  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Ebeneifits/ Myhealthyvet


I don't know if it is new or not, but , I found a way to go directly to myhealthyvet from Ebenefits site without logging in to myhealthyvet.

I also found a way to write in past Military Medical issues on Myhealthyvet that are not currently listed. For example it did not show the Surgery on my Ears I had in Nuremburg in 1973. I also had Surgery on my Sinus's in 1981at Loma Linda. Or that I was shot in the thumb in Viet Nam and refused a Purple heart in 1970. Medics in the field did not keep records, only if you needed to go to the rear area was it noted.

I would have been embarrased to get an award for that with my brothers suffering REAL wounds.

Don't remember all the hoops/links I took to get there but I am sure I can do it again as needed. Just hack around and see what links take you to where.

If everyone already knows this I will feel like a real dummy! :blush:

The only problem is that whatever you put into MyHeatheVet doesn't get viewed by the VA unless you share it with your doctors at the VAMC/CBOC. It's a great way to keep track of medical information and events, though, in a format designed by the VA. Don't know if it will help or not, but my migraine log is the medical events history feature.

The only exception of which I'm aware is if you send your doctors a message through secure messenger. Then your email shows up in your records. That can be good and bad, so it's wise to be careful exactly what you put in writing.

I found that out about secure messaging.

Do they also document appointment requests and the reasons.

I ask because I am having problems and have requested my Phsyciatrist make an appointment. She sent me one for 3 months from now. Probably too late to help but I will keep it anyway.

My Employer told me in confidence that my job is 'going away'. He will not put it in writing so I can't speed up my Claim without proof.

Really in a pickle cause I don't want to tell my Wife and catch hell, so as with everything I have to keep my mouth shut and take it. It just keeps getting better every day eh?

Because the VA does not do its job efficiently is no reason to not get the benefits you earned by your service.

The only thing that I use on myhealthvet is for prescriptions, secure messaging, blue button to download VA records, and appointments. Secure messaging is great, but for some reason I can only contact my PC. The messages do stay in the system of proof. There is other stuff like your notes of health and outside medications that you take, but like you said that is hardly reviewed.

Appointment requests or consults should be in the blue button- download under VA Notes. You just have to pick the date of when you requested it. Of course there is a delay in post the information to the site.

My VA here does Gap appointments or you could try to ask for a sooner date. Sometimes when I could not meet with my psych dr, I would meet him in the PEC.

    • 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.
