Agree with Buck.

Last time I looked at my VA Choice Card, it said "temporary program".

Last time I looked at IU regulations, they did not say "temporary program".

I don't see how this budget cut will ever pass or how they figure it will free up millions?

What about if they just stop it before another vet gets awared the extra scheduler IU.   looks like that would save$$

Most Vets that are getting the extra scheduler IU rating never ask for it,but  needed it.

  So needless to NOD the decision at that time , if that vet could not work b/c of his S.C. Condition  then that Veteran was probably happy as a singing bird to get it. 

They  (VA) are the ones that Awarded it  to these veterans...why not just send them a letter and make there IU Moot and give the 100%  same thing as IU vs 100%  And not hurt these poor veterans  I can only imagine how they must feel stressing out over all this IU Budget cuts Proposal to reduce their badly needed benefits.

In my opinion this is only an excuse to do away with Extra Scheduler Vets.

It would not effect the older IU VETS THAT GETTING IT  if they just stopped the Extra Scheduler Program.  just moot the IU an give that veteran the 100%

    • 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.
