  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Thanks Vync, the tips are great I don't need any help in the staying awake department... I shall see tomorrow
  4. 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?
  5. you can find them online at the site you want to be treated.
  6. Does the same apply if you are rated P&T with no future exams?
  7. 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.
  8. Unemployability

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Ok I got awarded TDIU the letter says total and perminant and the commisary letter is in the letter section on ebennies. Now does this mean that my wife is now able to get CHAMPVA? I know it will be secondary to her other insurance so should we get it now or when she retires?
  13. Keeping Fingers Crossed

    Well just went into ebennies to have a look and it shows both as completed. Naturally being the curious type I went to download VA letters and lo and behold it said "You are being paid at 100 percent rate because you are unemployable due to your service-connected disabilities: Yes You are considered to be totally and permanently disabled due to your service connected disabilities: Yes" Now just to wait and see the big envelope arrive!!!!!!!!
  14. Keeping Fingers Crossed

    Aggie, I think I would be hound dogging someone that is way too long
  15. Since we all know how accurate E-bennies is and it is showing my 2 claims as prep for notification time for finger crossing. It has been 11 months on the dependent claim and 8 months on the TDIU. Reno had to ship it out to another location, just hope they sent everything. I don't want to have to fight the appeal process but am ready if I have to.
