ASCA Endorses Veterans Deserve Better Act
This federal legislation would streamline claims reimbursement for private-sector veterans care
BY JEFF EVANS | APRIL 2018
ASCA endorses federal legislation that, if passed, would support ASCs as they serve combat veterans. The Veterans Deserve Better Act (H.R. 4783 / S. 2239), introduced by Jacky Rosen (D-NV) in the US House of Representatives and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in the US Senate, addresses claims reimbursement for care providers outside of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The measure would require non-VA provider claims to be reimbursed in 30-45 days. Bill Prentice, ASCA’s chief executive officer, issued an endorsement letter to both legislators.
