VA MISSION ACT

VA MISSION Act: What is the latest on community care?

Last June, President Trump signed landmark legislation, known as the VA MISSION Act of 2018, that makes dramatic improvements to how Veterans receive community care—health care provided outside of VA. While the law affects many other VA programs, the changes to community care are among the most complex and far-reaching in recent history. Learn more about the proposed six new eligibility criteria for Veterans.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Are you on RallyPoint?

RallyPoint Resource
VA recently signed an MOU with RallyPoint, an online platform serving 1.6M military, Veterans, families, caregivers, and survivors. There are more than 420K Veteran-centric discussions on RallyPoint, and the platform is a great place to ask (or answer!) questions like "How do I get my Army Medical Records to submit a VA claim?"
