In response to concerns about access to medical care at many Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals and clinics across the country in spring 2014,1 Congress passed the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 (VACAA, P.L. 113-146, as amended). On August 7, 2014, President Obama signed the bill into law. Among other things, the act establishes a new program that would allow the VA to authorize care for enrolled veterans through the Veterans Choice Program if they meet the eligibility requirements.
