  1. I am going to call them tomorrow and figure the answer is going to be to use OptumRx at a regular pharmacy but that in itself will be a PIA as it will require carrying copies of all of the wife's prescriptions. Has anyone had any experience with this? Will they send the meds to another address we will be visiting family along the way. Just wanting some honest answers before talking to them. Sure would be easier if we could just order and pick up at closest VA facility.

    CHAMPVA supplements

    I am just wondering if any of you that have CHAMPVA are using any supplements other than Medicare/Medicaid? I had Selman through AMRA but now AMRA is shutting down the only way you could get it was through them.
  3. I have seen a lot of information and assistance for people who are care providers for our veterans. What I cannot find is information for when the Veteran is the one who is the caretaker. Would it be the same? In my case I am 100% P&T and in the position of taking care of my wife. Just looking for ideas etc...
  4. I haven't had mine yet still nursing the shots... My father in law had both done was down about 2 months, they did them a month apart. At 80+ now he is still going strong, he can out work people less than half his age. Still does everything he used to do which is awesome considering he was a general contractor.
  5. What I don't understand is why should we have to register in each location? Is this not a nation wide organization, I know the Doctors can see all of your medical records from every facility you have been treated at. Well I had to tell my current doc how to find what I was talking about. This is just more of their bull dookie to give us the run around. I tried as a walking to transfer from Reno to Las Vegas and the lady I was talking to had no clue what I was talking about. I went and sat in a chair called them got a very polite young man and not only got transferred but got an appointment for that day. I know miracle right.
  6. Well this is working out to be great for all of the concerns. The therapist even ran the pain portion on my hands, haven't been able to open left hand since stroke in 09 after 2nd treatment it opens flat. Now to work some strength into it. Anyone wondering about this try it definitely better than more drugs.
  7. Thanks Vync, the tips are great I don't need any help in the staying awake department... I shall see tomorrow
  8. I know this is an older post however was just prescribed this for depression, stress and sleep issues. I see it seems to help with pain, a great side effect, anyone had this for depression etc?
  9. you can find them online at the site you want to be treated.
  10. Does the same apply if you are rated P&T with no future exams?
  11. They have been using it for a while I got a letter telling me they were going to use it for my mental health visits. I showed the ketter to my doctor and he got upset, went to his boss and they overrode the letter. Point is make sure you discuss it with your doctor and let them know if you are uncomfortable with it. I didn't think the time was right neither did my doctor.

    I know that my IU got approved faster than the one for dependants. Here in Nevada they have a state office that helps thru all of this. I mention that in the event you need help in the fight check with yours.
  13. Got mine last week, think it had been 2 years since I had gotten one. I know they are not done yearly. E-bennies is all messed up on this as they are on most things.
  14. I agree this is ridiculous! The fact you got a copy of the idiots reasoning is amazing usually they "lose" something like that. Have you considered getting your congressperson involved? Good luck to you keep up the good fight Sarge.
  15. Nevada is the same for property taxes with the exception of "special" assements. This year my tax went from right at 800 to 138. However I can only use it in one county here. We also get to use whatever is left on vehicles and get our disabled vet plates greatly reduced.
