VA audit adds Eglin Air Force Base to investigation along with Mobile and Biloxi
An internal audit by the Department of Veteran's Affairs shows Eglin Air Force Base is now under investigation.
Eglin and three other clinics in Florida are being looked into for allegedly manipulating appointment schedules to hide long wait times.
The audit also found there are more than 8500 new patients in Florida who have been waiting three months or longer for an appointment at a health facility.
The audit shows more than five thousand veterans who enrolled in VA health care over the past ten years have never had appointments.
Last week, Florida filed a lawsuit to conduct its own investigation of the state's VA facilities.
Mobile and Biloxi's VA Health Care Facilities are also being investigated.
