Yea..Berta, my brother also had that Cadillac Surgery. I corrected him and said, no, "CATARACT" surgery.
He responded, well, then how come I had to sell my Cadillac to pay for the surgery, and the doctor is driving it now?
Well, any appointment you have upcoming on your Ebennies site you can call and discover the details if you haven't received your letter at that time. I dont ever remember someone from the VA on the phone telling me no they can't accomodate my requests. Talk to people, you would be suprised how many are actually trying to help.
When i'm asked to do a C&P i call and make sure it's scheduled with a VA doc and not an outside contractor. I'm still young and healthy enough to not to need constant care. I don't use my Choice, because that isn't in the "system". I didn't serve long enough to qualify for Healthcare until after i received my 50% SC
