Why do veterans get the crappiest health care? For example, I as a disabled veteran have to go to a VA clinic/hospital for medical care, while my wife as my beneficiary with VA benefits can go to any provider she chooses, and she does not choose a VA clinic. If you want a foretaste of Government controlled health care (Obamacare) just hang around a VA Medical Center for a day.

If you want a foretaste of Government controlled health care (Obamacare) just hang around a VA Medical Center for a day.`````````````At least you can see a health professional, and get well. Try living with aches and pains because you can't get health insurance. The operation is 20k to 50k. I understand what you are saying, but don't feel sorry for you.

wecandoit: I don't agree with you as I use the VA with success. Tricare is for those who don't use the VA medical centers so you comments are off base of the intention of this article. United Health Care is doing a less then stellar job at administrating Tricare which was doing fine before they got their hands on it.

ewerner - have you heard of free speech? Your comments are off base for the purpose of society. The point is that the VA does not do a good job running a health care system for veterans and their families so how is the federal government going to run a system for the whole country?

Tricare members are receiving letters stating that medications that are compounded will no longer be covered. I have used these medications for year and now have to change and it is because United Healthcare rules are being forced upon us that have Tricare. No regard for what is the best for the patient it's all about cutting expenses and our earned benefits.
