Is your wife a veteran? The spouse of a veteran may also qualify for A&A, she/he needs to qualify with the same critera as any veteran. I try to find the standard application form sometime today . http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-...fr3_main_02.tpl See 3.352

My wife is not a veteran, but gets A&A @ $122/mo. The only medical that I am familiar with from VA is ChampVA because of my 100% T&P. She is primary medicare, and ChampVA secondary.

Use form VA 21-2680 attached.

my claim file has been farmed out for a dicision,supposedly within a month to see if i can get unemployability and aa for my wife,+champva???in the mean time my wife has been denied once for social security disability, we have appealed;i am 58 on ssd since 2003.i kept my medical ins from work (pella corp) coba and i got them to put my wife on my pella medical ins (cobra)i pay about 600$ per month for our ins. but i can keep it till im 65.with the million $ cap, my wife will use that up in 7 or 8 years!her treatments cost over 10000$ a month.this all started with my wife oct.2005 she will need these treatments for the rest of her life. bogee she s 52 p.s. i have read that if you get aid and attendance ,you can get catagory 4 va healthcare. look up catagory 4 health care,?????i hope it include a.a. spouse??

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
