Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




My husband had two C&Ps on different dates in the past week. The first was for hearing and the audiologist reminded us to fill out the travel form, which we did. Have never done that before and didn't realize we could since he is not service connected yet. But, on the second C&P, we forgot to do it. Is there a way to do this online? The medical center is about 1-1/2 hrs away. If not, I suppose we could get one from our local VA center.

If you think about it, while you are at the VA, you can always use the Kiosh machine. You can can get your travel pay in the machine without doing any paper work.

Also on the back of the reciept that the kiosh gives you are usually discount for the store. One nurse told me that she bought a computer for her son, with the 50 percent off kiosh discount. There are a lot of things in the store that are useful. I believe the VA are using these discounts to get Vets use to the Kiosh. Travel pay was in the account that night.

Cand p exams are all paid for travel. If you are SC all appointment are paid for travel.

You can go online and print VA form 10-3542, complete the form and mail it in to the travel office at the VAMC where your husband's C & P exams were performed. They will mail you a check. Make sure you submit the travel reimbursement form within 30 days of the C & P exam.

Sounds like the kiosks at Stretch's VAMC are pretty good. I'll have to see if the ones here have that feature added. Last time I checked, they did not print any receipts.

I have been using the kiosks for appt check-in, but today was the first time I realized they spit a paper out. It was a coupon for buy one fountain drink get one, so we used it on the way home.

But what "store" did you use to buy a computer at 50% off at?

The kiosh here prints a reciept. Most guys just let the paper hang in the machine without looking at it. The paper has a place for your vitals also that you are supposed to use for vitals. The VAMC store that is usually right across from the canteen. There is a store in all the VAMC's. In Little Rock AR the store is hugh. There is all kind of stuff in these stores. I bought a cheep jacket one time just to go out and have a smoke in the cold, it had a nice hood on it.

  • 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.


    • 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.

    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
