Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs held a hearing on legislation to improve veterans’ access to quality care, including a bill to update the Veterans Choice Program and the Veterans E-Health and Telemedicine Support (VETS) Act, a bill co-authored by Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA) and Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson (R-PA) to expand access to telemedicine at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

“Our top priority must be to provide veterans with the best care possible, as timely as possible,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “That means a modern and innovative VA, care in the community when it makes the most sense for veterans, and leveraging the rapid advancement of technology in all aspects of healthcare delivery. I look forward to continuing to work together with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure the VA healthcare system best serves our nation’s veterans.”
