    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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?”

I've tried several times over the years to have outside prescriptions filled, but no luck. VA told me last time that they didn't do it, but I'm not sure I believe them.

I had success one time in getting my VA primary physician to rewrite non-VA prescriptions onto VA forms.

Wasn't easy, but he did it. The drugs were in the VA formulary so nothing special was involved.

Contact the Patient Rep or the VAMC director. They usually will fill outside prescriptions provided they're medications found in the VA formulary. May need a request from your privae doc, also. About 4-5 yrs back VA directed their docs to do it and made a big public announcement of it.

As I remember you bring your prescription and or medications into your VA primiary care doctor and they will rewrite VA prescriptions if they feel the medications are required for treatment. I don't known how the VA would handle controlled sustances prescriptions.

Knock on wood--This hasn't been a problem for me. I originally went to the VA specifically for the "drug program" enacted by congress with prescriptions in hand. I do tend to provide the "script" and a copy of any relevent diagnosis or medical tests. If they refuse to issue, I'd ask for a signed written justification why they are not complying with the terms of the Drug Benefit program. :P

The VA clinic in Jacksonville N.C. only requires the original non va prescription and the dr's reasoning for prescribing it. The drug must also be on the VA formulary. This formulary changes all the time. If they are not on the formulary you can request a waiver but chances are that before it is approved you either will not need it any more or be deseased Dale Jr. 8
