The FAH submitted a letter to the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Conference Committee today to express support for a few key policies and suggest some modifications that would improve health care for America’s service men and women.

The letter highlights the FAH’s support for a prompt pay amendment, originally authored by Senators Johanns (R-NE) and Warner (D-VA), that would be an important step in ensuring access to the vital care our country’s retired service members so deserve.

FAH hospitals are committed to assisting those who have served their country to receive quality and timely health care. Our hospitals proudly serve veterans through the Non-VA Medical Care Program, and we support continuing efforts to increase critical access to care for America’s heroes.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to submit our comments to the Veterans’ Affairs conferees and applaud their commitment to improving the health of our nation’s veterans.
