The 2014 Veterans Choice Program (VCP) allows eligible Veterans to receive health care from non-VA providers in certain circumstances, such as distance from their VA facility or long waits for appointments. CHERP Investigator Susan Zickmund, PhD, is leading a fast-track study to understand the impact of the VCP on Veterans’ satisfaction with VA Care, their Choice Act care, and their Choice act pharmacy benefits. Drawing on the research infrastructure for the current VA Merit study--Disparities in Satisfaction with Care (DISC)--the new DISC Choice evaluation will interview Veterans and VA employees about their satisfaction with VCP.
