A bill to improve the health care of the nation's veterans was approved by the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs last week. The "Veterans Health Care Act of 2005" now goes to the floor of the Senate for a vote. Among many provisions, the bill provides free health care for veterans in the area impacted by Hurricane Katrina. That free care would end January 31, 2006. The legislation would also allow VA to reimburse enrolled veterans for the money they spend after receiving emergency treatment in a non-VA facility. The bill also directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to expand and improve mental health care services, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) care provided to veterans, and expand counseling through tele-health linkages. If the bill is approved by Congress and signed into law, the VA would also be able to conduct a study on finding financial efficiencies within the veterans' health care system. For more on Hurricane Katrina, visit our special section covering the disaster and ongoing relief efforts.

Fight the VA as if they are the enemy; for they are!
