Report Finds PTSD, TBI Patients Require More Care From VA.

The Time (2/24, Thompson) “Battleland” blog points out that a “wrenching chart in a new Congressional Budget Office report on how the Department of Veterans Affairs is handling wounded troops suffering” from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) “shows that nearly all the troops afflicted with both ailments remain under the VA’s care after four years of care. In contrast,” the chart, which does not grade VA’s work, says that “only 42% of the troops seeking VA care with neither diagnosis were still under VA care after four years’ treatment.”
