President Donald Trump is rolling back a policy that vets and their families rely on for a safe, legal, and affordable alternative to medical treatment.
A Trump Vet Center is being set up in Alabama, where vets are looking for services for pain, inflammation, and other medical issues.
According to The Hill, Trump Vet Care Centers will provide medical services for vets and vets’ families, as well as provide other services such as dental and vision screenings, a dental exam, physical exams, and medication referrals.
Trump Vet Care centers will also offer referrals to local health care providers, clinics, and hospitals.
In the Alabama location, vets and family members are also expected to be able to get emergency care at the Vet Care Center.
Veterans have long had to travel to other states to receive care, which has contributed to the current shortage of medical professionals.
As a result, vets have been forced to seek alternative treatment, including in-person medical services and outpatient care.
The White House is pushing to ease the pain of vets and ensure access to medical care, with a goal of closing the health care gap.
On Wednesday, the White House announced that it is partnering with the University of Alabama to provide health care to vets, which will include in-home medical services, diagnostic testing, and outpatient visits.
“This partnership will give vets and families access to care that is more affordable, safe, and effective, and it will help our country to achieve its healthcare goals,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
According to the White Board, Alabama’s state health commissioner, Dr. Scott Wollenberg, said he expects that “more than 60 percent of the population will have access to quality health care within two years.”
Trump is rollingback a policy Trump has used to rollback vets’ access to healthcare, and will be focusing on helping vets.
While the policy is a step in the right direction, it’s still unclear how vets will be able get the care they need without a Vet Care center.
Vets and their family members have been unable to access care for over a decade, and the lack of care is costing vets lives and causing long-term health issues.
President Donald Trump has been using the VetCare policy as a way to roll back vets’ rights, and he has been able to do so by defunding Vet Care, according to The Washington Post.
President Donald Trumps health care plan would eliminate vets’ health care, and give the administration a new and improved weapon in its fight against the opioid epidemic, The Washington Times reported.
Despite the efforts to roll-back vets access to health care that have occurred under Trump, vets will continue to struggle to access healthcare.
Even with Trump’s efforts, the U.S. healthcare system remains far from fully operational.
