Volunteer Health Services Act Moves Toward Final House Vote
A quick “kudos” goes out to the Missouri House Health Policy and Rules Committees, both of which in the last week voted to send the Volunteer Health Services Act, or VHSA, to the full House for a final vote. The Senate passed the bill earlier this year, meaning that if the legislation passes without any amendments through the House, it will go to the governor, who I expect will sign it.
I have talked about the VHSA many times in the past. Missouri should not stand in the way of doctors from other states who want to provide free health services to our citizens, and it is heartening to see such a simple reform to our licensing laws so close to being enacted.
