VA Exposed For ‘Cutting Corners’ When Picking Health Care Providers For Veterans, Again

Recommended Posts

Vet's need to be aware of this info. It could mean the difference between healing and living a healthy life -vs- dying at the hands of an unqualified quack.

 

Benjamin Krause usually helps a lot in the VR&E arena, but he does keep his eyes open to some good info.

 

A government investigation showed many providers were ineligible to participate in the VA community care program. Ineligible providers are not supposed to be included in the referral system and are therefore unqualified for the role for some reason or another.

But they were included, anyway. An estimated 1,600 ineligible providers were identified.

This problem of VA improperly using certain providers to give care to veterans is not new.

In 2019, VA was caught using unqualified doctors to treat veterans within his facilities. In 2015, VA was caught using unqualified doctors and nurses to diagnose traumatic brain injury.

I read this and noticed they focused solely on community care providers, but failed to admit the same regarding their own providers. It's like they are trying to find excuses to present community care as being inferior to their own providers.

be nice if they provided a list so you could go check if you were involved in this botch job. 

Years ago, a VA provider administered an overdose injection and complaining, they simply transferred that employee to a different clinic and implemented some clinic policy changes. Fortunately, no permanent damage and I recovered. Still stinks though...
