My thinking exactly, Berta. The VA is trying to improve their "brand" (image) so we can expect them to report positive news, and forget the negatives. The VA "overpaying" a minority of Veterans makes it sounds like this is a benevolent VA trying to help Vets. Instead, its VA employees who want to do just the parts of their job that gives them bonuses, and nothing else. In some instances this helps Vets, while most of the time Vets get burned.

Since they mentioned travel expenses, how about the massive underpayment of mileage allowance, as a result of using zip codes instead of the actual map distances, as stated in the regs as an approved method. The underpayment, on a yearly basis, can easily reach 250k x 152 (VAMCs). That's based upon data from one of the smaller VAMCs no less! If you assume that the zip code method both underpays and overpays(horrors!) veterans, it might reduce underpayment to only 150k x 152, with the rest going to overpayment. Will the VA IG investigate? They say no, it's below their radar! After all, fraud against the VA is more important than the VA shafting veterans! What is the VAMCs answer? "Oh, we are going to" (when we get around to it) "change the computer program". (that uses the zip code method.) My VAMC REFUSES to use any other of the "approved methods" that involve actual map mileage. Remember that the VA has been known to take decades to correct obvious and simple problems!

It really is true. They are supposed to pay 100 percent for convalesent or surgury then re examine to set a residual comp but they fail to do this. It is not the Veterans fault.

This has been posted at Hadit before. Maybe 2 years ago,

    • 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.
