H.R. 4526 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide certain information to people who submit claims seeking compensation for damage, injury, or death that they allege was caused by the department’s staff or its contractors. That notification would explain the importance of obtaining legal counsel, list the employment status of any staff members named by the claimant, and provide the statute of limitations for filing claims in the state in which the claim arose if the claim involves a VA contractor. CBO assumes that the bill will be enacted near the start of fiscal year 2021.

ONE way VA "tricks Veterans" is because the Veteran often does not know that a person treating them is a contractor, not a VA employee.  

(This is a big deal, for example, if you file an 1151 claim, only to find out that you were malpracticed by a contractor, not a VA employee..  )

It sounds like a good thing for Veterans, not so good for the VA.
