    • Ok, I got a partial decision last week.  Along with the decision letter, I got the usual stuff, the 4107 (your rights to appeal our decision), 21-0958 (instructions) and the "Where to send your written correspondence" piece of paper. Also, I got a piece of paper that says, NOTICE St. Paul Restricted Access Claim Center, cover letter. Apparently, if I send a appeal or nod, I'm supposed to use this cover letter?  I think?  Not sure? First, that (St Paul) doesn't jive with the where to send paper. And second, am I special, or something?  Probably something, Hamslice    
    • The only bad thing about all the different kinds of insurance is, esp. the VA, they are going to ask for that information every time. I bet they can slow the whole insurance industry down too, including your timely payments which may make you delinquent in your payments. Being over insured is stupid, but the paperwork aspect is a huge cost that I never see considered, esp. with the VA. If there was something backed by USAA (auto insurance), that would make it easy for me and I'd pick them. The VA may not actually be bad for primary care, except you need physician training, lol, and emergency care would not yield even to those who had physician training. A huge problem with the VA healthcare is they hear, see, or speak no evil; and that ultimately may cut their usefulness completely out of the picture (100%) once SSDI is obtained. That is definitely one BIG problem with VA healthcare and why you see so many Sad Sacks in the VA Hospital.

    • well I heard through the grapevine that SSA change some guidelines for 100% veterans in 2008  and use the VA Evidence  to approve the SSDI Claim...how true that is  I don't know?? but back in 2003 when I got TDIU P&T I filed for SSDI and was denied twice....they said my evidence did NOT Qualify to  SSA guidelines to be totally disabled  and denied me...so I waited until I turn 62 and applied for early SS Retirement   and get 957.00 month   but here lately I been thinking about refiling for SSDI b/c I'll be 65 on my next Birthday..if I live that long? I may hire a Good Experience SSDI  Attorney...still just thinking about it...I know I need to do something pretty fast...I would like the medicare Insurance  for outside health care and second opinions  rather than count on the VAMC. Good Luck to you Reiredat44   ..............................Buck
    • Ok, so now that the smoke cleared, Back to gathering evidence, 3rd request for evidence from VA, nothing needed from me. New end date 2/11/2017 I think the are reading this and playing with me, LOL, Hamslice

Stem Cell Treatment For Veterans

2 posts in this topic

Hello All,

As many of you know the problems with Chemical Exposures , is the amount of damage done to the Central Nervous System, The Lungs, The Heart, The Colon , Rheumatoid Arthritis , Eyes ,,,, just for a few. I am in contact with some friends that are having Stem Cell Treatment done and as long as it is dealing with the above issues there has been some very positive results. The treatments are now available in the United States but only recently and still questioned by many as to whether they work or not. Governor Perry has also been thru the treatments. I have one friend that took a daughter to Panama and unfortunately the treatment was tried on a bladder disease and it did not work. The above dieseases I listed though have had successful stories. The treatments are about $25000 for the United States and around $20000 in Panama and Korea is a about $18000. I have another friend that leaves Tuesday for Stem Cell treatment for his heart.

I am seriously considering it as I am not going to do a Lung and Heart transplant for many reasons as you can imagine. I was wondering if there are any Veterans that have used this and is there a way to get the VA to pay for this? Are there any programs that a Veteran might qualify for treatment that is outside of VA? Hopefully this will open up some alternative care and sharing some experiences or thoughts about this new treatment. I have reached a point of the diseases and suffered now to the point that I am tired, and somewhat desparate. Oh yes this is not using aborted fetuses parts so lets get this off the political screen as I would not consider it if it was. NEVER GIVE UP . God Bless, C.C.

Hello All,

This is very discouraging but I thought I was going to have a problem from the forum getting an answer as this treatment is new in the United States and not many people have gone outside the US for treatement. All of the people I know that have had it done are not Veterans.

Now I kinda feel like the guinea pig for the Veteran community on this and I just don't know if I have the funds available for it. Yes, I am kind of stuck behind the 8ball on this one and really don't have an answer. I can't be the only veteran out there that is looking at this treatment am I???

As always though , I will NEVER GIVE UP. God Bless, C.C.
