With a few items added to this card, such as, a signature line, and a thumb
print, (along with an incorporated chip such as used by the new Military Cards) these new
cards could help reduce fraud, and could be used the
same way a credit card is used in the private sector.
The Veterans signature would be the same as when you sign a credit card
receipt. It authorizes payment. From here the information is processed by
computer, and the funds for the services are delegated for payment to that
facility. Each month or quarter this Facility could then receive the funds
to pay for the running of that facility.
