President Trump and Secretary Shulkin Announce Veteran Telehealth Initiatives

National VFW - 8/7/2017

Yesterday, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. David J. Shulkin joined President Trump at the White House to announce an expansion of access to health care for veterans using telehealth technology. VA will now be able to deliver care to veterans in their homes regardless of if veterans and their VA doctors are located in different states. The VFW has supported legislation championed by Senators Ernst and Hirono and Congresswoman Brownley to grant VA doctors such authority and is glad VA expanded its doctor’s practice authority without congressional action. VA also announced a nationwide rollout of its Veterans Appointment Request application which enables veterans to self-schedule their VA appointments. Find out more about VA’s telehealth program.
