A common misconception is that most veterans receive their medical care and surgical care through the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs. In reality, more than 50% of veterans who return to civilian life have the same type of insurance coverage as other American workers.

Moreover, it is estimated approximately 50,000 veterans return home with serious bodily injuries, and one in six suffers from traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder. Yet, with the exception of military and Veterans Affairs (VA) physicians, few clinicians are trained to meet the challenges associated with providing care for this population.

Therefore, we are partnering with the American Association of Medical Colleges, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, and more than 20 other organizations to collectively improve the quality of care that vets receive.
