When is a choice not a choice? When it’s offered by the VA. They claim vets have a choice as to where and from whom the can seek medical treatment. Ha! There’s a catch.
(There’s always a catch you know.)
You’re not eligible for the Choice Program if you live within 40 miles of a VA Hospital facility. Almost all of the VA hospitals were deliberately built in or near populous metropolitan areas. That means the vast majority of vets have no choice at all.
