This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. In FY 2009, the VA provided more than 59 million prosthetic items to more than 2 million vets. After VA physicians prescribe prosthetic items, VA's Prosthetic and Sensory Aids Service (PSAS) is responsible for providing prosthetic items to vets. PSAS is also responsible for managing VA's spending for prosthetic items -- more than $1.6 billion in FY 2009. This report examined: (1) how, for FY 2005 through 2009, VA's spending for prosthetic items compared to budget estimates, and the extent to which VA reallocated funding for prosthetic items; (2) how PSAS monitors its performance in processing and providing prosthetic items to vets; and (3) the efforts VA has undertaken to improve PSAS's performance. Charts and tables.
