President Obama signs Veterans' Emergency Care Fairness Act
Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Daniel K. Akaka (D-HI) praised President Barack Obama's signing of the Veterans' Emergency Care Fairness Act of 2009.
"For veterans with limited insurance, a trip to the emergency room should not result in financial ruin," said Akaka, who introduced the bill in the Senate last year. "With this new law, VA will be positioned to help veterans who are enrolled in VA care whose insurance does not cover the full cost of emergency treatment."
