  • 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."

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
