President Signs Choice Extension

Today, the President signed into law an extension to the Veterans Choice Program, which ensures Veterans have continued access to an extensive network of community providers when care outside of VA is appropriate.

The extension of the Veterans Choice Program, past the original sunset date of August 2017, provides lawmakers and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) time to work diligently on the next generation of the Choice program. At TriWest, we will continue to move forward at a rapid pace to provide the much-needed elasticity to VA to ensure our nation's Veterans receive the health care they need in their communities.

"This is good news for our nation's Veterans for whom we are privileged to serve," said Dave McIntyre, President and CEO, TriWest Healthcare Alliance. "At TriWest, we remain flexible and committed to meeting the needs of our nation's Veterans and VA as the Choice program continues to progress."
