This would involve the billing department and the Pharmacy at the VA you attend. First go to the Pharmacy and get a medication history. Then take that along with your award letter to the billing office and ask them for reimbursement. They may look you up on the computer and ask your Primary care doctor a bunch of questions. Eventually you will get it.

They took a lump from my Comp. the last two years. I simply call the 800# at Main VAMC and speak to someone in Med Cost and billings and they get report from Pharmacy and then in bout 4-6 weeks I get the money back.

Kenny, thanks

Sure would be nice if I could do this via phone. My history with phone calls to my VARO (Houston) hasnt been too good. Usually get the "bums rush" B.S that "sure we will take care of it" and then time and again nothing happens. have three yes three meds currently screwed up by the system with now 8 phone calls and assurances that meds will be taken care of......and of course ,no action.

I'm afraid some of the folks there are just interested in getting you off the phone. Remember that recent VA survey that showed , what was it 42% of phone inquiries answered incorrectly?

Anyway, worth a try since Ive never tried calling the billing people, only nurses and "hot line" types of "helpfuls" Maybe this is the way it is with all good sized bureaucracies.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    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
