The Veterans Affairs MISSION ACT of 2018

Johnson & Associates recently received exciting news about what the Department of Veterans Affairs "Mission Act of 2018" can do for all qualified veterans.  Some of the funding in the Mission Act will actually be used to allow veterans to have full coverage at hospitals other than the VA hospital, and will cover the cost in full as long as they were transported to that hospital by ambulance.  This is a win-win situation for all because the VA is limited in the scope of their treatment, frequently lies a great distance from the veterans, and often can't service all of their clientele.  The Mission Act of 2018 allows for the veteran to be treated at the closest hospital as long as it is an emergency and the VA has funding to pay the costs.  It also reduces the cost of the ambulance ride.  

Again, this is very exciting news for veterans, their families, and the professionals who work with them.  More details are available through the following link to Veterans Administration frequently asked questions:
