Omission in Text

JAMA. 2017;317(19):2021. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.5168

In the Capitol Health Call brief entitled “Vets Still Face Challenges in Receiving Timely Medical Care,”1 published in the April 11, 2017 issue of JAMA, there was an omission in the text. The last paragraph should have read, “Sen John McCain (R, Arizona), cosponsor of a bill to extend the Choice Program until its money runs out, projected to be in early 2018, said if the program is not extended, ‘more than a million veterans will lose their ability to visit a community provider, the VA system will once again become overwhelmed, and veterans will go back to the prescandal days of unending wait times for much-needed care.’” This article was corrected online.
