GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC HUMAN RESOURCES DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses the Department of Veterans Affairs VAs current plans for increasing VAs presence in Hawaii by establishing a medical center there. We have prepared it in partial response to your broader request that we assess the effects of employee-mandated health insurance on the demand for VA services. We will be reporting separately on the results of that broader review. With respect to the planned Hawaii medical center, this report discusses whether VA could increase its presence in Hawaii and provide acute and long term care services to the states veterans sooner than currently planned, VA has accurately projected its acute care bed needs in light of the Hawaii health insurance mandates, and Excess bed capacity exists at the Department of Defenses DODs Tripler Army Medical Center that could be used to meet those needs.
