Link didn't work but thanks for the info, RUREADY.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has removed an Alabama director who oversaw officials accused of falsifying data and manipulating patient records.

Now let's see LOTS more heads roll!

What gets me is that many VA employees who should be canned, are also going to be willing to quit instead and then they can retain their VA FERS pension.

Some scuttlebutt on the net still wonders why Will Gunn Quit so suddenly.

Then again he ran the OGC where much dirty underwear has gathered over the years..

Its a start, but ultimately timeliness needs to be addressed and streamline the process where its more understandable and efficient.

Agree with all of you. More heads to roll but most already have that life time pension in place.

I think each and every veteran is responsible for demanding timeless in care. Today my husband is at a private dentist getting his teeth fixed after many many years. I had to contact an advocate who wanted to get an attitude with me , but I helped her get over that attitude and request me a outside dentist due to long waits. She even did all the paper work over the phone. Approved in 24 hours.

My husband would not push back on timeliness but I did it for him and got what I needed.

My next target is the lady who hands out travel pay who is rude and acts as if she is the treasury of the VA... She is on my list . Patsy

It may be a bit vindictive, but I truly feel that any of the executive staff who, by virtue of their position, caused any harm or delay/denial of any benefits to a single Veteran, or committed fraud in the name of "Veteran's Affairs" should be retired or put on leave until proven, then any benefits or retirement revoked with the funds recouped from date of offense or at least date of removal from VA position and banned from future government/public service.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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.
