Allows veterans who request an appeal hearing with the Board of Veterans' Appeals (BVA) to attend from any location using video and audio technology on a secure Internet platform that would be developed by VA. Under current law, veterans who apply for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may appeal a decision on that application to BVA, a VA organization that reviews claims decisions. Veterans who appeal may request a hearing at BVA and may attend the hearing in person at the BVA headquarters in Washington, D.C., or by video teleconference from a VA regional office. The bill also requires VA to provide a report to the Congress on its implementation of the requirement to facilitate such tele-hearings.
