Today, July 2, 2019, ROA staff attended the monthly Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Veteran Service Organization (VSO)/Military Service Organization (MSO) informational breakfast. Attendance was down due to the proximity of the 4th of July holiday, but it gave the few in attendance a great opportunity to dig into what issues the VA was working.
The VA discussion was led by Richard A. Stone, M.D. who addressed those in attendance. Dr. Richard Stone serves as the Executive in Charge for Veterans Health Administration (VHA), with the authority to perform the functions and duties of the Under Secretary for Health.
The discussion centered on how VA was implementing the new MISSION Act which is replacing the former community program, the Choice Act.
