Ask Veterans Act
This bill directs the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to contract with an experienced non-government entity to conduct an annual survey, over a five-year period, to determine the experiences of veterans in obtaining hospital care and medical services at each VA medical facility.
Those surveys shall include questions relating to:
- a veteran's ability to obtain hospital care and medical services at the facility in a timely manner,
- the time between the date the veteran requests an appointment and the date the appointment is scheduled,
- the frequency with which scheduled appointments are canceled, and
- the quality of hospital care or medical services received.
The VA shall make the results of the surveys publicly available on the VA's Internet website.
