While on vacation in CA, I became ill and went to an emergency room. I was advised I had pneumonia and was being admitted. They for some unknown reason (I have Medicare) contacted (without consent to discuss my condition) the Veterans Administration and then I was told I was being transferred to a VA Hospital. When I said no, they basically booted me out the door. I cancelled the rest of my vacation and returned home suffering a great deal of pain and stress. Once home, I went to the ER and all the tests were repeated with the same results and was hospitalized for a week with a severe case of pneumonia. They had no right to contact the VA and as a result of doing so I incurred added expenses, medical and personal and endured a great amount of pain and suffering and a worsened condition.
