(3) In carrying out an initiative under paragraph (1), the Secretary shall ensure that facilities of the Department are able to provide a mental health or traumatic brain injury assessment to a veteran through contracting with a third-party provider or reimbursing a provider through a fee basis system when—
(A) such facilities are not able to provide such assessment to the veteran without—
(i) such contracting or reimbursement; or
(ii) teleconsultation; and
