I'm not sure  but you could take your letter to the VAMC Prostheses Dept and show it to them   unless you been getting your Brace some where else?  but that's who I would think you need to show your letter to.

Good Luck with it.

that's what the letter also says but my point is if I appeal this one brace

then the decision should have said approve or denied not take to

prostheses and start over again.  Why appeal it

I think thats in every VA Letter format...they usually just say that

''if you disagree with our decision you can appeal'' We have included VA Form 21-0958

Maybe they have to say that? but that don't mean you have to Appeal.

Maybe I am not following you on this?

If you have a VA letter stating to take this letter to the proper Dept and ask that you be given your Brace!...then you don't need to appeal!

You're 100% correct @Buck52,

I received my letter as well for my foot brace and hand grip device. I took it to VAMC Prosthetics Department and they entered the information from that letter into the system and gave me those items.

RU, the Letter addresses the VA Clothing Allowance that is paid to Vets, once each year. I think you have to file for it through the Prosthesis Dept, on their Special Form. It's about $450+ per yr.

This clothing allowance is to compensate you for the Wear & Tear caused by your respective device, on your clothing. There's no appealing involved. A friend of mine, gets it for his Back Brace.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
