Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 15, 2022

The law was the latest congressional response to the scandal that erupted in 2014, when Veterans Affairs facilities across the country were found to be manipulating data to make it look like veterans were receiving timely care. In reality, veterans were waiting months to be seen by their doctors, and federal investigators said those delays contributed to their deaths. The Mission Act sought to remedy the problem by allowing veterans to seek care outside VA for a broad range of reasons " including when wait times are too long at VA " and making VA pay for that coverage. When the law first took effect in 2019, VA created a MissionAct.Va.Gov link to educate veterans about their options, explain eligibility requirements and provide links to community health providers.

But in the late summer or early fall of 2021, that link suddenly directed veterans to a page called "Choose VA," which encouraged veterans to use VA for their health care. VA also buried the link " it's no longer visible on the front page or the main health care page.

no, the Veteran's Choice Act started that, before the Mission Act.
that "community care" part of it has not changed, except to make it slightly harder to access.

the VA provides healthcare in part or in whole to less than half the Veteran population.
of those, fwiw, about 8% also get dental.

If the government doesn't want to honor it's commitment to those that served, there's an easy solution.

Don't make so many of the vets.

As usual, Boaz is an angry little man when his socialist benefits get threatened.
