Opinion: Veterans need care close to home
The doctors office called me and wanted to set up an appointment for a colonoscopy as a follow-up on my procedure three years ago. I reminded them that I was a veteran with Tri-Care insurance through the VA, then I was asked if I had any other insurance. When I said I didn't, she said, "Oh, we don't take VA patients anymore."I got the same cold shoulder from the Northeast Georgia Medical Center when they decided they weren't taking care of the veterans anymore.
