Concerning VA Policy on Priority 8 Veterans Before the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs United States House of Representatives

June 20, 2007
It is VVA’s unwavering position that the VA health care system should be re-opened to Priority 8 veterans. The decision to close the system to new Priority 8s in January of 2003 was supposed to be a temporary palliative for a system that was hemorrhaging, a system that was unable to provide, VA officials argued, high-quality health care for an influx of new Priority 8s. But temporary quickly morphed into permanent – and we now wonder if this was the intent of the Administration at the time – because no VA planning document we’ve seen since accounts for new Priority 8s entering the system.
