Health VA Policy Lead, McLean, VA and Washington, DC

Our client is seeking a Health VA Policy Lead for a direct hire opportunity in both McLean, VA and Washington, DC.

Job Description

Our client is currently seeking a Leader with Healthcare delivery and payment experience to support VA’s implementation of the Mission Act of 2018.


The Maintaining Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks (MISSION) Act will drive systemic changes to delivery of Veterans healthcare through realignment of services to support choice, coordination of care, facilities and personnel.  Congress sought to drive changes while simultaneously supporting Veterans choice of providers and access to care.  The legislation was informed by various reviews, most notably, the Commission on Care report.   The MISSION Act compels significant activities to achieve compliance within one year of its enactment on June 6, 2018.  These activities are primarily being undertaken by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) with support from offices across the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and independent contractors.  While these activities are underway, defining how they integrate and support the broader strategic change must be pursued in parallel.  The legislation requires VA to develop a strategy towards achieving a high performing healthcare network and conduct quadrennial review. Further, the Secretary is required to submit a strategic plan to the appropriate Congressional committees by June 6, 2019, that specifies a 4-year forecast of:

The strategic plan is intended to address how the healthcare delivery system has addressed operational deficiencies as identified by numerous external studies and reports.  Most notable are the recommendations of the Commission on Care issued in 2015 and the findings of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) which have designated the system as high risk.
