Enoki: your solution is great for veterans! They can can go to the private sector, wait six years for treatment, and pay $87 apiece for aspirin if (note IF) they get admitted to a hospital.
You also have to serve at least 180 days on active duty first (that’s to disqualify NGs) unless your receive a service connected injury and disability, like in basic.
Also, if you do not have a service connected disability above 60% you have to pay copays,unless you’re non-service connected and have low-income, and you STILL will pay copays based on your income (like my niece’s husband does, Air Force, no service connected, but suffered a stroke. He DOES get VA hospital physical therapy, at no cost, but pays copays for his meds. They are low income folks.)
