Veterans Healthcare

More than 3 million veterans use a Veterans Health Administration (VHA) health facility for their medical needs. Unfortunately, while the VHA excels in some areas, it flounders in others. Despite interference by politicians seeking their agenda, we must save this valuable institution. It renders excellent care in many disciplines that cannot be duplicated in the private sector. However, it desperately needs another transformation to serve the growing veteran population. The last transformation occurred in the 1990s, and the VHA has changed much since then.

This book examines the history of the Veterans Health Administration and the scandals that have plagued it. Next, it looks at the quality of care and the differences between VHA and private care. Finally, it points out the benefits and flaws of the much-heralded Choice Program.
