislation mandated an independent assessment of the health care provided to veterans, which examined the demographics and health care needs of veteran populations, health care resources and capabilities, and the authorities and mechanisms to ensure that veterans are able to get the care they need.
What are veterans' demographics and health care needs and how might these evolve? What resources and capacity to deliver health care does the Department of Veterans Affairs have and how might this impact veterans' access? What should policymakers consider when examining changes to VA's use of purchased care?
