Question

On Myhealthvet

Anyone use the ID.ME Account?

if you did sign up do you still have your Myhealthvet Account?

ID.ME is a secure partner with Myhealthvet.

If you sign up  did it effect your myhealthvet Account?

Well when I log into myheathvet  ..I see the DS Login to the right  and the ID.ME

So once your in the Myhealthvet site   

all you need to do is just clink the ID.ME  Button to go there  or do you need to sign up for that too?

@Buck52

You have to sign up for ID.ME and prove you are a veteran.

ID.ME is a marketing company that targets veterans, firemen, cops, students etc to sell them stuff that is sometimes at a discount. I have never found a discount from them that was worth a darn.

They also have a contract with the VA that allows them to ask you questions and look at your government files to verify you know the information and assumes you are that person.

It has been a while since I signed up, but If I remember it also does a soft-pull to your credit files to ask questions from there but I did sign up before the VA started using them.

Once you are approved by ID.ME you will be required to select different things for their marketing. 

Once that is done, you will be able to use the ID to log into certain VA sites.

Please note that the new Sec. just gave a speech saying that VA.GOV is being redesigned to be the "front door" to 80 of its most used websites. What the means for access via DS Login and ID.ME is unknown.

Where the other information on VA.GOV will be accessible from was not discussed, but I suspect this is part of the current administrations program to hide or cleans government websites of data they feel goes against their policy goals. I won't dive into politics here, but hiding data already paid for by the taxpayer goes against long standing public policy and is a partisan action.

OIC

I have Myhealthvet account and access to my medical notes and order meds and check on my appointments and can email my VA Providers If I need to!

I have a separate account for  e benefits but I access that in Mthealthvet  by just clicking on e benefit's

I don't think I'll sign up for the ID.ME    It's not for me.

Thanks Everyone!!!

    • 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.
