Medical centers operated by the Military Health System, which serves active duty members of the US military, deliver high quality health care with minimal wait times.
The Veterans Affairs, which provides healthcare for veterans, appears to not deliver a similar level of care. There are several news articles reporting long wait times. According to Army veteran Pete Hegseth, many veterans get their healthcare outside the VA if they can afford it.
Both the Veterans Health Administration and Military Health System are operated by the government, so why is there such a disparity in quality?
