Dr. King Says Veterans Choice Program Not Working

“I am terribly disturbed by the VA’s inability to fix this problem,” Dr. King said in a statement to the news media in response to an Associated Press report of continued lengthy delays for Texans seeking care from Veterans Affairs health clinics. “The Veterans Choice Program, which is supposed to allow our veterans to seek care from community physicians, is not working. Our veterans are confused and don’t know how to use that program. … We have many, many private-sector physicians in Texas who would gladly provide care for veterans. The physicians of Texas respectfully ask Secretary McDonald to demonstrate his vaunted problem-solving abilities by cutting through the VA’s bureaucratic red tape so this can happen.”
