An Arizona Veteran's Affairs Medical Center kept a secret patient waiting list to disguise the extraordinary wait times that resulted in the deaths of at least 40 patients.
Initially, patients would be placed on the secret waiting list and then moved to an officially reported on just before seeing a doctor. This created the appearance of an efficient operation without all they pesky costs associated with actually providing service on time. In some cases, patients who actually waited nearly two years for care were thus shown as seeing a doctor within 14 days.
Behold the tip of the socialist healthcare iceberg.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_rationing_in_the_United_States James Henry, this is for you, you must not read much. You do have a choice, unless you can provide evidence that suggest otherwise. Before the affordable care act, you did not have a choice, you could only hope that a insurance provider would cover you and not deny you based on pre-existing conditions. Now, every plan must have basic coverage and preventative measures. Nice try at degrading my character, cause that all you can do. How about coming up with some solid facts. And have some respect sir, I did not like Bush but you don’t see me calling him names. You wonder why republicans and tea party get no respect, because you have none. Try this, flows off the tongue great….PRESIDENT OBAMA.. If you want to investigate something, find the WMD’s that we went to get in IRAQ that killed over 22,000 americans and 250,000 innocent civilians…..and got us 8 trillion dollars in debt.
my husband is a vietnam vet. It took him over a year to get into the system. He finally got to see a back specialist after over 2 years.
HE SHOULD BE TRIED FOR MURDER, TRAITOR,AND TREASON. IMPEACH THE BLACK MUSLIM SOB. I AM ONE OF THOSE VETS THAT MIGHT HAVE TO WAIT SOMEDAY. REGARDS A RETIRED MARINE.
friend of mine had a virus, he went to the VA they told him to use a phone on a wall to call from the Stockton Ca VA, to Oakland to make an appointment. They set his time Two weeks from then. He couldn’t wait went to the Emergency in his town after he had been told if it was a real emergency they would handle it, He was showing signs of pneumonia and was instantly put on meds etc.. Later he got a bill from the hospital after they took all his info for the VA later then sent him the bill. He called they said let us have it, he did thinking they would handle it. After some time he got a letter stating his bill went into collections. I’m not certain if it got taken care of or not but it goes to show what really goes on. He was never afraid to go to the VA either in the beginning. Things have changed I have to reason with him most of the time now. 🙁
It’s another way for the government to get rid of all the Veterans. After ten years of waiting, I gave up.
The VA employs some excellent doctors but just not enough of them to deal with the numbers. The doctors really want to help but have no assistance, help or tools. They are run by these manager (monkeys) with much less education who want numbers and care less about specialty and quality care. It’s a broken system Allocating funds to the clinicians to help make better choices for what the pts need would be more helpful. The management does not know what the Vets need and therefore the entire system is broke. The clinicians are at the whim of these idiots. The people who lose are the Vets who have spent their yrs serving this country and also the clinicians who went to school forever in the hopes of being able to actually help their pts clinically and thru research. Start looking at the administration managers and hire more providers to deal with the astronomical influx.
Ha ha ha now it hits the news because of a vet . Crusader clinic in Rockford il has ben doing this for years and ins companies have ben getting billed for nothing done but blood pressure and temp taking but most important thing p**s dropped don’t see the blood just the marijunana I smoke instead of taking all there pills that was killing me faster .
