Grassley On New VA Health Care Law 

Iowa Senator Charles Grassley is backing a provision that’s included in the VA Health Care Bill that was recently signed ino law by President Trump.. The VA Mission Act includes a provision cosponsored by Grassley that would help VA health care professionals provide telemedicine services to veterans and service members in rural communities. Grassley says the provision will improve the VA’s health care delivery system and provide veterans with more choice and fewer barriers to receiving health care. The provision also gives the Secretary of Veterans Affairs more flexibility to do their job. The provision to the VA Mission Act was authored by Iowa’s other Senator Joni Ernst. The measure passed in the House in May by an overwhelming bipartisan margin before it passed in the Senate.
