The Veteran Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017 became law on August 23, 2017 (Pub L. 115-55). It is also known as the Appeals Modernization Act (AMA). You can read the law in full on Congress.gov.
The AMA serves to design the VA disability appeals process in order to provide veterans, their families, and their survivors with increased choice in handling disagreements with VA’s decisions. Furthermore, it sets forth specific elements that must be addressed in VA’s comprehensive plan, including: implementing the new appeals system; timely processing under the new appeals system; and monitoring the implementation of the new appeals system to include regular progress reporting of AMA metrics and goals.
