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.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
