Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders unveiled Sunday a broad proposal to revamp health care for 6.5 million veterans as the department faces an expanding investigation into the way care is provided at VA medical facilities. Sanders’ bill would make it easier for veterans to receive treatment outside of the VA system if timely care is not available. A preliminary investigation revealed last week that VA facilities have altered medical records to hide delays of nearly four months for patients to see a doctor. The proposal would allow veterans to seek treatment at community health centers, military hospitals, or from private doctors.
