  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Champ Va


My wife has champ va. She recently fell and broke her hip and had to have a full hip replacement. Medicare kicked her out of rehab at a acute facility. I placed her in a step down facility today where i was told that after 20 days that medicare would pay for, champ va would take over but I would have to pay 30 percent of the bill for anything over what medicare paid for. Has anyone had any dealings like this/ The step down facility is a nursing home that has a rehab/pt center in it. Thanks for any info.

If they accept Medicare, then they are supposed to accept Medicare as full payment. In other words they have agreed to accept what Medicare has offered to pay them for specific services.

Or, at least that is the way I thought that it works.

But, I may be getting confused (happens a lot lately) because I have that "Medicare Advantage" plan that I pay an extra $100 or so a month for, over and above plain Medicare, and that may be what I'm thinking about.

Anyway, sorry to hear of her plight and may she get the heck outta them places ASAP (they LIKE Medicare patients and will keep them as long as possible)!

Larry is correct.

I am sorry how is your wife doing? Been a long time since you have posted.

Thanks, My wife is still suffering from the strokes she had almost 4 years ago. Her lack of balance caused this fall. So far since the stroke she has broke her collar bone, her knee cap, her hand, and now her hip. It has been a tough fight for her but she is such a great person and keeps a good attitude.

As for me, I had a triple bypass in May and I am getting along well. My main goal in life now is to take care of her and allow her to enjoy life as much as possible. By the way, she always has been and still is a beauty. Thanks again Pete for asking.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
