On June 6, the VA began implementation of the flawed MISSION Act. Trump’s VA healthcare privatization campaign will accelerate when the MISSION Act and its new access regulations for the Veterans Community Care Program go into effect. This change will encourage millions of veterans enrolled in VA healthcare to seek care outside the VA system with private sector doctors and hospital.
Packaged under the guise of giving veterans more choices, it is actually a gigantic shift of veterans out of the Veterans healthcare system and into private health care. Touted as cost effective, the plan actually continues to strip the VA of funds and directing them towards private care and corporations.
