    More involvement of the private sector needs to be pursued rather than keeping it only in the VA arena.<!-- / message -->
    This is what happens here in Oz. A veteran who is a holder of a Gold card, (100% disability-TPI-Totally Permanently Incapacitated), and (covers ALL medical, dental, optical, phyisotherapy, etc etc), can access care privately, have surgery in a private, (DVA contracted/approved), hospital, and all costs are covered by DVA. (Dept. of Veterans Affairs). Same for vets holding a White card, (for accepted disabilities, but not 100% disabled). Those vets also can access private healthcare, paid for by DVA.
