On July 6, 2016, the Congressionally mandated Commission on Care delivered its final report to the President through the VA Secretary. This report culminates 10 months of study and analysis of the VA health care system by the Commission and numerous consultants. Also, the national veterans organization community testified before the Commission multiple times and provided information to the Commission on our concerns as well as our ideas for reform to address a number of VA's longstanding problems.
 
It should be remembered that veterans, especially those who were injured or made ill because of military service rely heavily on VA's many services; our investigations reveal a very high level of satisfaction with most of these services. However, we have also noted both to the Commission and to the Congressional veterans committees, that VA's chronic underfunding contributed directly to many of the problems identified in an independent assessment. These problems exploded in 2014 and resulted in Congress enacting Public Law 113-146, the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014. That act, among many features, established this Commission and gave it its mandate to review VA health care and provide a report for changes that need to be made over the next 20 years to ensure veterans have access to high quality, timely health care.
 
The Commission made nearly two dozen recommendations that DAV is studying intensively. While we have not conclusively supported all of these recommendations, many of them are aligned closely with DAV's reform proposal submitted to Congress, VA and the Commission earlier this year. The Commission's report will be the subject of Congressional hearings following the Summer recess.
 
Executive Director, Washington Headquarters Garry Augustine issued an initial reaction on behalf of DAV. We anticipate, as our analysis continues, to further advise you and all DAV members of the actions we intend to take in response to the Commission's recommendations.
 
No action is requested at this time from our membership. As always, thank you for your interest in the legislative activities of the DAV.

A BIG THANK YOU TO REBUILDING TOGETHER AND FIRST MERIT BANK FOR HELPING A FEMALE VETERAN

VCAT HAS A NEW PILOT PROGRAM 'BIKES FOR VETS'  New 7 speed bikes were presented to 4 veterans to be used by them for getting to work and school.  The success of this program will be monitored and input from each vet on use and health benefits will be compiled.  Thanks to Bob and Bill these 4 veterans have transportation that will save them $$$.  It is calculated that riding the bike will save approximately $420 per month over owning a car. 

 

Those interested in being considered for a bike, email your reasons to Bill Mowder at wheels4warriors@yahoo.com
