Description

KARE 11's two-year investigation exposed a systemic nationwide pattern of veterans having their emergency medical bills improperly denied and often turned over to collection agencies. VA whistleblowers revealed to KARE that government quotas for processing claims - and a computer system that made it easier to deny claims than to approve them - were to blame for many denials. The improper denials could total billions of dollars.
