This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


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.

Yeah I agree with ya Stretch...

She back out.. I mention to her what ya'll said and I told her everyone is nice and means well she thinks its for veterans only. I mention to her JBasser said she can

She wanted to see If Jbasser or Jerrel would Go to bat for her and a lot of other spouses that maybe in the same situation & ask Glen Johnson why the VAMC closed its special clinics to the spouses that are or have been getting treating there?or ChampVA? Of Chapter 35

& she said she don't mind letting the Veterans go first in line!

This has really caused a hardship for us most Insurance companys only accept ChampVA only if you have a secondary insurance Like for for her bad Medical Condition Back and weak bone structure ...anyway that's what they told us. plus she don't qualify for Medicare Bummmer

We both appreciate what all the VAMC & The Dr's have did for her she had Tripple Heart By Pass, HBP& Back Surgery, broken foot and wrist, from falling, she had a seiziure and was treated for that and she still has problems with her Back with acute pain. everyday.

She Trully needs medical help.& most of her medical needs are in the special clinics she still sees the PCP for her pain meds & BP meds but were both afraid the VA is going to cut her off that too?

Thanks in Advance!

  • 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.




    • 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.

  • 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
