I would like to thank the VA Waco for processing my claim after 395 days. As a Republic of Vietnam combat veteran, all I need now is health care. I was in Dallas last week and waited 5 hours for an X-ray and could not get one because the machine was broke.
I had to wait 6 months at Fort Worth for rehab. I was extended another physical rehab opportunity 1 year ago and VA forgot about me. And oh by the way, my travel pay was literally stolen for a few years. Disabled veterans get travel pay because of the difficulty in traveling to health care places. Yes, you can see the list of those stealing travel pay because their names are posted at the travel pay window.
My provider doctor left VA and his patients were divided amoung the other doctors. My new doctor got an extra 500 patients. If lucky I get to see my new doctor every 7 months even with my serious health conditions.
Veterans are a unique case. We suffered on the battle field and came home with disabilities. I did not ask for any of this. I defended my country above and beyond the call to duty. Insurance is hard to get with preexisting conditions. Over the years I have been a very high at-risk group.
The VA has many fine employees, but the care is rationed care. Go figure.
