Military doctors in crosshairs of a budget battle
The U.S. military is devising major reductions in its medical corps, unnerving the system's advocates who fear the cuts will hobble the armed forces' ability to adequately care for health problems of military personnel at home and abroad. The move inside the military coincides with efforts by the Trump administration to privatize care for veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs last month proposed rules that would allow veterans to use private hospitals and clinics if government primary care facilities are not nearby or if they have to wait too long for an appointment.
