This commonsense bill would allow the Veterans Choice Program to run its course and between $200 million and $1 billion in authorized funding to go toward providing veterans with private sector healthcare rather than that funding being cut off in August 2017.
The Veterans Choice Program proved to be a useful pilot project in terms of gauging what works and what doesn’t in terms of letting veterans get healthcare from the private sector, but it should conclude on its sunset date and the VA assuming control of leftover funds.
