Report questions quality of medical care for workers in war zones

Washington Post, May 2, 2008
The increasing number of federal employees serving in Iraq and Afghanistan may not receive the best medical care or the most appropriate benefits, according to a report released by the House Armed Services Committee. The report examined the incentives and medical coverage being provided to civil service employees. Federal employees also may not have access to the latest medical advances for treating combat wounds, said one lawmaker.
