  • 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

I Complained To President

Recommended Posts

This morning I sent an email to President Barak Obama. It started off that I am a 100% Service Connected Veteran and although I have seen improvement at VA Medical Hospital the VA Pharmacy Meds by mail program sucks. First of all it is not voluntary and it should be. Second I have no clue when my meds will arrive by mail and if I don't get them I am screwed cause my VAMC does not allow refills at their pharmacy and that they could really care less if you have a problem.

I am interested in seeing what will happen.

For me I have three choices, they will give me a script to fill at a local pharmacy, but I have to pay a $10 co pay. They won't always do that.

#2 do the meds by mail thing.

#3 Drive myself the 1.5 hours to the local hospital to hope that they have them in stock.

So for me it is easier to do the Meds by mail thing. So far I haven't had any issues with them yet.

If you don't get some kind of decent answer you know where we stand. How do you write the Secretary of the VA? I wonder if such a letter would ever get to him. I got my pills today, but I am still mad at the VAMC for giving me the runaround. I have not met anyone who was happy with the VA's pain clinic. My VA shrink says they are useless.

Well the pills that Murifeeville TN were supposed to have processed on Feb 2 were due on Feb 9th were canceled cause my Doc renewed my prescription on Feb 11th although I was told yesterday it was in mail and I should get today.I talked to VA Pharmacy in Dallas today and at least when I got to a pharmacist he got my prescription ready for me today and I picked it up.

God help the vet who cannot do all the stuff to get their meds I guess that they are supposed to suffer and be glad its free.

I am waiting to here from President

    • 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...
