Travel pay for Vets coming to med appts - Refurb the system

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Travel pay should not be authorized for Vets locally attending their appointments. For people who choose not to live near a VA they should authorize only 2 travel pays a year and no more.


Travel pay should be authorized when going from one state to another for referred care or one VA to another for referred care, but we should not be paying people to come and see their doctor. This is an abuse of our system and we could use that money for HEALTHCARE not travel.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
