BERLIN, N.H. (AP) - Three members of New Hampshire’s congressional delegation are hosting a forum about the Veterans Choice program and two new veterans’ health clinics in the North Country.

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte and Rep. Ann McLane Kuster are being joined by Veterans Administration officials at the forum Friday at White Mountain Community College in Berlin.

Shaheen and Ayotte hosted a similar forum in May at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics in Manchester.

Under the Veterans Choice program, New Hampshire card holders are able to get care from non-VA doctors if they have been waiting more than 30 days for an appointment at a VA center or live more than 20 miles away from a VA medical care facility.
