This is exactly what goes through my head every time a pharmacy tells me formulary prevents me access to the treatment that works best. I’ve been doing this through the VA and private healthcare for over twenty-five years. Unfamiliar with Veterans Healthcare? Veterans Healthcare is like Kaiser Permanente but without the multiple paid TV, internet and radio commercials talking about how great they are.
If Veterans Healthcare had the PR and advertising budget as Kaiser Permanente and United Healthcare, we’d know just as much about VA Healthcare as we do the Kardashians.
