It took my wife about two weeks. Keep in mind that they (CHAMPVA) will pay on your dependents' healthcare costs retroactively back to when you first became eligible for TDIU, in other words, back to your earliest effective date. So, even if it takes a little while to get "enrolled" into CHAMPVA, you'll still get your "payback", so to speak.

Thanks My wife had brain surgery this past year I have been trying on this claim for over 2 years and have kept the original claim alive. I sure would like to be able to tell my wife "Now you can stop worrying" she is worried if something happens to her current job her health care will be gone and she would be without any health insurance. My health is bad hers is better but she worries way more than I do about her not getting care. Thanks I also PM you this evening when you get a chance sure would like your thoughts. i have paid out a lot on both her and my own health care as we know the system is slow to catch up to what my out of pocket money spent on my sc problems. have a good day...

It took me 15 days from the day I sent my application via fax with marriage certificate and a copy of award letter, until I received my card in the mail. ChampVA is surprisingly efficient for some with the letters VA in it! LOL!

Champ VA is completely different than other VA departments.

They are on the ball and want to provide top notch service.

There was no CHAMPVA documents with my rating packet, though the letter said my dependents are eligible. Where do I find the application / information? Anyone have a link handy?

Thanks!!

  • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
