GAO provided information on health care reform legislation, focusing on the proposed reforms to the veterans health care system.

GAO found that: (1) although many legislative proposals have been introduced to reform the nation's health care system, only the Health Security Act contains specific proposals for restructuring the veterans' health care system; (2) the Health Security Act would authorize the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to establish managed care plans; (3) the Health Security Act contains several new financing mechanisms to help offset the costs of VA health plans; and (4) several legislative amendments have been approved to provide for the specialized treatment and rehabilitative needs of disabled veterans.
