Preventive services in veterans in relation to disability

Alyson J. Littman, PhD, MPH, et al.

Veterans with disabilities may be at increased risk of diseases, yet those with a disability may be less likely to receive preventive healthcare such as vaccinations and screening tests. We determined whether Veterans with a disability were less likely to receive preventive services than Veterans without a disability. We generally found that Veterans with a disability were as likely or even more likely to receive preventive healthcare services. Among Veterans, having a disability did not appear to be a barrier to receiving appropriate preventive healthcare.
