  1. My dependents have Champva and we received a packet in which gave us a lot of information about how this work and what all is covered etc..... We also read that Champva only covers 75% of the overall cost for medical services rendered to a consumer. What other companies offer good secondary insurance or is this info in the packet incorrect? Thanks in advance
  2. Thanks! I got out of the service in January of last year and I had a claim in February. I got part of my claim back in October with a few of the issues mentioned above deferred. Since the Vso said it wasn't worth it to pursue I left things alone. Once I heard and researched smc I realize I may be entitled to additional compensation. The diagnoses for the deferred items came back after the initial return was received by me. I will file FDC's for those items and see what happens.
  3. Got awarded 100% back in December of last year. I spoke with a Dav Nso in regards to other problems that I diagnosed with after the initial claim was submitted. He told me since I am already at 100% it wouldn't matter to add anything else because it could lead to possible reduction. All of my disabilities are service connected including the other conditions I got diagnosed with last year. The disabilities I am looking to add are residuals from traumatic brain injury, sleep apnea, dry eye sydrome, reoccuring cyst and right and left patellofemoral syndrome. I have been reading different threads and post and may qualify for smc or aid and attendance if these items get claimed and added for compensation. Thanks for any advice and info in advance.
  4. I got awarded 100% P&T back in December of last year. I never applied for smc but from what I am hearing is that it should have been given considering my situation. Where can I get clarification or info on whether I was entitled to it. Thanks in Advance.
  5. I got out around the beginning of last year from the Army. Since the reason I was being discharged medically they paid me a nice severance and I didn't pay any money back because the injury was combat related. My benefits started a month after I got out and I haven't missed a check since. from my understanding if its combat related your severance is tax free.
  6. Thanks for the info. I will be reading through it later on tonight.
  7. I am wondering what the criteria is for the different types of SMC that vets are entitled too. I went on the va.gov website and seen the rates but I am not sure what I'm looking at in regards to criteria and eligibility. Any resources as to where to find or download this info would be greatly appreciated. May no veteran stand alone.
  8. I never of this benefit before as I have been service connected for TBI as well but I have a 0% rating. I received 50% from headaches but it was rated separate from the TBI! I will look into this to see if I qualify for this benefit. Thanks for the info.
  9. My docs tell me most people get better but not everyone. Studies do show that only a small amount of people never get better or worse. Mine didn't get any better.
  10. Only thing in this world that won't burn out is God! Everything else will perish one day.
  11. @ Gastone! Yeah P&T with no future exams. I am still waiting on the original award letter for over a month now. I am hoping they have documents enclosed explaining everything and additional programs that may be offered.Always apply and hope for the best.
  12. I was wondering if I would be entitled to any type of SMC as well but never found any info.
  13. Congrats on your win and keep up the good fight. Good luck
  14. I put in for IU back in May of last year and when everything was said and everything was finalized in December 2014. The VA granted me 100% scheduler as things were shocking but the outcome was good. They gave me increases for a few conditions that were claimed and gave me IU for the first 6 months of 2014. I am glad that things turned out this way because it just gives me more options for the future. Do you research and seek advice and help from the wise. Just my situation and claim. Good luck
