Protecting Taxpayers...is This The New Spin?


Guest morgan

Question

I recently saw the USAJobs Web site showing some regions advertising for rating specialists (or whatever they're called now). The ad says the job duties include "...serving our nation's veterans and protecting taxpayers." So now we know, when bobbyq got his reasons and bases for denial as "shrapnel injuries not service connected," someone was trying to protect the taxpayers.

Now we know...800,000 backlogged claims is all about protecting taxpayers.

Protecting taxpayers from what? The assumption is that the public needs to be protected from free loading vets with arms and legs blown off and dying from agent orange. This makes me sick. They create suspicion from day one that vets are frauds. Those &^%%$

The main part of the job seems to be to optimize the funds available for use on politician's pet projects. "Protect taxpayers" HAH!

I provided in another post that the VA is Protecting the taxpayers and the Government. They are not there to insure that you get your compenstation. Yes if you have a valid claim for SC they must and will eventually give it to you. However, remember VA compensation is paid for and looked at as self insurance for the Governement. When you file a claim for VA benefits you are FILING A CLAIM AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT!!! You can forget that stuff about we are here to help you - it is an non-adverseral system etc...... all bull crap. Your claim is a claim against the government. It is the same as Workmens comp or filing an insurance claim agains Walmart or sears. Same o same o. All though it is a very lucarative system for the veteran it is nothing more than a form of self insurance for the government in which it, the system will fight you to the end. Now it is different from most insurance companies in that once you beat them then they tend to leave you alone. This is due to the massive amount of claims filed. You can betcha your booty that if the 800000 claims were not in a back log status they would be searching the computer files (runnign searches based upon specific criteria) for claims to look at again. Its as simple as that. Not saying anthing bad about the VA system for as I stated it is a very lucrative one in that it covers almost anything and offers an extensive list of beenfits, however, it is nothing more than an insurance company for the government. Keep that in mind and it will help you understand why they do things the way they do sometimes.

If it was this big we love our vets type thing then you betcha people would fry over violations of law and some of the mistakes they make. Without doubt the congress would yank a knot in their butts quickly if it was really there because this country really felt dedicated to taking care of its wounded and sick veterans. The claims process would be about a 6 month system in which wounded and sick vets could have a place to go if they needed health care (regardless of SC) and be seen on an immediate basis (not at the ER but the clinics). Funding would never be a problem except for at the end of the year as it is with all government agencies etc....... You would simply see a complete change of attitude.

ALWAYS REMEMBER: IF YOU FILE A CLAIM FOR VA BENEFITS YOU ARE FILING A CLAIM AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT. IN THIS SITUATION YOU ARE NOT IN A NON-ADVERSERIAL SYSTEM. YOU ARE SAYING THAT THE GOVERNMENT HARMED YOU OR MADE YOU SICK IN SOME WAY OR THE OTHER. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO FREELY ADMIT TO SUCH AN ACT........."CLAIM AGINST THE GOVERNMENT" JUST SOME KEY WORDS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH THE VA!!!!! ;)

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
