Statement by VA Secretary David J. Shulkin - Congressional Approval of VA Choice Funding Legislation

Congress took an important step last night in helping the VA to continue to build an integrated system that allows Veterans to receive the best healthcare possible, whether from VA or the private sector.  The $2.1B in Choice funding ensures there will be no disruptions to quality care for our Veterans. Our Veterans have earned and deserve the best care possible and we will keep raising that bar with the help and support of our Congressional leaders.
