Released 5/7/19 at WHIOTV | Tags: Class Actions, Veteran's Benefits

Department of Veteran Affairs representatives said only a single $12 reimbursement has been paid under the law meant to stop the VA from denying payment for non-VA emergency care, a congressional aide familiar with specifics of a meeting between congressional staff and the VA told News Center 7’s I-Team.

Veteran owed nearly $50K in improper billing
