  • 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

C H A M P V A - One Of The Very Best Benefits!

Question

Just got through gathering up the Wife's receipts for the last three months to send in to CHAMPVA.

Total is $2,233.00 that was NOT covered by her employer-provided health insurance.

She has diabetes and some of her drugs are like $450 over and above her primary health insurance.

YUP, I am most pleased with CHAMPVA. There will be a check in the mailbox for this, probably before the first of the year.

Being 100% disabled is NOT FUN...........heck, if I was able to work my health insurance because of my work would take the place of the CHAMPVA, with HER work's health insurance being the "primary" payor.

So, I guess that we are not getting anything that I would not have if I were "employable"...............but, it still makes my heart feel good about the CHAMPVA benefits.

Thanks, VA!

I am having a bit of trouble getting started with champva, My wife and I are both on tri-care and Medicare. My wife is hearing impaired and her hearing aids are not covered by either tri-care  or Medicare for replacement.

We moved back home in July 2015 From Ft. Bragg NC after quite a long  time away from Cal.

long story short, when I went to eligibility  to register at the Loma Linda VA they told me that my wife is eligible for CHAMPVA but  didn't tell me how to sign her up. Is there anyone who has any information that can give me a sit-rep on what to do, where I do it etc.

Thanks for the assist

From all that I have read, you are not qualified for ChampVA if you have Tricare

Berta, How are ya, haven't been on here in a few years and sorry to hear about Carlie.  Question is about ChampVA... If the Veteran's spouse is covered under ChampVa and the Veteran later passes on, does the widowed spouse continue to keep ChampVA or not? Since the sponsor is no longer living.

    • 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.
