Madigan review adds 150 PTSD diagnoses
The review also found 107 more had other behavioral health problems such as anxiety.
Results of the review were released Thursday by Sen. Patty Murray.
The News Tribune reported that a total of 431 service members were given opportunities for new diagnoses; 74 declined and dozens are outstanding.
The review was triggered by revelations that the forensic psychiatry unit at Madigan may have reversed diagnoses based on the expense of providing disability benefits.
The military has seen a spike in the number of PTSD cases from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
