Sen. Murray Calls for Overhaul of VA Choice Card Program:

According to an October 23 Military Times article by Patricia Kime, the former chairwoman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee wants to overhaul the VA Choice program, the initiative that lets veterans see private physicians if they can’t get an appointment at a VA medical center.
Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday, Murray proposed an overhaul to Choice that would include strict guidance and clear eligibility rules designed to help veterans fully understand the program.
She said a revision also should streamline the process for doctors and medical personnel and the system itself, which suffers from duplication of contracts to provide non-VA care as well as mismanagement.
