Today, Congresswoman Lisa McClain’s (R-MI) bill, H.R. 5754, the Patient Advocate Tracker Act, passed out of the U.S House of Representatives.

The bipartisan Patient Advocate Tracker Act, which McClain introduced in October, would create an online portal where veterans can track the status of formal complaints that they file through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

“Our veterans deserve the best care possible, and when they don’t receive an adequate level of care, there needs to be an easy way for them to file a complaint and track its progress through the VA,” said Rep. McClain. “Our veterans sacrificed so much to protect our nation, and I’m thrilled the House passed this commonsense legislation to ensure they are taken care of after returning home.”
