Continuing the transformation of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) into a 21st century organization, the President has proposed a $163.9 billion budget, a 6.5 percent increase over Fiscal Year 2014, that will support VA's goals to expand access to health care and other benefits, eliminate the disability claims backlog, and end homelessness among Veterans. The budget includes $68.4 billion in discretionary spending, largely for healthcare, and $95.6 billion for mandatory programs - mostly disability compensation and pensions for Veterans.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has initiated a multi-faceted approach to reduce the use of opioids among America's Veterans using VA health care.
