• Shocking VA Report: Over 300,000 Veterans Died Awaiting Care

    More than 300,000 American military veterans likely died while waiting for health care, according to a to a new Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general report issued Wednesday.

    Nearly twice as many are still waiting their applications for care to be processed, as their applications got stuck in a system that the VA has struggled to overhaul.

    Some applications, the IG report says, go back nearly two decades.

    “Serious” problems with enrollment data are making it impossible to determine exactly how many veterans are actively seeking health care from the VA, and how many were, the IG report says.VA workers incorrectly marked thousands of unprocessed health-care applications as completed and may have deleted 10,000 or more electronic “transactions” over the past five years.

    The VA’s acting inspector general ‘s report came in response to a whistleblower who said more than 200,000 veterans with pending applications for VA health care were likely deceased.
