H.R. 5501: Get Veterans a Doctor Now Act

Title: Get Veterans a Doctor Now Act

Introduced: Jun 16, 2016 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. Beto O’Rourke [D-TX16]

Status: Referred to Committee - Referred to the Subcommittee on Health.

Summary: Get Veterans a Doctor Now Act This bill authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to offer a contingent physician's appointment to a person who, upon completion of a post-graduate training program, completes a residency program within two years after the VA offer. Eligibility requirements for a VA physician's appointment, including a contingency appointment, are revised to require completion of a residency program rather than an internship. The VA shall ensure that a recruiter or other similar official of each Veterans Integrated Service Network visits, at least annually, each allopathic and osteopathic teaching institution with a graduate medical education program within the Network to recruit individuals for the Veterans Health Administration.
