WHAT TO DO WHEN SCREWED BY VA ?
VA is Lying to vets about our health care. They cheat us and botch our care everyday. What to do, if VA screws up YOUR health care? Veteran activist Ted Strachulski says, if VA screws you on your health care, you should file a state complaint with your STATE MEDICAL BOARD
Ted points out that if you complain to VAOIG, Patient Advocate or your Congressman, the complaint just goes right back to the people you are complaining about, and nothing happens. Been there, done that, nothing happened. But when you file a complaint with your states medical board, the person at VA who screwed up your health care is forced to respond. To work for VA, all doctors and nurses MUST have a state license from SOME state. It is federal law, that they must. Same thing with therapists and most medical technicians. To hold their federal job, they are required to have a state license from one of the fifty states. If you find out WHICH state issued their license and file a complaint against them with that states MEDICAL BOARD, there is no way for VA to cover it up, and the doctor, nurse, therapist or technician, must respond to your complaint, or loose their license, and therefore their fat cushy federal job. I have done this, it works. It is a way to force positive action from VA.
Thank you to fellow activist Ted Strachulski for jogging my memory about STATE MEDICAL BOARDS for ALL STATES.
