Here we go again.

Now a whistleblower from the VA says many VA applications were destroyed intentionally in favor of VA employees apparently giving priority to Obama.Care applications.

And he claims many VA applicants may have been intentionally improperly purged by ways of "eligibility".

The man will be telling this to Congress soon.

Looks like more political micromanaging by the Administration. It never works.

When will they learn they can't just have their way all the time?

Details in the story and video below....




A Veterans Affairs whistleblower from Atlanta will testify before Congress next Tuesday about widespread destruction of applications, retaliation against whistleblowers, and people being shifted from processing VA applications last summer to working on Obamacare enrollment.

Scott Davis is a program specialist at the VA’s national Health Eligibility Center in DeKalb County, Georgia. His story was published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this past Sunday and appeared on the Neil Cavuto program on Fox News Wednesday. As opposed to previous whistleblower reports, which focus VA hospitals and getting to see doctors, Davis' revelations are about the processing of applications by VA offices.

Davis told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that health benefit applications for more than 10,000 veterans may have been improperly purged from the Health Eligibility Center's national data system. He began filing complaints in January 2014, revealing that managers were focused more on meeting goals linked to the Affordable Care Act to meet their bonus targets than processing VA applications.


There is absolutely NO reason for the VA to be processing ACA applications.

I bet the VA 'managers' were 'focused' on meeting ACA goals.

To get some more of them nice big fat bonuses while veterans were left to die.

The administration 'leaves' no man behind eh ?

How full of snip that was.

This, if true is a disgrace. A win at all costs attitude.

I hope it's not true. This will not play well anywhere.

It looks like this is past the fallback excuses of... 'It's George W Bush's fault.' , 'This is another fake scandal. ' or 'You are all racists.

So they will play the other card they have and ignore it.

Just to add, nearly 1.3 million (of the 8 million that signed up for Obamacare) are illegal aliens.

So this administration was signing up illegals while letting veterans die.

As a soon-to-be disabled veteran; this certainly explains a lot. As part of the new(ish) IDES process, service members receive their VA ratings prior to separation / retirement. The VA'S stated goal for this is 15 days; the current average for the Army is approx. 140 days. I, lucky guy that I am, somehow received ratings in *only* 60 days....I can only imagine what new applications are like for those who've been out for a bit are like.
Happy independence day!

If they provide names, they are names of symptoms only. The disease is Obama. That is where all the dirty little secrets and lies lead. Time to cure the disease and watch the symptoms simply go away.

Thank you for your service. Everyone else that reads this as well.
This article makes me physically ill. We need to take our country back before it is too late. I wish it was that easy.

back on 1 November 2013... I went to my local VA Clinic for a scheduled 1 year office visit & exam

I reported this event on a ATS Thread in the Nov-Dec timeline....

the first sentence of the VA letter sent me was this:


...It was a pleasure seeing you today for your ANNUAL ACA exam. Below is a list of future recall appointments. ... Electronically signed: Your Patient Aligned Care Team


What that letter told me (from the VA Hospital in Charleston SC) was that ACA & the VA are intertwined
so the assertion that VA applications were thrown out and ACA applications were administered/processed instead, is not as sinister but factual as it seems. The VA now operates under the guidelines of ACA, so technically the VA is no longer a stand-alone health system it is just a part of ACA


I did call to reserve a 'Lab' visit in May (as I was instructed to do - but was not reminded of on the two letters I received about my annual exam at the VA clinic, under ACA supervision)


all in all its a SNAFU, with a lot of responsibility heaped on the veteran to make appointments or follow up with Labs which were once handled by the appointment staff...(I sense they want Vets to fall into the cracks of not having follow-up care or services ~~ in a type of benign neglect by the authorities but labeled as incompetence of the Vet in not calling for follow-ups
