Can you tell me how has the war on terror affected military health care?

Can you tell me how has the war on terror affected military health care?

The WOT itself isn't: any different than other wars. What is different is #1 advancement of medicine worldwide & despite that #2 how SM & vets are affected by budgetary cuts authorized by current members of Congress & the Executive branch. For example, PTSD is not new - veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam & the GW suffer from this. The recent Walter Reed scandal, however, put a spotlight on it & forced policy changes. ...Read more

It depends...: If you would like the clinician to submit the claim (bill for the visit) to your insurance company, you need to bring your card along.

Yes: If you bring a recent Rx bottle, clearly marked, and you have a legitimate need for the medication you may, at the discretion of the provider,get a partial or complete refill, especially if there are refills allowed, as marked on the bottle and you don't do it all the time.

I'm 28 years old and haven't been to an obgyn since i was 18... (it was at a health clinic that scared me, so i never went back)...Was that a mistake?

I'm 28 years old and haven't been to an obgyn since i was 18... (it was at a health clinic that scared me, so i never went back)...Was that a mistake?

Try again : I am a dentist not an ob/gyn but alot of people are afraid of dentists. Try another ob/gyn office. Ask your girlfriends who they like especially if they have been pregnant. When you make your appointment let the nurse know you are scared, tell them about your bad experience when you were 18. They will understand and will help you face this fear. You deserve the best care - good luck. ...Read more

What is fighter flight? My daughter was diagnosed with this at a mental health clinic

I : I think that the phrase you are seeking is "flight or fight". It represents a situation which occurs when people are very afraid or stressed. With the surge of adrenaline, people gey very keyed up and are prepared to fight or run away. This is more of a description, not a diagnosis. Best wishes. ...Read more
