Policy

We provide analytical and consultative expertise to Veterans Health Administration (VHA) on policy and legislative issues. We analyze new or amended legislation to support development of regulations, policies, and/or standards covering program activities, or functions for which VHA has responsibilities. We also provide comments on applicable health reform regulations in collaboration with VA/VHA program offices. In addition, we are responsible for coordinating VHA’s role in implementing the Affordable Care Act, focusing on analyses to assess its impact on VA.
