August 1, 2014 -- This week on "Fed Access", host Derrick Dortch interviews Linda Rix, co-CEO of FastYeti Incorporated, about plans to reform the .Department of Veterans Affairs.

Rix will give her thoughts on newly confirmed Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald, and a 17 billion dollar reform bill making its way through Congress, that would help veterans avoid long waits for health care, and make it easier to fire some of the agency's senior executives.

She will also talk about what the V-A can do to improve its claims process and will give us a update on a new website she launched to help veterans get the benefits they need.

The website is vetsHQ.com, and helps veterans navigate their way through a range of 75 benefits programs offered by the V-A.

Veterans who visit the website, will fill out an online questionnaire, which helps determine the benefits they are eligible for, and a certified Veterans Service Officer will assist in the filing of the claim and move it forward through the V-A.
