I understand the benefits/breaks for percentages, i.e., 30%, 50% and 70% are some of the major thresholds, and I know there are priority groups, however, can you tell me what the VA uses priority groups for. Is it like a line (as in stand in line) and priority one goes to the front and priority two goes next ect... Or is there something I am missing?

Priority for waiting

I agree

I agree with all of the below : - )

To my limited knowledge the Priority Groups have to do with scheduling.

Priority Group 1 should not ever have to wait longer than 30 days for an appointment

that is needed for health care.

Doesn't usually work this way tho.

Carlie passed away in November 2015 she is missed.

I agree, not in my area though. I had to tell them I was rated at 50% when requesting an appointment. And then they had the nerve to ask me if I had any other insurance.. I believe once you get to a certain priority group they shouldn't be asking that question. But of course I could be mistaken as I have in the past.:biggrin:
