  • 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

Dental for son?

Question

Just got my son's ChampVA card in the mail. It says limited dental coverage. Is there a way to get dental coverage? He does have 3 cavities and may need braces in the future. Thank you for any help.

Champva is the best insurance plan money cant buy.  I suggest you call them.  You "might" just get your copays refunded, like my wife does on prescription drugs through Champva. 

My wife has gotten checks of 255, 56, and she is due another one.  You have to apply for the copays for prescription drugs.  

To get your copays refunded, submit this form with receipts, wait 4 to 6 weeks and you will get a check:

Caution:  The champva check looks almost like the regular champva envelopes that no one opens and just throws away.  You would be throwing money away.  We almost did.

Delta Dental is a great value.  The Price is fair, based on other plans. My daughter is a dental assistant who processes claims and she agrees that it is one of the better plans. None are free except 100% DV - but these days in my area - you are only allowed a visit every 2 years, unless there is a problem. Delta Dental I have a cleaning evey 6 mos with no cost. - preventative. ( I am on the second tier plan of $32 mo)

broncovet,

are you sure champ-va will pay for co-pay dental?  her co pay is what Met Life don't pay  based on what the service are and what they allow!  I guess we could call champ.. be  spouse seems to think they don't cover the copay for dental service or prescriptions  unless it causes other health problems.

No, Buck, I posted they "might" pick up copays for dental, you need to call them.  I didnt say they would, I said they might.  

Here is the deal.  Insurance is designed not to be profitable to get sick.  So you cant get paid more than 100 percent of your medical bills.  Its usually less. 

However, when you have "2" insurance companies, they should work together to pay almost all..where one picks up most of it, and the other picks up co pays.  This is the justification for 2 insurances.  

Your wife apparently has delta dental And champva, and these should combine to pick up most of the tab.  Of course, this is a guess and I dont know.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
