Veterans Choice Program is Failing Our Soldiers

Written by on October 27, 2017

Veterans aren’t getting the assistance that they need through the Veterans Choice Program – and Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi is calling for a review of, and improvements to, the program.
During a speech on the Senate floor yesterday, Enzi noted that he has not only heard concerns from veterans in need of care, but also from providers who have been unable to get reimbursed for medical services. According to Enzi, this means some doctors and facilities have ended their participation in VA Choice because it is taking too long to get reimbursed or they are unable to get reimbursed at all.
Enzi said he is working with the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee to make sure that any new version of community care for our veterans takes into account the unique challenges that rural and frontier health care networks face.
