The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 Highlights

Capitol-SenateThe Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 was negotiated and completed between the Senate and House of Representatives July 28, 2014.

The bill highlights requirements on how to improve access and quality care for veterans, how to expand VA’s internal capacity to provide timely care to veterans, how to resolve real accountability for incompetent or corrupt senior managers and the requirement to improve educational benefits for veterans and dependents.

According to current CBO estimates, the bill would result in nearly $17 billion in spending over a 10-year period, with 10-year offsets totaling roughly $5 billion, making it less expensive than previous VA reform packages passed by the House and Senate.
