Appeals Modernization Act Comprehensive Plan and Reporting
The Veteran Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act (AMA) of 2017 became law on August 23, 2017 (Pub L. 115-55). You can read the law in full on Congress.gov. AMA provides Veterans, their families, and their survivors with increased choice in handling disagreements with VA’s decisions.
AMA set forth specific elements that must be addressed in VA’s comprehensive plan including implementing the new appeals system, timely processing under the new appeals system, and monitoring the implementation.
As part of the process, we’re keeping Veterans and stakeholders informed though a series of periodic progress reports on our plan and regular reporting of AMA metrics and goals.
