Editorial offers balanced look at VA healthcare story
As a veteran and retired Army Medical Department leader, I commend Modern Healthcare for the May 26 editorial “Beyond the theatrics of the VA scandal,” p. 24). It does a good job balancing the story of high-quality VA healthcare with the frustration of an ever-increasing and aging eligible beneficiary population. There will be much more to learn, regret and discuss as more information is gleaned and released. My wish is that those discussions are as levelheaded as this editorial.
