World MapHouse and Senate negotiators reached agreement during the weekend on a legislative package intended to stabilize the Department of Veterans Affairs’ sprawling and embattled health care system, according to people briefed on the deal. The leaders in the negotiations — Senator Bernard Sanders, a Vermont independent, and Representative Jeff Miller, a Florida Republican — plan to outline the agreement at a news conference Monday afternoon. The legislation is expected to include provisions for emergency relief that would allow veterans who live far from a V.A. facility or who face wait times that exceed a certain duration to see private doctors, and have those visits paid for by the government. The measure is also expected to set aside billions of dollars to hire new doctors and nurses; build or lease dozens of additional buildings needed to treat patients; and upgrade the department’s outdated scheduling system.

Talks on the legislation had grown acrimonious last week, particularly over the amount of spending that would be required, but lawmakers were also under enormous pressure to reach a deal before Congress begins a monthlong recess later this week. World MapOfficials on Sunday did not outline specific details of the agreement, or the cost, which is expected to be in the tens of billions of dollars. Both the House and Senate had previously passed bills that were largely for emergency relief, and the acting veterans secretary, Sloan D. Gibson, had also said that $17.6 billion would be needed over the next three years to meet current demand and hire 10,000 clinicians, acquire new locations to treat patients and upgrade the department’s information technology systems. Before it can be sent to the White House for President Obama’s signature, the legislation must be approved by a conference committee of lawmakers, and by the full House and Senate.
