  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Proactive "Choice Program"?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever have the VAMC call you and ask if you would like a diagnostic procedure performed via the "Choice Program" because it was scheduled more than 30 days out?

I thought it was supposed to work the other way around...

After reading Buck's post about the Choice Program expiring next year, it got me wondering. Maybe the VA isn't burning through Choice Program funds fast enough. They can't ask Congress for additional funds until the existing funds are gone. I have no idea if this is what happening, but it seems plausible.

Interesting to see what happens with this?

I just wish they would approve vets to go get outside care if the VA can't give it in an appropriate time manner  (within 30 days) with all the new technology the VA has and all the Dr's and Nurse's they have and plenty of rooms for exams, All I see is a crowded up waiting rooms and  just a few veterans being seen. inside the clinic I only see more Dr's & Nurses and very few veterans   now whats wrong with this picture?

It's Ridiculous .

But they cover there butts when they are informed of an OIG coming.

on that day you will see veterans being treated with the respect they deserve and the D'r's and Nurses doing the Job their suppose to be doing all along.

Until OIG gets there head out of there ass and do something about this  I see no change and it only gets worse.

Veterans should have a choice if the VA can't see them in an appropriate time.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
