VA’s Audit Documents Delays

“A nationwide audit of Department of Veterans Affairs health care facilities found that about 57,000 patients have been waiting more than three months for appointments, while nearly 64,000 others have been enrolled in the system for a decade but have still not been seen by doctors,” reports the New York Times.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the VA internal audit also found “70% of facilities visited used an alternative to official appointment schedules.”

This bureaucratic, union-run mess is what all our medical care may look like in a few years.
