WASHINGTON – Sen. Amy Klobuchar is co-sponsoring the bipartisan Department of Veterans Affairs Billing Accountability Act.
“Too many veterans are receiving outdated or incorrect bills from the VA,” Klobuchar said. “Some veterans have even reported receiving medical bills years after they received care.”
The bill would give the VA the authority to waive veterans’ copayment requirements for medication, care, or certain services if the copayment notification was received more than 180 days after the appointments.
John Hoeven is also a co-sponsor of the bill.
