Alabama physicians form network to provide private care for state veterans
A group of Alabama physicians are teaming up to help provide medical care to veterans. The Medical Association of the State of Alabama, or MASA, is creating a registry of private physicians prepared to serve veterans outside the embattled Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare system. "Our nation is indebted to our veterans for the great service they have given this country and Alabama's physicians want to step up and help the VA deliver the care our veterans need and deserve," MASA President Ron Franks, M.D., said. The move comes as the VA has been under fire for long wait times and falsified records that in some cases, have led to patient deaths.
