There are a lot of small improvements happening to support the troops after they come home; not reported significantly, since no drama.
Check out the basics from the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America:
law on Thursday. The Department of Veterans Affairs can now reimburse
veterans enrolled in VA health care for the remaining cost of emergency
treatments if the veteran's outside insurance only covers part of the
cost. Previously, the VA only reimbursed veterans or paid outside
hospitals if the veteran had no outside health insurance.
“For veterans with limited insurance, a trip to the emergency room
should not result in financial ruin,” said Chairman Akaka, who
introduced the bill in the Senate last year. “With this new law, VA
will be positioned to help veterans who are enrolled in VA care whose
insurance does not cover the full cost of emergency treatment.”
The Veterans’ Emergency Care Fairness Act, signed into law by
President Obama last night, will enable the Department of Veterans
Affairs to reimburse veterans enrolled in VA health care for the
remaining cost of emergency treatment if the veteran has outside
insurance that only covers part of the cost. Previously, VA could
reimburse veterans or pay outside hospitals directly only if a veteran
has no outside health insurance.
