Prescription Benefits With No Service Connected Disability

Recommended Posts

I was at the Mobile, AL VA clinic with my son who is 100% disabled and while I was there I spoke to a guy that had a doctors appointment and he told me about a program he was in that served any veteran who had a honorable discharge. He had served three years in the military with no service connected disability and had recently been approved for this program (not sure what the program is called) and he is saving a lot of money on prescription drugs for his enlarge prostate.

Has anyone heard of this program and provide a link to information?

Bama,

If your a vet you can go to your nearest VAMC and sign up for health care there.

If you have any health care insurance, take your card with you.

They will also have you complete a financial means test.

VA will figure out what priority group you fit into.

Hope this helps a vet.

You will also need your DD214 long form.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
