    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

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

    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

Most dental insurance is not worth the money you pay for it. The American dental plan can save you some bucks because their dentists agree to accept less for crowns, root canals etc.

You might look at some supplemental insurance to go with ChampVA that has Dental Coverage that is optional. Or look for a Dentist who will accept payments. Its a lot cheaper and better to fix dental problems before they get worse. I know through hard experience and I have Dental with my 100% since 1996.

If you can convince my wife of that I will give you 500 bucks! Those bridges, implants, crowns etc can cost thousands and thousands of buck. People fly to Thailand to have it done because it is cheaper to stay in Thailand at a luxury hotel and get the work done there than have it done here by your private dentist.

Not to mention the pain. I had one implant done and it was a long and painful procedure. Really three surgeries: an extraction, the implanting of the screws, and then the reopening of the gum to put in the implant device and then the actual crown on top of that. $3000 times say 30 teeth and you see what I mean.

I just sent in a check to the AARP Dental Insurance company. I don't have any idea about how good it is, but it is reasonable. I'll keep you posted. :rolleyes:
