Veterans' Health Care
DIANE Publishing, Apr 1, 2011 - 36 pages
Funding for VA health care is determined by Congress in the annual appropriations process. Prior to this process, VA develops a budget estimate of the resources needed to provide health care services to eligible veterans. The Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act of 2009 requires an assessment of whether the funding requested for VA health care in the President's budget requests submitted to Congress in 2011, 2012, and 2013 is consistent with VA's estimates of the resources needed to provide health care services. This report describes: (1) how the VA develops its health care budget estimate; and (2) how VA's health care budget estimate is used in the President's budget request to Congress. Illus. A print on demand report.
