Description

This two part series shows how military doctors purposefully misdiagnose patients as being ill before joining the Army, in order to help the military escape paying for disability and medical benefits. This scam takes advantage of an obscure discharge regulation that allows the Army to discharge soldiers because of Personality Disorder; doctors often determine that soldiers discharged under this regulation had the personality disorder before joining the service. In the last six years, more than 22 thousand soldiers were discharged with personality disorder, which saved the Army more than $12 billion in disability and medical care. Doctors admitted to being pressured into making these false diagnoses.
