Sec Shulkin planned to use the 3.2 billion in savings from changing Unemployability to fund the new CARE plan that will replace the CHOICE plan. So if he has taken that off the table he must now find it somewhere else. Also VA is going to need to pay for new medical records system which we have no idea how much that will cost because “Sec Shulkin selected Cerner using a non-compete waiver with no negotiations held yet on what the new record system might cost the Veterans Affairs.”
