Veterans' Health Care and Benefits The House Veterans' Affairs Committee held a hearing on ways to improve health care services for veterans. The hearing began with members voting to subpoena Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald in order to get documents related to cost overruns at a VA hospital under construction in Aurora, Colorado. Then, Nancy Schlichting and Dr. Delos Cosgrove, chair and vice chair of the Commission on Care, testified on the findings of the board’s two-year investigation into ways to improve health care services provided by the Veterans Affairs Department. The commission was created by Congress in 2014, and dissolved on August 6, 2016, when the final report and two dissents from board members who did not concur with the majority’s findings were released. Among the board’s recommendations for the VA was a proposed expansion of access to private practice doctors not working directly for the VA health system, which some Democrats worried could have significantly increased costs. close
