    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?”

    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

Not sure of your question?

if you use the VAMC for your medical you pay nothing or no co-pay if your 100% P&T

The way I understand it with ChampVA

IF you mean champVA insurance depends? ChampVA pays 75% if you don't have a supplemental insurance? then you pay the other 25%

if your on SSDI AND RECIVING MEDICARE? Medicare would pick up the other 25%

you pay 50.00 Annual deductible &blance of the 25% with champVA....>If don't have a supplemental Insurance!

BTW ChampVA Insurance is great easy to work with ect,,,ect,,

I may not be correct on this but other hadit members can help!

Thanks for your service & Congratulations on Your WIN! :)

Your Welcome les,

Usually just the 25%.

if your not getting SSDI you should file for that asap like tomorrow take your award letter to SSA Office

As expensive medical care is now days you guys may check out some supplement insurance that way your medical is taken care of and no out of pocket cost..how ever the supplemental insurance is about 90.00 to 100.00 monthly so if your spouse is in bad health it could be worth the $ if not its just a chance we never know when something may happen and we need medical coverage.

Some VAMC Will let your spouse have General care but now they closed all the specialty clinics to the spouses!

you may want to check this out with your VAMC (Veterans Admin Medical Center)

My spouse has ChampVA and we picked up a supplement to take care of the other 25% I think our supplement is 100.00 monthly

but it sure helps to have peace of mind those medical Bill can ruin a person.

Thanks Buck for your help, I will have to get the supplemental because we just never know. I just applied for the champva last week so they say 3 to 6 week to get it but it sure is a huge relief getting 100% PT. It took me over 10 years to achieve that. Yep 10 years of total bullshit. Thanks to all hadit members!

Keep at it because the VA is a rolling coaster that gets you up and down and drove me damn near crazy. Beat them at there own silly game

les,

when you get your PACKAGE 35 from ChampVA read.

it and it has educational benefits for your spouse to go to school!

And Also take the free 10.000 life insurance out its free and if you want to add to it you can but you pay the premiums but there very reasonable.

And check out the benefit on Exempt Property Tax if your a home owner that's a great benefit for 100 % P& T

Just take your award letter to your county tax office and benefits to also to tag your vehicle ...cost me 3 bucks but in some states it totally free R&R park permits is free a life time pass....you probably already know all this but just incase you don't.

All disable veterans should use there benefits.

Just read about all your benefits there is quite A few.

Take Care Buddy

Buck!

Don't forget that you have 18 months to have your wife and Kids find and send every medical bill including Pharmacy back to your effective date for the proper reimbursement.

You may be able to use Pharmacy records.

Call CHAMPVA and ask them how this works.
