Proposed Increase in Pay for VA Physicians and Dentists

Written By: Brenda (B.K.) Walker

September 2014

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs announced new proposed pay ranges for Physicians and Dentists working with the VA. The pay increases are "part of VA Secretary Robert McDonald's nation-wide recruitment initiative to hire more clinicians and expand Veterans' access to care."

The proposed increase ranges between $20,000-$35,000 more per year for dentists and physicians providing services to American Veterans. There is no proposed increase for those acting in leadership roles.

The Department of Veteran Affairs has been struggling in its efforts to recruit and retain qualified health providers for many years. The latest "outing" of cover-ups, the poor conditions of some VA facilities, and long delays for Veterans waiting to receive health services has served as a catalyst for change within the administration's operations. cartoon reprinted by permission from Cagle Cartoons cartoon reprinted by permission from Cagle Cartoons
