Rennison Says Vets Need To Understand The New VA Mission Law

The Executive Director of the Dubuque County Veterans Affairs Commission says the VA Hospital in Iowa City and the Dubuque VA Clinic on the Mercy Hospital campus have an outstanding working relationship. Randy Rennison says what the Dubuque clinic can’t offer the clinic in Iowa City provides specialty care to veterans. The VA Mission Act was signed into law by President Trump recently, and Rennison says it will take some time to work out the kinks. Rennison says veterans should only go to a local emergency room if they have a life-threatening condition. If you have a stomach ache, Rennison says do not go to the ER, because the VA won’t pay for it. Work will soon begin on a new clinic in Dubuque that will serve area veterans. The clinic will be inside the old Kmart building on Dodge Street and is scheduled to open next spring.
