Hospitals seeing rise in veterans seeking care
Hospitals in Madelia and St. Peter have seen upticks in veterans seeking care this year after a new law opened up more health care options for patients with Veterans Administration benefits. The MISSION Act, signed into law by President Donald Trump in June 2018, established a new community care program allowing VA benefits to cover care outside VA clinics. The law included an urgent care benefit, making it possible for veterans to seek non-emergency care for some conditions at hospitals or clinics in the VA network.
