Veterans having to fight for healthcare
This summer one of our clients was in my office. She served our country in the United States Army. A soldier. However, on this particular day she felt helpless.
All she wanted was for the Veteran Hospital to approve a test that had been ordered. Without communication or redress, they were refusing. I felt her frustration. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a whole lot I could do for her even as her attorney. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to storm in. Demand tests be done. Tout her service to our country. Argue for her right to treatment as a veteran. The beauracy there is so deep, the best advice I had for our client on this particular day was to write a letter to her congressman.
Is this the best healthcare that we can provide for our veterans? I certainly hope not. Our veterans deserve the best. At our law firm, we are willing to fight for veterans. Goodness knows, they’ve been fighting for us.
