The Veteran Affairs health system is going to review every case of diagnosed PTSD between 1999 and 2004 to see if the veterans should truly be receiving disability benefits.

I’m skeptical of many psychiatric diagnosis that can appear with wide ranging symptoms and require a subjective diagnosis above and beyond say what an ID doctor must make. However, this is clearly a witch hunt for the VA to save a few million dollars at the expensive of this country’s veterans — otherwise they’d be looking at veteran’s applications whose PTSD disability claims were denied as well, in hopes of finding those that should be receiving benefits but aren’t.
