A sincere "Thank You."
Veterans from Tennessee have defended our country with distinction and honor. But all too often they come home to a system that does not provide them the care they need and deserve. As I work to make government more effective, I will fight every day to make sure Tennessee’s Veterans have access to programs and services that actually meet their needs.
The Veterans Benefits Administration offers a variety of benefits and services to spouses, children, and parents of service-members and Veterans who are deceased or totally and permanently disabled by a service-connected disability. Major benefits include:
The Veterans Health Administration is America’s largest integrated health care system and serves nine million enrolled Veterans each year. Eligible Veterans have access to primary care and specialty care services to address individual needs like women’s health and mental health.

- Community Care - For Veterans eligible for VA health care, VA’s goal is to provide Veterans with the care they need at the right time, at the right place, from the right provider. In some cases, Veterans may need to receive care from a local community care provider, paid for by VA.
