WASHINGTON, June 9 The U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs said on Monday that roughly 100,000 veterans
have experienced long waits for health care appointments at VA
facilities and over three quarters of locations had misreported
In an internal audit, the agency said 57,436 new veteran
patients had been waiting 90 days or more for an appointment.
The agency said it was abandoning a two-week scheduling goal
after finding that it was "not attainable."
