While Illegal’s Receive Healthcare 307,000 American Veterans Died Waiting For Applications To Be Processed

‘They literally died while waiting for VA to process their health care application,’ say’s Scott Davis, a program specialist at the VA Health Eligibility Center. But not the THOUSANDS of refugees and illegals Obama is flooding the United States with, oh no, they get VIP treatment.

Their food stamp and medical insurance paperwork is processed immediately.  Housing is arranged, they are given money and clothes. They are President Barack Obama’s special guests, all expanse paid for by American taxpayers.

Billions of dollars is being spent on non-Americans while our nations heroes die broken and alone.

US World Report:

According to a recent report, the Department of Veterans Affairs enrollment system has allowed more than 307,000 veterans to die before their applications were even processed. The inspector general for Veteran Affairs found that more than 800,000 records were stalled in the enrollment system when it comes to managing health care enrollment. All this data has been brought up when a whistleblower’s comments alleged a great mismanagement by the Veteran Affairs Health Eligibility Center. The staffers for the Veteran Affairs also identified staffers who incorrectly marked unprocessed applications as processed which in turn deleted an upward of 10,000 records in the past five years alone.

In one of the reported cases, a veteran applied for Veteran Affairs medical coverage in 1998 and has been in “pending” status up to the point they looked at the records, 14 years later. Another case was a veteran who passed away back in 1988 who still had an unprocessed record in 2014, 26 years after it was originally filed. CNN has investigated all these veterans’ deaths and more including highly detailed investigations in the winter of 2013 leading into 2014 about the deaths at two VA facilities, one in Georgia and one in South Carolina.

The most recent report shows a complicated system of inaccuracies with the VA’s system of managing health care enrollment data which include software glitches in the system, a lack of procedures when it comes to overseeing the records, as well as an inconsistency in identifying veterans who have passed away. The investigation goes on to state that Veterans Health Administration “has not adequately established procedures to identify individuals who have died, including those with pending health care enrollment records.” An internal investigation into the VA in 2010 found that several staffers had hidden some of the veterans’ applications in their desk to do them later, yet they were not disciplined.

As a program specialist at the VA Health Eligibility Center, Scott Davis, said that at least another thousand veterans who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan have not received adequate health care because of being wrongly placed in the system’s backlog. Many of these veterans have lost their 5 year eligibility for health care due to the delay prolonged by the misguided system the VA uses. “People who fought, and who earned the right to VA health care were never given VA health care,” Davis said. “They literally died while waiting for VA to process their health care application.” Davis said he alerted members of Congress and the VA’s inspector general about the inconsistencies in the system. After being ignored for more than a year, the VA Deputy Inspector General Linda Halliday said that “Whistleblowers have proven to be a valuable information source to pursue accountability and corrective actions in VA programs.”
