STANDARDAZATION OF THE VA DISABLILTY AND COMPENSIATION PROCESS

I found through other retired veterans that the process, response time and the amount given for the SAME “disability varies by state and V.A. hospital. I.E. Texas Vet get 70% for a knee injury but a Kansas Vet gets 10%? A Florida Vets gets 50% for sleep Apnea but an Oklahoma Vet gets 0%? A California vet gets 20% for hypertension and a Virginia vet gets 0%? This money is being spent wrong and the vets who need it for medication, to be seen for service connected disabilities at V.A. hospitals and to receive the medical equipment that they need are NOT getting receiving it due to this program not being standardized.
