Veterans Win with Trump Administration's MISSION Act Reforms

Veterans Win with Trump Administration's MISSION Act Reforms


One story said to "expect glitches." Another said it was "confusing." Some lawmakers who supported the bipartisan bill suddenly warned about the possibility of "overreach" by the Trump Administration, while others warned of a "tech nightmare."

But thanks to thousands of dedicated VA workers around the country and President Donald J. Trump's support for this historic reform, elements of the MISSION Act took effect on June 6, and veterans immediately began benefitting from the largest transformation in veterans' health care since the end of World War II.

This achievement was met mostly by silence in the media -- which is as close as the press ever gets to saying, "good job." But because this revolution is likely to affect the health care decisions of millions of veterans for years to come, it's worth explaining how the MISSION Act has changed the lives of America's heroes for the better.

At its core, the MISSION Act reflects the president's vision that veterans need to be at the center of their health care decisions. If it's too long a drive to the VA, if wait times are too long, if we can't offer the services a veteran needs, or if it's simply in the best medical interest of a veteran to use non-VA services, they can now seek care in their community.


***********************************************





Can we all agree this is a good thing? Veterans should be able to walk into any healthcare facility to be treated.

Isnt that sad, like when he directed the gov to forgive disabled vets tuition loans, it was swept under the rug.

Not for nothing but he’s been doing alright by vets, not getting us into another war of choice. At least on this front, he seems to be doing alright.

I didn't see exact/specific reforms with regard to the computer systems the VA has used on the past. Which have had a helping hand in not providing tools to even allow for outside providers, among many other computer system issues. One being how dated and out of line with current technologies... like the deep web databases, networks and programs built around them.

My father died in a VA hospital not 4 miles from multiple hospitals that would have at least tried to save his life. They (VA) just let him die.

you are gullible enough to care where the truth comes from, instead of using google to fact check what these sources say. it is easy to do. if you just try. you can find most of these facts covered by Fox, and I assume you trust them. you just have to search for it, since they hate admitting how awful trump is.

and the military times is not at all liberal. neither are those other legitimate veteran groups that see how screwed up Trump is.

Since my birth in 1976 all presidents have been seen as being uncaring and/or screwing-over our veterans in some form or fashion.

But kudos to any president from any political party willing to do something permanent to the contrary.

Trump has already done more for Veterans in less than his 3 years in office, than Obama did for Vets in his 8 do-nothing-good for Veterans.

The military times may not be liberal, but the writer for the article needs a rectal exam.
