Problems at the VA in New Mexico?
The Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General (OIG) is currently performing an independent investigation following recent allegations of mismanagement of scheduling and waiting lists. At my request, the OIG has expanded the investigation into the New Mexico VA Health Care System.
If you have specific information about scheduling or management problems at any New Mexico VA Health Care clinic, you may report them here.
Before submitting information, please note:
- The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential and secure
- Information may be turned over to the Office of Inspector General (OIG)
- Attachments and documentation cannot be accepted through this form; please include your contact information so my office can follow up with you directly
- Information should be specific to the New Mexico VA Health Care clinic, which includes Community-Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs), hospitals and clinics in New Mexico where veterans receive health care services
You may also submit information to the VA's Office of Inspector General Office (OIG) directly at 1-800-488-8244 or by visiting http://www.va.gov/oig/hotline/default.asp. Any information disclosed by current and former federal employees and applicants about certain wrongdoings is covered by the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989.

If you prefer to contact my office by phone, please call my Albuquerque office at 505-346-6791.
The OIG's investigation must be thorough, and responsible officials and executives must be held accountable. Our nation's veterans have earned - and deserve - the best care we can provide, and I will continue fighting to make sure they get it.
