On Jan. 5, 2021, the Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 (Isakson-Roe Act) was signed into law. The act set out to improve the benefits and quality of care Veterans receive from VA in various ways.
For Veterans seeking care, the Isakson-Roe Act addresses the mixed needs of some Veterans who face challenges when accessing and receiving the right kind of care. Women Veterans, Veterans who have experienced intimate partner violence, and Veterans experiencing homelessness have unique health care needs. Sometimes, they require specialists with tools and resources that may not be widely available.
