MISSION Act goes live this week

VA health act to expand care access for veterans

Veterans in our area will soon have more ways to access their healthcare.

The MISSION Act provides services for veterans where and when they need them. Under the act, if a certain type of health service isn’t provided by VA, veterans may be able to go to a non-VA provider using their VA coverage.

The MISSION Act goes into effect o Thursday and hopes to increase the timeliness and accessibility of health care for veterans.
