    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?”

New Va Med Policy


Berta

Question

http://www.vawatchdog.org/nfNOV06/nf112106-1.htm

"The VA is developing a policy that would allow VA doctors to write prescriptions that could be filled at non-VA pharmacies.

Currently, veterans pay $8.00 for a 30-day supply of non-service-connected medication at a VA pharmacy.

Wal-Mart has announced a $4.00 prescription plan. In many states, Wal-Mart will fill a prescription for generic drugs for just $4.00 for a 30-day supply. A number of other retailers have followed Wal-Mart's lead and announced similar plans. Target will institute a $4.00 plan in many states.

Some retailers, trying to fight Wal-Mart's "Big Box" retailing strategy, have even offered a limited number of generic medications for free."

This is just pure BS.

The VA is bigger and buys more medication than any one else in the business, It seems to me if wal-mart can offer $4.00 prescriptions then damn it the VA can too.

Congress should be asking what is wal-mart doing that the VA is not doing.....to be able to do this.

But as usual Congress is asleap at the wheel

The people in Congress who made medicare pay full price for drugs are the same bunch of corrupt people who underfund the VA. Our politicians are in business for themselves at our expense. I hope vets and others have woken up to that fact. Seniors should be all over the medicare thing since it will affect them and all of us in the future.

I used to get a report that showed the price that VA paid for each one of my meds. It was quite enlightening. I think WalMart is using its drug prices as a loss leader as a lot of people who use it will stay in the store and buy stuff while they wait for the Rx to be filled?

I agree Pete,

The only time I have been in our Walmart when it wasn't busy is between midnight and 7:30 am, but then the pharmacy isn't open. If they can get you in during daylight hours they will make plenty from the grocery dept as well as the rest of the store.

I hate going there but you can't argue with the prices and when your watching every penny Walmart looks better and better.

Jangrin :D
