By PVA National Staff
VA recently postponed the expansion of the Caregiver Program, which was directed by the VA MISSION Act, until 2020 because the IT systems needed to support the expanded program will not be ready. This news was upsetting for many, and it has caught the attention of several members of Congress who are now asking questions. This heightened level of attention has given PVA many opportunities to discuss our goals with the Caregiver Program.
Consequently, we need your help. We need feedback from PVA members who are in the current program. Specifically, we need to know: how is it working; what kind of training did you receive when you started the program; and most important, what kinds of problems are you are experiencing with it? Your inputs will be greatly appreciated and you can send them to PVA’s National Legislative Director, Morgan Brown, at MorganB@pva.org.
