A bill that could expand the way military veterans can access healthcare has gone to President Trump.  The VA Mission Act includes money for a program that allows some veterans to seek care from neighborhood emergency clinics and private doctors. The measure provides $5 billion to keep this “choice” program going. But it also outlines ways that more veterans could have access to private care.
