Excerpt
Chairman McHugh and Chairman Moran and Members of the Subcommittees: Thank you for the opportunity to address an issue that is among the highest priorities of this Administration. One of President Bush?s campaign promises was to invest in health care, and a component of that promise was to better coordinate the programs and benefits of the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This commitment was first described weeks after the inauguration in the President?s Blueprint for New Beginnings FY 2002 budget document. A few months later, President Bush issued an Executive Order to create The Presidential Task Force to Improve Health Care Delivery for Our Nation?s Veterans to ensure that all options of coordination would be explored. At the same time, we released the FY 2002 President?s Management Agenda, where coordination of DoD and VA programs and systems was one of 14 government-wide initiatives. Finally, the recently released FY 2003 Budget incorporated this priority. These four actions in the first year of this Administration clearly show that this President is committed to seeing progress in this area. Unlike any other Administration, we want to see results on a grand scale ? not just on an ad hoc basis - to better serve our Nation?s veterans. I would emphasize that this is not a budget cutting drill. It is an effort to ensure better access and quality of care, and a seamless transition from active service to veteran status.
