New Hearing Test Next 21 Aug

Rate this question

Question

Well here I am sitting here and got my mail today and I got another C&P on my hearing. Now that not the problem, the problem is where I will have to travel to take it. I live in Midland Ga. and my test is in Ft. Rucker Al.. I live about 30 miles from Ft. Benning Army Base and maybe 45-50 from Tuskegee AL. where I normally would go since that is where it all started. So can anyone tell me why I have to travel well over 100 miles for this. And the appointment is at 11:00 AM.

Thanks for the support on this site

How about because that's where the VA is. To the best of my knowledge the VA doesn't do exams on military bases. You'll also get paid travel, with no deductions, for the trip.

Hollis,

In checking the VAMC Tuskegee website, it doesn't show audiology services under healthcare services offered. Did you have a previous hearing test at Tuskegee?

Georgia papa I have had at least 5 hearing test at Tuskegee VAMAC in the last 6 years. One in Columbus at a QTC clinic. This is the first time at Ft Rucker. I just could not figure this out.

Hollis,

Nothing the VA dies surprises me anymore. My hearing test C & P in 2010 was at VAMC Augusta which is 120 miles from my home. I could not understand why they didn't send me to VAMC Decatur which is 80 miles from my home. I was afraid to ask them to change my appointment so I just drove the extra miles, and got mileage for it too.
