    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

Medical Expense Report Aid And Attendance

Recommended Posts

My mother was approved for A&A around Oct 2012 at a rate of $988 per month first time filing for it and glad to see the EVR form is no longer required per the letter that came in the mail on Friday. But I have a question on the medical expense report. She is still at home, disabled and we are her care givers and they included that medical expense report in the letter but do we have to fill it out each year and list our care giver monthly amount, her Blue Cross and Prescription insurance payments and all her prescription co pays? Or do only fill it out if there is a change in caregiver amount, private insurnace monthly payments etc? I don't see much of a change on copays etc this last year to let the VA know and try to get more of a monthly payment. I just don't want to not submit this form and they stop her payments of A&A due to not submitting the medical expense report each year.

I suggest that you meet with a Veterans Service Office and ask them to help you with the form. The VA stops paying fairly abruptly if you don't return their forms. I would look for help as your response can some times affect payment on Pension or some types of A&A.

Good luck

I'll do that on Tuesday. I was hoping to know if I have to submit that medical expense form yearly expecially now that the EVR form is no longer being required to be asent in. There is nothing in the papers to say if we have to submit the medical expense form yearly or only when things change like care giver monthly payments go higher etc.. Thanks

there is also a program the VA has concerning caregivers. They now pay an additional amount for those that care for those receiving VA compensation. I would speak with your VSO concerning this as well.

As stated above, any time VA sends you paperwork, please respond, if not they will stop the compensation!

Then it goes through the whole process to get it started again.

Thanks for the info I forgot about it. Question if I submit for this will it mess up my FDC that went in Dec 28th 2012??? I hate to submit anything to the VA while it's in review. Update on you asking me to keep you updated on my FDC with a DBQ etc I submitted it Dec 28th 2012 and it went to under review Jan 19th not bad for all the days off they had with the Holidays etc.

    • 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.
