Fortunately this is not going to happen. The Obama administration was considering billing the insurance of injured soldiers for their service-connected injuries/illnesses. This would have applied to veterans as well. However, after meeting with some active duty members and veterans personally, Obama has decided this isn't a good idea.
So.....for now.....it's business as usual.
What is scary is that it was even thougt of in the first place.
ugh i have to quote JKJ where s/he mentioned the scary part being it was a thought to begin with....
i have friends with service-injuries, and wow...PLUS since the military carries insurance on the members, not many run out and get separate policies...and if they did, insurance companies wouldn't touch them, calling it a pre-existing condition...and those companies that did issue policies, would automatically start billing the government.....
