Veterans Health Care: Doctors Group Points to VA as Cautionary Tale for Health Care Changes

Jane Orient, director of the association and a doctor who used to work for the VA, claimed she was unable to take proper care of her patients while at the VA "without breaking the rules." Calling the VA an example of "single-payer, socialized medicine," she said patients were passed around the system and that there was little incentive for doctors to work hard.

Orient claims the VA is missing the incentive to properly treat patients and expressed concern that Medicare, Medicaid and the changes mandated by the new health care law will further depersonalize medicine and harm patients.
