Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

A couple weeks ago I checked the website and found out I was ineligible for the Choice Card.

Today, I received a letter from the VA with my brand new Choice Card. However, it says that I need to make about 5 calls and check about 4 situational scenarios and then confirmed by phone that I am actually eligible, and then stand on my head a twirl for at least 5 minute. Any less that 5 minutes you have to go to the back of the line.

Here's a suggestion;

Don't give me the card if I am ineligible! I can just imagine the number of Vets that are going to get real bills because they find out the card was junk after the fact.

If I am eligible, give me the card.

If you give me the card, let me use it.

This should be good for the economy as I will have employed at least three people just to clarify whether I can use the card that I am ineligible to use!!

What a joke!!

Yeah I have been finding out that for myself. None of my private providers even want to mess with it. Some that have actually dealt with the VA process, fee based, don't want to touch it with a ten foot pole. I don't want to be a stinker about it but I seriously think it is just a PR ploy.

The Va needs to provide vets with a list of private providers who will accept the choice card. The last thing a sick or injured person wants to deal with is red tape.

Also why does the card say temporary program on it?

WHY OH WHY does the VA by all means do everything they can to prevent vets from going outside the VA machine.

It has to be because they love us too much to let someone else treat us. :tongue:

Lets do a satisfaction poll. If I get a couple of hundred vets to answer the poll I will send the results to the Vets Committe.

"The last thing a sick or injured person wants to deal with is red tape."

That's why, for decades, veterans dealt with the VA as the last resort.

I always felt that a veteran with a mild case of PTSD was likely to have the severity increase just by having to deal with the VA.

  • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
