As a veteran himself, Senator McCain has long gone to battle with the bureaucracy at the Department of Veterans Affairs to reduce wait times and improve the care provided to our nation’s veterans. Over just the past 18 months, his office has assisted more than 2,000 veterans with matters involving federal agencies, including the Department of Veterans Affairs. He has dedicated four staffers to assisting veterans in the state and across the nation and will continue to tirelessly work to get our veterans the care they deserve.
Senator McCain is committed to getting to the bottom of recent allegations of wrongdoing at the Phoenix VA Health Care System (PVAHCS). His office is ready and able to facilitate communications between whistleblowers and other concerned citizens with relevant congressional committees and the VA Office of the Inspector General. If you have information concerning mismanagement, or waste, fraud, and abuse within our VA system related to the ongoing investigation, you can contact the VA Office of the Inspector General at 1-800-488-8244 or email@example.com, or Senator McCain’s Office at 602-952-2410 or here. If you, as a veteran, are encountering problems receiving care, or if you know a veteran who is having similar difficulty, please contact Senator McCain's office at 602-952-2410 or here.
Please note that, if you are a veteran encountering problems receiving care and would like the Senator’s assistance, in order to assist you with your situation his office must have your written consent. The Privacy Act of 1974 protects your personal information, and prohibits a federal agency from distributing your personal information to another party without your written consent. A federal agency will not allow the Senator’s office to assist you without a completed written form of consent. Confidential crisis counseling is available 24/7 through The Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255.
