LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after the VA announced its Veterans Coordinated Access and Rewarding Experiences, or CARE, proposal to replace the VA's community care programs:
"Secretary Shulkin's proposal is a good starting point that takes into account months of our bipartisan conversations about the future of community care. I'm pleased that the VA has prioritized putting veterans and their doctors at the center of medical decisions and getting rid of a one-size-fits-all system that doesn't work for our nation's veterans. I look forward to a collaborative process between veterans, the VA and Republicans and Democrats in Congress to craft a community care system that does right by veterans."
