  • 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

Champ VA issues

Question

Are there any Hadit members having issues with getting Champ VA to reimburse us for dependanat cop pays?

let me know. I have had a hard time over the last year getting them to pay the wife for her co pays and i am getting sick and tired of it.

The mail room loses everything regardless if return receipt.

John, have you asked our radio guest Glenn Johnson?

I am sure Jerrel has his phone number and it is here somewhere-

I assume she uses CHAMPVA like I do- I forego the Meds By mail and pay the 50$ bucks every year, as Glenn told me on one of his shows, Meds by mail would stop the need for my co-pays ,if I sign up for it.

The meds would come from the same VAMC that sent my husband another vets meds-I get my Px at TOPs market instead.

But I also have Medicare so maybe my situation is different.

According to what Champva has told us, you can not get Champva "meds by mail" IF you have (another prescription) plan.  

I would like for my spouse to do "meds by mail".  The way it works now is very cumbersome.  

She uses a local pharmacy..pays the copays and deductables, then sends a form into Champva and, hopefully she gets reimbursed.  

Meds by mail would be so much simpler.  I wouldnt have to shell out money, then try to get it back from Champva when they "get a round tuit".  Round Tuit's must be very valuable, because stuff happens at Va whenever they get a round tuit.  And VA must not be getting many Round Tuit's because they are very slow at sending the money back.

My spouse had sellman supplemental and was reimbursed by them after champVA sent the EOB's However she gets the Meds by mail now since she has medicare, And cut sellman  the premiums was way exceeding the Co pays like 75%

 Glenn was right on  it does stop the need for co pays  but  mostly Meds by mail Makes it so much more convenient ...for us anywayz.

 The Meds come straight to our home.  even the Narcotics II just have to sign for those.

My wife uses the meds by mail unless it is a new prescription or I brain fart it. We do have the selman supplement which helps for her medical bills and now it will be put to the real test as she just underwent heart surgery. This will be a nightmare tracking the bills with CHAMPVA since they don't offer a way to check online for bills and their current status. I know just like on active duty, "Keep us in the dark and feed us BS."

    • 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.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      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
