PSA-Texas VA Health Care

Gov. Perry Launches PSA to Assist Texas Veterans with VA Health Care
Texas medical providers answer Gov. Perry’s call to help veterans

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 • Austin, Texas • Press Release

 

Gov. Rick Perry has launched a public service announcement (PSA) to raise awareness of state resources available to help Texas veterans navigate the Veterans Administration (VA) health care system. Texas has increased staffing for the Texas Veterans Hotline in response to failures by the VA system to adequately care for our nation’s veterans.

“Texas has a long and proud tradition of taking care of those who protect and defend our freedom,” Gov. Perry said. “As Texans and Americans, it is our responsibility to step up where others have fallen short and to make sure our veterans know we are grateful for their service and will honor the commitments our nation has made to them. It’s my sincere hope the confirmation of Robert McDonald as VA Secretary begins the process of fixing this broken agency and the broken promises to our veterans.”

In addition to increasing staff for the Texas Veterans Hotline, on June 12, 2014, Gov. Perry asked Texas hospitals and medical clinics to open their doors to Texas veterans who have faced bureaucratic challenges in accessing health care through the VA. More than 300 hospitals and clinics have responded across the state, but cannot begin treating VA patients until the VA gives them authorization and ensures timely reimbursement of the cost of care provided.

The Texas Cable Association and Texas Association of Broadcasters will air the PSA on their respective member networks and on-line throughout the state. The PSA directs veterans to call the Texas Veterans Hotline at 1-800-252-8387 (VETS) for assistance with accessing VA health care benefits.
