Question

Hi,

I have a question about the legality of the veterans administration denying a veteran his rights to outpatient care. If the veteran served honorably, got an honorable discharge. Got ill in the service, got disharged with an honorable, no medical. but was discharged for medical issues....filed a claim wwith Va within 30 days of discharge for the same medical issues he was disharged for and was eventually denied any access to veterans outpatient care in first VA denial... Is that legal?anybody know? is there a CFR or something covering this issue?

Tnx

RSG,

The link I provided has many sub-links that answer

VAMC Medical Care questions to include eligibility.

I don't know of a CFR reg that will provide an answer to your question

on VAMC health care eligibility

If the veteran in question was actually,

"discharge for the same medical issues he was disharged for and was eventually denied any access to veterans outpatient care in first VA denial."

then that denial should show any laws or CFR regulations the VA used to support their denial of medical care.

RSG,

The VA health system is a bit tricky. They will take care of vets either by priority group or income. If they have denied the claim they most likely will not provide care for the issue while the claim is in denial or on apeal. It may be legal, but the morality is suspect. If his income level is low enough they should assist him. Also, did said Vet enroll in the VA Health care system, or did they deny him enrollment?

You may need more information from this Vet in order to assist them.

Hi guy's,

That veteran was me......They Va denied me any outpatient care in 1969. one month after I was discharged, (honorably I might add.) The 4 or 5 times I submitted my claim it was denied. That is what has cause me all the mental issues I have now. There has got to be a CFR or a Va regulation that will not allow the VA to deny a vet outpaitient medical care. especially when there was absolutely no reason for denying my care.....I have no taxable income......

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
