MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - U.S. Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen are inviting New Hampshire veterans to attend a forum at Saint Anselm College to discuss the Veterans Choice Card program.

The card provides “backup” care if a veteran cannot be seen by a Veterans Affairs facility in in 30 days or if VA’s closest medical facility is challenging to access. In situations like this, Veterans are eligible to receive care outside of the VA.

Tuesday’s forum will address veterans’ health care options. The senators have expressed concerns with the VA’s roll-out of the Choice Card program in New Hampshire, which has caused confusion among veterans seeking to use the program. They also have introduced legislation to make the program permanent for veterans in states without a full a service hospital, like New Hampshire.
