An article in the October 2019 AARP stated that nearly a third of veterans who needed emergency health care had their reimbursement claims improperly rejected by the VA. About 17,400 veterans who sought care at non-VA facilities were turned down for payment. The Office of Inspector General reported the reason for the mistakes "Rushed and slipshod processing that prioritized quantity over quality". As a Vet this really "ticks" me off. I wonder how many Senators or Congress delegates were denied any claims. No answer needed.
