June 11, 2024 – Brookfield, Wisconsin – On Monday, June 24, 2024, representatives from Senator Tammy Baldwin’s office will visit Precision Healing and Wellness, a local clinic that provides holistic care to veterans, to hear firsthand how recent changes in the Veterans Affairs (VA) community care services and authorization processes are impacting veterans. The meeting aims to raise awareness about the cuts in community care services and to advocate for veteran patients whose voices have not been adequately heard.

Under the Mission Act, veterans were previously allowed to receive community care services, including chiropractic, massage therapy, and acupuncture. However, recent changes by the VA have led to significant reductions in these services, leaving veterans without the necessary care they had been receiving. These changes were implemented without prior notice to the veterans, preventing them from planning accordingly and disrupting their continuity of care.

“The VA has stated that they will review each case individually, but we have not seen a single veteran maintain their continuity of care,” said Novia Gscheidmeier, Owner and Licensed Acupuncturist at Precision Healing and Wellness. “Despite providers and primary care physicians presenting cases for medical necessity, there appears to be a lack of interest from the VA review team, which seems to function more like an insurance company rather than a supportive entity for veterans.”

Precision Healing and Wellness initiated the meeting with Senator Baldwin’s office out of deep concern for the well-being of veteran patients. “We care about our veterans and believe their voices deserve to be heard,” Gscheidmeier added. “This meeting is crucial in highlighting the challenges veterans face and advocating for the restoration of essential community care services.”

Veterans and community members are invited to attend the meeting in person at Precision Healing and Wellness, located at 17040 W Greenfield Ave Ste. 6, Brookfield, WI 53005.
