LISTEN to today's show!
Suzanne will speak about:
Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans have returned home with PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, chronic pain and other injuries that put them at high risk for substance abuse and suicide.
The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) provides innovative, wholistic, and high quality care, at lower cost, because it functions as the only integrated health care system in the United States.
Federally-funded veterans’ health care is now being restructured so that billions of taxpayer dollars will flow to private doctors and for-profit hospitals with little experience treating veterans.
The VHA actually delivers care that is equal to and often superior to that received by Americans relying on private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid coverage.
Why advocates of a single-payer or “Medicare for All” system in the U.S. should help veterans and their caregivers fight VHA privatization.
