President's Welcome

Hello, and WELCOME to the website of the MOAA Uniformed Services Nurse Advocates  Virtual Chapter.  If you are concerned about Military Healthcare issues which affect Uniformed Service Members (currently serving and Reserve/Guard components, Retirees, Veterans and their families), you’ve landed at the right site. If you’re a current or past member of a Uniformed Services Nurse Corps, you’re on a great path.  We also require membership in the Military Officers Association of America, but that can be done as part of the application process at no cost.  We also charge no dues!  I invite you to join in this exciting, pioneering initiative. Our members have had interesting and diverse careers, with extraordinary expertise in many areas of nursing.  While I no longer put my hands on patients, I feel that my caring for them continues through my advocacy for healthcare-related legislation, and other important MOAA goals.

President's Update

April 2021

We have been working on preparing for what I call our Advocacy Special Time to Shine!  As you know by keeping up with MUSNAVC news and the MOAA Newsletter, that again, we need to engage with our Federal legislators using a virtual platform.  Let’s look at the bright side.  We know that our history of advocating is that we do really well as we understand the issues and especially those that are healthcare

related. 

 

Our #1 topic this year is Toxic Exposure and we’re advocating for comprehensive reform; supporting veterans with direct connection; fixing the presumptive process and instituting oversight of claims and implementation of presumptives.  Topic #2 Tricare Young Adult (TYA) HR 475 The Health Care Fairness for Military Families Act of 2021 provides for equitable health care protections as civilians have for their adult children. Topic #3 Basic Needs Allowance – addresses food insecurity especially found in junior enlisted families.  We know that many are struggling as often they don’t qualify for SNAP since BAH is considered income and they fall outside the parameters for inclusion. 

 

CLICK HERE for lots of important information.  So let’s all read, engage, advocate and report!!!

 

Cheers,   Jeri
