Trump Eyes Public-Private Option for Veteran Care

President-elect Donald Trump wants to tap private-sector physicians to provide medical care to veterans through a public-private partnership, Military Times reported Wednesday.

Leo Shane III writes the public-private option is part of Trump’s plan to revamp veteran healthcare before he selects the next secretary of veterans affairs.

Trump discussed future veterans affairs services with healthcare executives such as Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove, whom Shane reports is a top candidate for the VA secretary post.

In early December, officials from 20 veterans organizations asked Trump to retain current VA Secretary Bob McDonald in the next administration.
