Fog, this is really a question for the business office at your local VA Medical Center. They could probably tell you how much you would be liable for, and if you could do payments etc.

Fog, follow the link I have attached.

You pay no copayment. Your procedure will be covered as part of the VA benefits package.

If you or your wife have insurance, it will be billed if not, no big deal.

Hope this helps.

I am SC at 0% for a nasal fracture/deviated septum due to trauma, i have had to inhouse procedures, one was done in a day and the other they sent me to another VA hospital which required a three day hospital stay, except for co-pays for medication, I paid nothing and since the couldn't do the second procedure inhouse, they paid for my transpertation to and from their by air.

As long as your PCP or Specialist says you need the procedure and it isn't an elective that they don't cover, I wouldn't worry, but to be safe, like the other has said, check with business office or elligibility, one of them will know.

Good luck on the procedure and let us know what you find out and how things turn out.

  • 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.
