Resolved, A commission is hereby established to examine whether or not veteran’s benefits should include medical compensation, pursuant to Section 5 of Chapter 115 of the General Laws. Said commission will review the proposal of benefits that would include payment of health care costs accumulated at a hospital not classified as a veteran’s hospital if said hospital provided services not available at said veteran’s hospital, or if the designated veteran’s hospital is more than 30 miles away from the veteran. Payment for medical services rendered to a veteran at a non-veteran hospital shall be the responsibility of veteran’s hospitals or federal veterans agencies to be determined by said commission that will examine the costs and benefits of providing medical care outside of veteran hospitals. Said commission shall report results, if any, as well as a proposal for the legislature that would enact this program, to the General Court and the House of Representatives. Said commission will report findings, if any, no later than July 1, 2006.
