  • 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.

I am IU and I get my dental at the VA but I have federal dental for my wife and I which is expensive and i only keep it for her...I want to stop paying for me. What should I do about my wife? Delta Dental?

Growing up I had Cigna. 

Seems Delta Dental is ranked highly as well - https://www.thebalance.com/best-dental-insurance-providers-4169737

Now I have private ins through work but likely going to quit my job in one year because I'm 100% since I got out but not 100% yet. Plus go to the dental school across town twice a year for a student and the future hygienist to do a cleaning on my teeth.

Braces are a luxury not a right, so start saving for them for your kid. Mine were around around $3k growing up.

There are various plans available to you and your dependents that are eligible for CHampVA, we have the Met Life high option plan because it has no waiting periods for anything except orthodontics which is 24 months (and most of the other plans have waiting period for most major work and don't cover orthodontics at all), it  also has a higher maximum per person per year.  We haven't had a need for any major work yet but we have 5 people using it and 2 children that will need braces (our older children are already done with theirs) so it really pays for itself with cleanings and xrays and even I got for extra cleanings so 10 cleanings and xrays a year.  The premium will go up to $157 a month in Jan. I am sure a lot of folks will say is insane but each cleaning would be that much or more so for us it is a not a big deal.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
