The Smoking Gun in the VA Scandal? “Gaming the System” 2010 VA Memo EXPOSED

According to a Department of Veterans Affairs “Memorandum” dated April 26, 2010. The Department of Veterans Affairs was very aware of the “cooking of the books” dating back to 2008. This memo was sent to “Network Director (10N1-23) from “Deputy Under Secretary for Health Operations and Management (10N). Signed by, William Schoenhard FACHE. Karen Morris, MSW Associate Director, as well as Michael Davies, MD, Director VHA Systems Redesign are also listed in this memo as contacts for any questions regarding this memo.

Veterans Administration Memo Gaming the System

“1. The purpose of the memorandum is to call for immediate action within every VISA to review current scheduling practices to identify and eliminate all inappropriate practices including but not limited to the practice specified below.

2. It has come to my attention that in order to improve scores on assorted access measures certain facilities have adopted use of inappropriate scheduling practices sometimes referred to as “gaming strategies.” Example: As a way to combat missed opportunity rates some medical centers cancel appointments for patients not checked in 10 – 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time. Patients are informed that it is medical center policy that they must check in early and if they fail to do so, it is in the medical center’s right to cancel that appointment. This is not patient centered care.

3. For your assistance, attached is a listing of the inappropriate scheduling practices identified by a multi-VISN workgroup charted by the systems Redesign office. Please be cautioned that since 2008, additional new, or modified gaming strategies may have emerged, so do not consider this list a full description of all current possibilities of inappropriate scheduling practices that need to be addressed. These practices will not be tolerated. “

One week ago the entire nation was focused, and enraged about the Veterans Administration. Bombarding the Veterans Administration for their illegal, unethical practices of “cooking the books” which have caused the death of many of our honorable men/women that have served to protect this nation. Our veterans continue to die due to “death panels” while the public’s attention has been diverted, concerned, and focused on the illegal trade of 5 top Taliban leaders for one American deserter/traitor.

While that is disgusting, and illegal, it is also not surprising. We need to stop allowing ourselves to be distracted by those things we cannot control, and focus on what we can. We need to focus on what is going on here at home. What do you say we stand together and help get our veterans the vital care they need? We need to think about arming and training our law abiding citizens. This way if the terrorists do decide to attack us, we the people will be able to defend our country from those that would murder our people.

The first thing that must happen is to get the ultimate terrorist supporter out of the White House by impeachment. He is the ultimate threat to our National Security. There is no doubt democratic candidates running for election this year are extremely happy the focus is now on another one of Obama’s illegal actions in supporting terrorists, instead of being held accountable for failing to do anything about the death panels our veterans and their families are being subjected to right here at home.

The Veterans Administration has admittedly refused care to our veterans for years, which has caused more death by democide”  government than “mass shootings.” The MSM and political pundit gun grabbers love to exploit shootings for their people control gun control agenda, while ignoring the real national security threats and issues within our own borders. MSM refuses to report this disgusting truth. Pay attention because this is what “death panels” are and yes, they will be coming to your personal health care compliments of “Obamacare.” They have disgustingly used the “veterans” as their guinea pigs and have gotten by with it for far too long.

While Obama was “shocked” and “mad as hell” for what he “learned on the news,” once again. MSM even started calling Obama out on his lies. They pointed out Obama not only knew about the Veterans Administration “cooking the books” but that he also promised to fix it when running for president in 2007. Unfortunately for Obama, he ran on the promise of fixing the Veterans Administration problem in 2007. When MSM actually replayed Obama’s speech for the public, people across the country “even some of Obama’s most faithful pundits” became enraged. It certainly is/was very damaging to democrats that are running in this upcoming 2014 election for a seat in the senate. Especially when nothing has been done in the past six years to fix or stop the murder of veterans via “sanctioned care” aka “death panels.” I consider this an act of treason. Death by government “democide” should never become acceptable anywhere in the world.

While John McCain, Obama, and many others within this administration have been caught for years meeting, greeting, and making deals with “real” terrorists, this administration is labeling American citizens as “Domestic Terrorists” or “a threat to national security” simply because they are fighting the abuse of powerhigh taxesout of control spending, or simply being a veteran. All while they strategically place Muslim Brotherhood terrorist connected people in very high government positions, helping to influence or implement policy and training manuals. They are attacking us from within. This Administration is targeting our people, our veterans, our children, all while arming and militarizing our homeland to the teeth. Training the police, DHS, EPA, etc.. that “we the people” are the enemy. Nothing the government does is by accident, it is what I call strategic maneuvering.

I do not believe these “death panels” were an oversight, but possibly an attempt to get rid of the “veterans.” Why? Doesn’t this administration consider veterans to be the number one threat? Why? Would it be because they are highly trained and it would be much more beneficial if veterans aren’t around when SHTF? After all, they surely don’t want veterans to be healthy, and able to defend our country from tyranny or terrorists armed by this administration if the need should arise.

It is my opinion, in this administrations eyes, (strategically speaking) it is helpful to their sick global agenda that the veterans die off. By denying care for our highly trained veterans it weakens our ability to defend this nation from enemies both foreign and domestic. All the while this administration promotes the overthrow of our country by globalist elitist foreign rulers via “treaties” with the United Nations. All with “plausible deny ability.”

Note: I would like to say a special thank you to the three individuals that did care enough to issue this memo in 2010. They tried to stop the “gaming the system” and emphatically stated it would not be tolerated, apparently nobody listened. William Schoenhard FACHE.

    At the VA you are not allowed to check in before 30 minutes prior and now it seems not after 15 minutes prior?
    The parking has been horrendous at the Ralph A Johnson VA Center in Charleston SC since 1996 and before. I have been arriving up to 2.5 hours early to get parking. Even then I have missed appointments. Since then they took out the best handicapped parking lot with 20 spaces and have added another multistory building. My Disabled Vet license plate in in the 7000’s and yesterday I saw one in the 30,000 range. They have added many veterans since 1996 and yet removed parking. For the last year they had a banner hanging in front of the building. “We have listened and will be adding a parking garage” Yet the funds for the parking garage were cut in the last VA finance report.
    They added “Valet Parking” 3 years ago yet within 20 minutes the “valet parking lot” is filled and once again one cannot get parking. Welcome to VA care and maintenance.

    So I have arrived up to two hours before my appointment and had to sit for an additional 3 hours waiting to be seen. Yesterday I arrived 1.5 hours early and waited an additional 45 minutes after my appointment to be seen for a general surgery consult. When the wheeled in the sonogram machine they could not figure our how to use it so they called a nurse and she could not show them how to used it.

    So instead the pushed prodded poked and squeezed me leaving me in more pain and said
    “Well I guess we have to wait until the Cat Scan results.” I was notified of the appointment on Wednesday and still they have no clue that there is a broken needle in my abdomen. Even though it showed up on Xrays March 21st.

    They are thinking it is cancer.

    73% of VA employees are UNION so what do we expect? Government is too big to govern – the left hand has no idea what the right hand is doing and there is ZERO management review – look at IRS, NSA, DOJ, ATF, BLM, USFS and Now VA – it is all running loose and usurping powers not given.

    The Congress cannot provide oversight on a single agency – the IRS has tens of thousands of rule and regs – not one single person can understand the code.

    20 words that will change the way we live.

    Never forget that Veterans are the survivors of those who provided our freedoms and enabled the creation of the best political system the world has ever seen. While I have received good care recently from the VA health system, I was certainly not helped by the system when I suffered trying to readjust after coming back from service after Nam.

    My most severe criticism is against the administrative types. I cannot stand to recall nor state the effects, however, I can say that that the administrative types screwed up my life.

    I do not think it was necessary for Shinseki to be the fall guy. I sincerely believe that the VA should be run by Veterans. The Veterans I encountered in the VA were outstanding and deserve much credit.

  4. VA Veterans should get a private Doctor at any time they need help… I go once a month, if something comes up between last visit and before next visit, l can call them,l am seen usually the next day l call, sometimes the same day depending on the nature of the call.
    This is what is needed especially for all our Vets…

    Latest ploy in Houston VA: You see your primary doctor and he says he wants to see you again in 3 months. Formerly you then went to the desk and they made you an appointment 3 months hence. Now you leave the doctor’s comments in a box and in three months you receive a letter advising you to make an appointment to see your primary doctor. When you call in it is another two months before you can get in to see him/her. Three months magically becomes 5 months. Just happened to me and I am 100% disabled.
