    not much these days
  1. So my follow up by the call I made to the Trump hotline seems to have been fruitful. I was contacted by senior benefit rep and they had all my comp exams in hand. She took the time to look at the ratings and directed me to look at the Bradley v Peake? Case. She told me since ptsd is the basis for my IU that the sum total for everything else was 50%. Apparently once at 60% for the total of everything else I qualify for some type of SMC which I stil dont understand. I have opened a new claim to get to 100% schedular. I closed my knee claim when I got P&T. So now I can re-present my evidence of injury to my knee while in the Corps. I hope I had my new claim flagged so the VA can track results. I am pleased they took the time to call me and assist getting SMC and 100
  2. My appt is Thursday at 0900 at the CVSO. I don't hold much confidence in them based off of past results. I intend to file 6 more claims that I was told was moot or have developed as secondary issues. If they finally give me my stiff none flexible knee, that should get me over the top
  3. I too called the President hotline and had a pleasant experience. Total talk hold was 24 mins. 10 on hold. It is to the Secretary office I stand corrected on this not being the Presidents plan. I was informed it was. She said Shulkin came down to see what the prevailing issues were and this one was one of the most complained about. Shulkin is meeting with the President today and bringing it to his attn. thanks Marina53 for bring it up with the number. I also made a complaint about having to drop my knee replacement for a deal for P&T. A specialist is supposed to call me about it.

  5. I guess you have never lived where come up to you in the grocery parking lot and try to sell their SNAP cards. Grown ass men who never served. What do they do with that money?? Not eat apparently. Medicaid is nothing more than Cat 5 in the VA system. I saw first hand how the VA "topped" vets and took VA comp to pay bills of vets who don't pay their copay charges. They even 3rd party the collections now. No one is jumping up and down over those fees the VA pays to service veteran healthcare debt why should veteran poor have to pay and Medicaid recipients not? There is a whole side of veteran healthcare you don't understand
  6. This why I don't participate, this is the VA proposal to the federal budget. The President has nothing to do with it. If you are so concerned for the poor, maybe you will agree they should be drug tested just like everyone else who works. Healthcare is collapsing due to scamming poor free riders who only know how to be poor. If they cared half as much for veterans as they do there base, this crap wouldn't keep happening to us
  7. I was given P&T by the Wis dept of VA. I filed an appeal based on the PTSD rating. The State rep was involved at the Milwaukee regional DRO. I had just being basically run out of my employment at the CPAC with the VHA. I took some time off and the DRO called and said I had to resign the morning I got back and that I had to drop my appeal for the knee. i was denied based on the my civilian doc and the VA docs not in the same page now that the VA has to take civilian docs opinions, my doc is now retired and the CMO of orthopedics at the VA hospital
  8. Can you explain this again? I don't get the lingo you use. I am 70% PTSD, 20 for scars, and 40 for various others bone and joint issues. My problem is to get P&T, I had to drop my knee replacement appeal. I used Voc Rehab when I got out and so I can't continue to work per my shrink. My SSDI is for depression only.
  9. It will be a hidden rider bill that we won't see. I am trying to prepare for this as I already lose $800 when my 12 year old turns 18. I guess I have to be prepared to execute my plan to pay down all debt in case this does happen and take care of my vehicles better. i did use some of the back pay and monthly payments to purchase property that will not have payments when and if this happen thanks for the replies
  10. I am 90% and IU, also P&T, I will be 52 next month. Is the retirement age 65 or 67? i also got SSDI through wounded warrior program for SSDI. Does anyone believe this will go through with the new VA budget?
  11. Eligibility has has nothing to do with the Patient Account Center. That stopped almost 3 years ago. Indy and Marion are some of the more stations The facility revenue staff is part of the Patient Acct Center. Elig is a hospital function. The CPAC works admin for 19 VA's in the Midwest
  12. This post is a year old, but to play along I never went to intake before my last C&P. it was denied because of that. Now I have been to intake, been diagnosed, 45 GAF, ASPD and depression with severe PTSD and graphically have shown this forum the progress notes with determination of said exam I will stick with coworkers at the VA with a ptsd rating for help with my questions about my exam. By the info being given about waivers and hardships in another post, knowledge is spotty anyway. Thanks though
  13. Where do you think it goes from the business office? Straight to the admin dept
  14. This is my job at the VA, all answers given you are partially correct Broncovet, hardships apply only to medical visits, you are correct about a mt. If the SS is less than $12256 and he is single, then a copay test is appropriate. $16xxx I forget the exact for spouse and each dependent, is the copay limit for married. If a sc vet, that income must be declared. Over 50% does not pay copays as it was said earlier. If you miss a year you become required to pay all medical and prescriptions as missing shows you decline to give income data. You can ask for a back date to last exemption if you have extenuating circumstances to miss mt date for 6 months only If sc, everyone should call the HRC at the 866 # listed under your name on the statement and ask for a sc audit back to your combined or rating date The 5655 has to be completely filled out and each expense must be clearly broken out. Lumping together expenses will earn a denial for reporting inconsistencies. A detailed 4138 listing and explaining your hardship should accompany the 5655 or it will be return denied as incomplete, we in the Ohio or VIsn 10 admin team will except a letter on a piece of paper All income, including retirement, 401k, annuity, cash in bank and al assets except your home and contents must be listed. A new car will show ability to pay copayment. Paying credit cards and store cards also show ability to pay. If there are outside medical bills, they also should be add to copay or MT, and the out of pocket will reduce income but the VA has a right to be paid as well. Waivers are not a right, so don't expect an automatic approval. More than one waiver, changes the the copay threshold for each vet. IMPORTANT......waivers only cover 180 days from signature date. All other debt must be cleared on a RPP. Anything less than $50 or more than one year requires special terms and they can only be extended to 36 months You are the recipient of my last post on this board because my post for help got over 120 views and one answer, you post and have several responses the same day
  15. No, these are the notes being sent to the raters. The whole exam has 39 pages of summaries and progress notes. The 3 pages i sent say what the dx is and the box checked is the 50% box I am already 10% for scars from my stressor from in service
