Outcome

12/18/2014--Public Law. Veterans Traumatic Brain Injury Care Improvement Act of 2014 - Amends the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 to alter the reporting requirements under the pilot program to assess the effectiveness of providing assistance to eligible veterans with traumatic brain injury to enhance their rehabilitation, quality of life, and community integration. Directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) to submit reports to the congressional veterans committees on the pilot program for each quarter occurring between January 1, 2015, and September 30, 2017. Requires each quarterly report to include for the preceding quarter: the number of individuals who participated in the pilot program, the number of individuals who successfully completed the program, the degree to which pilot program participants and their family members were satisfied with the program, and the interim findings and conclusions of the Secretary regarding the success of the program and recommendations for improving it. Requires the Secretary to include in the report the Secretary submits to the congressional veterans committees after the completion of the pilot program: an evaluation of the pilot program in light of the VA's independent living programs, including an assessment of whether  the pilot program should be incorporated into such independent living programs; and recommendations for improving the pilot program. Replaces references to "assisted living" with the term "community-based brain injury residential rehabilitative care," including rehabilitation services within the meaning of such care. Requires this Act and its amendments to be carried out using funds already available for such purposes.

H.R. 4276, the Veterans Traumatic Brain Injury Improvement Act of 2014, is a bill to extend and alter a pilot program to better help members of the military who suffer from traumatic brain injury. This legislation changes aspects of the pilot program which was extended as part of the recently enacted H.R.3230,Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014.  The program allows suffers of TBI to receive nonmilitary VA care for their injuries, and H.R.4276 increases the treatment options to ensure easier access to polytrauma centers in all VA regions.
