I went to the ER after talking with the VA's 1800# back in 06 for a service connected migraine. The bill was like 2200 the hospital sent the bill to the VA but they never paid. Should the VA pay this bill since it is service connected and the ask-a-nurse # told me to go? Also I am 70% and the last time I went to the VAMC they charged my Insurance(through wife,only had it a year now) for an EKG is this acceptable and what I should expect?

I went to the ER in SEPT of 09 for rectal bleeding. I was on Plavix for my heart. Scared me pretty bad. Thought I was going to beed out. Did not stop at GO did not collect 200 dollars, did call the VA, went to the nearest ER. I filed with the VA as I am SC for prostate cancer. I have private insurance. I thought the VA should pay as my prostate cancer is SC. The bill was almost 10K for less than 24 hours. Filed with the VA, they denied the claim. Turned out I have radiation proctitis from radiation therapy. (Eighteen months after therapy, Boy I wish somebody had warned me about that!) VA said if I had private insurance it had to pay no matter what. I could appeal. I appealing. I just want the VA to pay my deductibles and co-pays. That was in the $3500.00. so I won't be out of pocket.

Yes, the VA is required by law to bill an active insurance for the treatment of any NSC conditions even if the veteran is 100%. They will not bill you whether they receive a payment from the insurance or not because you are in PG1. If you were PG5-8 and it was not related to an environmental factor or recent combat (5yrs) whatever the insurance paid would be applied towards the veterans copay.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
