The sad truth is Defense Contractors get the lions share and the rest of us gets the crumbs.<quoted text>
And you think the Army medical program is competent? My psoriatic arthritis (Phil McKelson's disease) was misdiagnosed by incompetent Army doctor after incompetent Army doctor for 14 years!!!
Oh, they claimed that in just three short month I came down for four different and distinct medical conditions to include tendinitis of the elbows, bursitis of shoulders, Chondromalacia of the knees and possible degenerative arthritis of the knees. When I asked them what was causing the pain in my feet, ankles, hands, wrists, neck, back, etc. they said they did not see anything to include the small skin lesions which were psoriasis!
It took a BLACK civilian dermatologist only 15 minutes to diagnose both the psoriasis and the psoriatic arthritis but a dozen stupid, incompetent Army doctors could not with 14 years of medical history.
Oh, I have been trying to update my VA disability rating and it has taken me over a year and a half to get to see a rheumatologist. ObamaCare is already the VA rule and give it a few more years and you to will get the same medical that the vets get.
I agree with you. It is shameful you have to wait for a rheumatologist specialist for that long in the United States.
If a Congress person gets sick He or She gets a Specialist right away.
Or if you are still in active duty with a high rank. LOL
The problem is the prostitutes in Congress underfund our Men and Women in uniform. They always have and always will.
They are only good at lip service.
They have no problems spending $Billions and $Billions on weapon systems that do not work, as long as they keep the CEOs happy.
Our military does have some of the very best doctors in the world on the battlefield.
We certainly need more of them here.
Sorry to hear about your health problems.
