    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

Call your PCP and the him/her that you are going to run out. I have the same problem with pain meds every month and with Crestor. With the pain meds I have to call ambulatory pain clinic. They give me just barely enough to get me though the month. Not one extra pill or patch. I am calling the pain clinic right now trying to get someone to speak to me.

bandido,

Something that I've learned about the VAMC mail out pharmacy in St Pete Fl. is,

the day after I receive my meds in the mail - I go ahead and call in the next batch.

The recording will tell me, that med is not yet due for renewal - but will be mailed out

the first day it is due for renewal.

Hope that makes sense.

Its a pain in the buttocks but if you are about to run out go to ER at VA and or go to your PCP Clinic and tell the clerks you are running out of meds and they will fix it. It used to happen to me all the time till I finally got it straightened out at pharmacy.

Most clinics have someone from pharmacy that hides in the back of the clinic. Sometimes they can help.

bandido,

Some meds you can ask your Dr to prescribe a 90 day supply.

For pain meds, mark on your calendar the day you recieve your meds. Than mark two weeks from than to call in and reorder the pain meds.

Calling to soon after you recieve them, "MAY" make them think that you run out to soon and are taking more than prescribed or selling them.

Everything except pain meds can be ordered at the,"My Healthy Vet" online site. I order all my meds except pain meds through this site & have never had any problem recieving them on time.

You can also see what you have ordered in the past and what is about to expire on the site.

Hope this helps.

Allan

    • 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...
