Also Helps Veterans
As It Stands Today
As of November 2012, the VA had curtailed funding my services.
VA PSAS Director said, a legal team was hired to 1) review the handbook of what they need to provide, and 2) VA Director stated there has never been a study done to see how this could help the quality of life and mental health of our Veterans.
Dan Horkey responded to the VA, your not going to find these options in the handbook, so let’s get a study started.
The VA National Director of Orthotics and Prosthetics said, a letter was sent out to all VA Hospitals, stating VA Central Office PSAS in Wash. D.C. would not continue to fund our services. It would be left to the discretion of each facility, and they would need to provide it from their budget.
In January 2013, Dan Horkey began looking for support on this issue and contacted his Congressmen Derek Kilmer in Washington State. Congressmen sent a letter to the Veterans Affairs (PSAS) and Congressmen asked the VA what law or statue is prohibiting VA Central Office from continuing to provide Veterans with Dan Horkey Approved Options?
Dan Horkey is actively working on submitting a Clinical Research Study Proposal on the basis of benefiting the mental health, well- being of our severely injured, Disabled Veterans.
Between 2009-2012 Dan Horkey helped 10 – Veterans
at VA Hospitals in Durham, NC, Indianapolis, IN, Jackson, MS, Decatur VA, Atlanta, GA, Baltimore, MD, Topeka, KS, Memphis, TN.
