Veterans Health Care Authorization Act of 2009 (S. 252)

Woman Looking out of a Window

After being favorably reported out of the Senate Veterans Affairs committee last week, the full Senate plans to consider S. 252, the Veterans Health Care Authorization Act of 2009 in the coming days.

Among other things, the legislation authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide care to veterans with traumatic brain injury through contracts with non-VA providers when necessary.

BIAA strongly supports this legislation as it is vital to ensuring our returning service members suffering from traumatic brain injury get access to the care that they so desperately need and deserve.
