From the document: "The Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) medically underserved facilities initiative began in fiscal year 2019 to address the needs of veterans whose requests for care exceed the facility’s ability to meet those needs in a timely manner. VA developed and implemented models to identify medical facilities that were underserved for primary care and mental health services. In fiscal year 2022, VA (1) ranked all VA medical facilities from most to least underserved, (2) designated five facilities as the most underserved for primary care and five medical facilities as the most underserved for mental health, and (3) required these facilities to develop action plans to address access needs."
