Yes, the VA does not want to spend the money. It is not that they hurt. It is that they hurt the VA's pocket book. They woul rather give you false teeth. They would be glad to pull all your teeth and give you some false ones. Who wants care from a provider who only concern is how much it will cost them? I am really fed up with the VA in all respects. If they would give me a buyout option I would take it.

John,

Be careful what you wish for. You know as well as I do that if the Compensation Buyout Thing ever passed, it would only be advantageous

to the VA and not the claimant. Think about all the fine print and problems we would have with it. I know it would be nice to get a big wad of cash and invest it yourself - but I feel sure many vets with problems would blow the wad fast and end up loosing everything, no place to live and no more monthly compensation coming in.

Sorry for getting off topic here.

jmho,

I would opt out if the VA would give me ChampVA as it is for my wife in a second.

Even with no dental I would be happy.

You need to have bone density in order to receive dental implants. I unfortunately do not so after 15 extractions and replacing crowns I had for 33 years, I will receive 2 partials. My dentist used every precaution to save what he was able to and this has been going on since Jan 08. Not yet received completion. B)

My understanding is -not all VAMC Dental Clinics do implants! Reno VAMC does not, but San Francisco does! If you can travel, then go for it! It is a far superior product. I have bone loss, so I am not a good candidate. I got Fee Base Care to pay for a Bridge. ~Wings

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
