Keeping Veterans Healthy

The Veterans Health Administration, which serves nine million vets, has come under fire for long delays in providing services and reimbursing clinicians, and fixes are clearly needed. But former Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin got a lot of pushback when he argued against privatizing the $200 billion system. Everyone agrees that the veterans who sacrificed for their country should get timely, quality health care, but they disagree about how best to fix the largest integrated health system in the US. How do we ensure the health of our veterans? What is the right role for the private sector in providing health care to those who serve?
