12 Dec Should there be more or less privatization of veterans’ healthcare?
“Trump administration is determined to expand the private sector’s role in veterans’ health care. Privatization will allow veterans to choose from a broader range of individual health care specialists. Many of these offer lower fees than other options available. With a private system, veterans could pick from a wide variety of in-network physicians and are more likely to receive care in a fast and efficient manner.
However, with a privatized system, veterans would be subject to fluctuating payments based on many different criteria. In a private network, various doctors and hospitals have varying rates for the same procedures and services. If care is shifted to the private sector, it is likely that patients will be cared for by a doctor who might be inexperienced in treating specific ailments.
