VA Reports Low But Wrong Numbers

Jim Fausone
Veterans Disability Lawyer

The VA is reporting that 10 % of veterans are waiting over 30 days for a medical appointment.

That number does not reflect the poll LHFV did of its veterans.  Our survey shows that 21% of the veterans are waiting over 180 days.

Veterans read the articles about VA and its reported wait times and wonder why their experiences are so different.  I would tell you that the VA numbers probably underreport the wait times. So read this article with a grain of salt.
