"I applaud the president for signing my bill to ensure Nevada's veterans can continue using the Veterans Choice program", Heller in a statement. "From chemotherapy to life-saving surgeries, this critical program allows Nevada's veterans to receive medical services that the VA can not provide and for veterans in rural areas to seek care closer to home". The funding will provide a major boost an existing a provision known as the Veterans Choice Program.

During the campaign, Trump pushed a plan that would allow veterans who do not live close to a VA hospital to get care from a private medical provider and have their expenses reimbursed through Medicare.

Trump praised Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin, calling him a "star" in his administration. The proposals came in the wake of the VA healthcare scandal under the Obama administration, where several hospitals across the country, most notably in Phoenix, were papering over months-long wait times for veterans seeking care.
