Health Care Reform


Question

Information for Veterans about Health Care Reform

Many Veterans have questions about the new health care reform law. The

Department of Veterans Affairs offers the following information about

the law and its impact on Veterans. This document addresses only the most pressing questions that have been raised. VA will provide additional information about the new law as it is developed.

The law contains many complex provisions, including many reforms to the practices of the health insurance industry.

Nothing in the new law changes anything about the Veterans' health care program.

Enrolled Veterans may still rely on VA for their health care in >the same manner as before the law.

Beginning in 2014, everyone will be required to have health care coverage.

The law requires that every individual must have some form of health care coverage.

The coverage must meet a minimum standard so that everyone will be able to have a minimum level of care.

Congress wrote into the law a provision that says the Veterans' health care program, administered by VA, meets the standard for health care coverage.

Enrolled Veterans do not have to purchase additional coverage because the Veterans' health care program meets the standard under the law, Veterans enrolled in the VA health care program do not need to obtain additional health care coverage.

Veterans may continue to purchase additional coverage if they wish, but the law does not require them to do so.

For more information about VA Health Care Benefits, call 1-877-222-8387.

That is reassuring and for all the Obama Bashers out there (I'm an Independent) he has a long history of supporting Veterans and was an integral part of forging legislation for better Veterans Benefits and a higher standard of care. He also has always championed legislation permitting concurrent receipt as a member of U.S Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs during his Committee tenure on the 109th CONGRESS, 2005 and 2006 and the 110th CONGRESS, 2007 and 2008.

Minimal Standards of Care have been and continue to be defined. Follow the link below and take a read:

"Obama bashers out there" I happen to be sort of independent also and a huge Obama basher. I do not like being forced to buy anything i do not want, and we fought communist in several wars and now we are becoming a communist nation in my opinion.

    • 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.
