"I supported The Veterans Access to Care Act (H.R. 4810) because I believe it is essential to allow the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to expand access to private healthcare facilities in order to better serve our veterans and conduct an independent, external audit of VA's healthcare practices," said Perlmutter. "Veterans who endure long wait times or do not live near a VA facility should have access to care now, as we continue working to fix the widespread problems at the VA.  The bottom line is veterans' health should not suffer due to the bureaucratic and systemic problems uncovered at the VA.  We must work quickly and efficiently to resolve the many issues plaguing our current VA system so we can serve all of our nation's veterans with the best care possible."
