3. His cantankerous personality is a part of the problem ...

"Holliman said that a man then came to him at the Veterans Home on December 23 and requested that he sign paperwork for Medicare. After Holliman refused, the man took away the prosthetics."

After medicare pays or doesn't pay (because he's over 65), VA pay what's left. I have to do the same thing after my surgeries or treatments in non VA facilities, and VA has always paid it and I've never paid a cent and my service was nowhere near this guy performed.


"VA's Prosthetic & Sensory Aids Service, which also has more than 600 local contracts with accredited orthotic and prosthetic providers, stands ready to deliver comprehensive support to optimize health and independence of our Veterans," he said "If eligible veterans do not wish to take advantage of these services, VA is unable to intervene and correct issues arising with personal purchases."
