MANCHESTER (AP) — Officials with the Manchester VA Medical Center say they have more than doubled the amount of claims paid out following complaints over delayed payments to health care providers through the Veterans Choice Program.
New Hampshire Public Radio reports hospital Director Danielle Ocker spoke with veterans at a forum in Manchester on Tuesday night.
Ocker says the hospital is working with lawmakers and the private contractor used to manage payments to correct the issues with the veterans program, which allows participants to receive care locally instead of at Veterans Affairs facilities.
The program is designed to help speed up payments to health care providers after a report released earlier this month found many VA hospitals nationwide manipulated records to have appointment wait times appear shorter than they really were.
