Veterans complaints

Thomas Gorski

Heard on the street…

The Academy has been hearing stories about a growing number of complaints

from veterans that the quality of their prosthetic care and access to

ABC-certified practitioners has been severely affected by VA decisions to

contract solely on a cost basis.

The Academy would like to gather information from practitioners concerning

specific examples of problems you may have had in either securing a contract

or in losing existing VA patients because the regions have contracted with

other providers on the basis of agreements for lower reimbursement levels.

If you have had such experiences, would you please write a letter to the

Academy that details those events. The letter should be factual and should

relate to events that have occurred within the last two years.
