Accredited claims agent Matthew Getz said he has seen a gradual increase in the periods of time veterans have to wait for non-emergency medical appointments.
He said a month or two ago, the normal wait time would be 30 days.
“That’s begun shifting to the 60 day time frame,” said Getz. “In the past week I’ve had a half dozen clients who have shown me their appointment schedule letters for appointments being scheduled up to 90 days out.”
