    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?”

    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

Medicare Part D And Prescriptions With Champva


Recommended Posts

  • HadIt.com Elder

This year Medicare is deducting 93.50 from Mrs Pete's Social Security check which included Medicare Prescription Part D coverage. Also last year we ChampVA paid over 1500 for prescriptions and we paid 25%.

What I don't understand is will Medicare Prescription help with co pay or are we wasting money being signed up for Prescription Plan. We never asked for it by the way.

When I call the 800 Numbers for Social Security and for ChampVA they are busy.

Anyone who can explain this will be a big help.

Pete,

I would say you're waisting money on Part "D". Judy used a Part "D" for a year because it was free due to being on a state attended care program. However, since that isn't available this year, we reverted back to CHampVA. I did drop a ChampVA supplement last year, not knowing that we would be back to just ChampVA, so we'll be paying 25%. I haven't looked into supplementals as of yet, because I'm assuming they won't take her with all of the pre-exisiting.

Pete have you ever filed for reimbursement for moneys paid out on prescriptions ? Champva has a claim form VA form 10-7959A that you can use to get reimbursed you will need an itemized pharmacy statement to get reimbursed. and have you ever tried meds by mail? it says it is free of charge if you have no other prescription coverage.

Leroy:

Thanks for the reply its my wife who has ChampVA and she is retty much unwilling to use meds by mail even though that is what I get. I found out that the reason I got confused is that Parts A&B are 93.50 and my Medicare HMO waives a charge for Part D. So everything is ok. I was pretty confused and not being able to talk to a real person was unsettling. Medicare called me up 3 days later.
