House Subcommittee Discusses Prosthetics
The House Veterans Affairs’ Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation recently held a hearing to examine the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) prosthetic program and its procurement process. The subcommittee heard testimony concerning VA's proposal to change procurement processes that could result in prosthetics funding being used for other purposes.
FRA believes VA’s research must focus on improving treatments for conditions that are unique to veterans. Medical and prosthetic research is one of the most successful aspects of all VA medical programs and the Association has repeatedly requested adequate funding for the prosthetic program in testimony before the House and Senate VA Committees.
