House committee grills VA officials over scandal

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The House Committee on Veterans Affairs grilled VA officials for answers late Monday night over the healthcare scandal that seems to keep getting worse.

The newest audit released from the Department of Veterans Affairs shows 57,000 veterans waited more than three months for their first medical appointment. 

Over the past 10 years, 63,000 requested an appointment, but never got one.

Committee Member Tim Huelskamp says there are still too many questions that need answers.

"This has been going on for years after years, and scheming, making up numbers, and misusing a system. So I can't believe this is the end of this audit. There's much more to come," said Rep. Tim Huelskamp.

The audit calls out the VA's 14-day maximum for patient waiting times. It says poor planning and a growing demand has made that target unattainable.

76 percent of VA clinics reported supervisors ordered schedulers to falsify computer records to hide longer wait times.
