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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Caveat: you would probably need to be at least 70% svc connected in order for this to work.

At 50 percent SC VA is to provide all medical care to include prosthetics and RX's with no co-payment,

if that's what the vet wants. This includes any and all medical issues they don't have to be SC'd.

I have used the VA opiate program. This was OK as long as you had no changes needed in your scripts. They would mail me the dope every month. As time progressed the drugs became less effective as is t

The VA formulary is alright to a limited extent, especially if their analogues are not good enough to avoid adverse affects.

I tried the VA for a while but found that, with one exception, none of the meds I was taking for cholesterol, blood pressure and bad attitude were on the formulary and I had some fairly uncomfortable weeks trying to live through the chemical readjustment. I needed a specific variation of several meds that kept me on the level and feeling halfway well. It took about six months to get back to the proper meds and that was through a family doctor and a cardiologist.

Be careful.

This also works for some prosthetic items.

Also, if the VA is not able to obtain and/or provide the medication you require, you can always ask the doc for a paper prescription and get it filled at the pharmacy of your choice.

I agree 100% with you about developing a relationship with your PCP. However I would bear in mind that the appointment allows you 20 minutes with him. If you run long it throws off his whole day and possibly short changes the next vet down the line.


I get my oxycodone monthly from my PCP with a phone call. My understanding is that 30 days is the maximum the feds will allow this prescription. And the new script has to be an original to the pharmacy, it can't be called in but they send it FedEx.. I see you have been posting a while so I am sure you have tried other PCPs. I am sorry to read of your experiences. I have always received top level compassionate care from the VA. Maybe you should keep shopping for a provider.

When I visit my PCP I am sorry I stay as long as she wants me there. The time spent is her decision not mine. If you take more than 20 minutes its not the Veterans fault. I have waited hours to see the Doc and sometimes just a few minutes you never know. I do not begrudge a Vet for the time spent in the Doc's office.

I also see my Medicare HMO Doc 4 times a year and I must say he is much more efficient as I usually see him in less than 20 minutes from arrival.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
