Question

  • Moderator

Anyone have any suggestions about a reasonable health care provider?

We are trying to find a good reasonable insurance provider for my spouse she is 60 and does not qualify for Medicare, & I will just trust & use the VA for my health care

My spouse has ChampVA but we found most health care providers will not accept ChampVA as primary insurance.

We check out a healthcare provider '' Baylor Health Care'' here in Dallas and they told us that they do not accept ChampVA, Although they accept medicare/medicade!

We ask them to call ChampVA about electronic billing but the lady said there contratact aggrement says we have to have a second insurance with ChampVA, because on my spouse ChampVA-ID card it says Medicade?

So were asking if anyone knows what we can do? we can't afford a high premium! anything over 100 bucks month.

We have to be careful because so many health providers have insurance at low rates but most wont cover my spouse health conditions HBP & Fibro and degenerative bone desease as well as ostoperoisis and Arthritis.

Thanks for your help.

Buck

Buck,

I know Champva doesn't put out a list of medical providers who will accept Champva. Maybe, Glen Johnson with Champva could check with the Champva claims section or some other Champva section and find out which medical providers in the Dallas area are submitting claims for Champva reimbursement. If they could give you a list of the Dallas area providers, you could then call the providers on Champva's list and explain your wife's situation to them. Since the providers on Champva's list would already be familiar with how Champva operates, they may be more sympathetic and understanding about your wife's situation.

You may also want to consider going to some of the Veteran's Service Organizations in your area and posting a notice about trying to find Champva medical providers in your area. Perhaps another vet in your situation has already solved this problem and could share the info with you.

If I think if something else, I will let you know.

Good luck to you and your wife.

Thanks georgiapapa,

Yes we do have a list of champva providers that champva sent her in our area but mostly just MD's where they send you to the specialist Dr's for other test ect,,ect,,then go back!

if we have to choose I suppose we will just have to go with that but we were wanting to find a health provider that has it all right there opposed to having to travel to see specialist & get test done.

The Baylor Health is good they have it all right there in the same building and we were hoping they would take ChampVA But they told us yesterday we need a second insurance carrier.

You should talk to ChampVA there is a good supplement that does not cost a lot and before Medicare works very well.

  • 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.

    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
