Over the last few years, the Veterans Affairs Health Care System has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Interminable wait times for vets seeking appointments, mold in VA hospitals, and drug dealing and abuse.
Today, I saw a bit of good news. Veterans in Northern California can now go to CVS Minute Clinics for urgent care treatment. No waiting, no appointments. Best thing the VA has done for a long time. I hope this pilot project in California works out well and gets extended nationwide.
