HR 907, introduced by Congressman Doug Collins (GA-9), improves newborn care for infants of female veterans. The bill, the Newborn Care Improvement Act, has received widespread support from veterans advocacy groups, including Veterans of Foreign Wars, Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, the Non-Commissioned Officers Association, and the Blinded Veterans Association.
Congressman Collins said:
New mothers receiving medical care from the VA should feel confident that they won’t have to wade through tough financial choices and confusing insurance options in order to obtain crucial care for their newborns.
The bipartisan bill has 18 co-sponsors including John Lewis and Rob Woodall of Georgia.
