The Inspector General of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has found that a VA clinic in Colorado Springs was incorrectly reporting veteran appointments. The Inspector General reviewed 450 appointments over a one-year span and determined that there were 60 cases in which the VA said a veteran had scheduled an appointment within the government's 30-day target, even though in actuality it took longer. Sixty-four percent of the appointments showed that veterans did not receive timely care. The VA Inspector General's report is available on the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General website.
