Well my physical therapy went well for my left arm and I did not need surgery. It's still painful but it's about as good as it's going to get. A little stressful my brother just had a stroke he's 83 but they have him in rehab now and we are hoping that goes well.

Today I have to deal with VA Community Care I just got a letter from the VA pharmacy saying they couldn't fill my prescription because my eligibility expired. I find the whole thing very stressful.

Yes, that IS stressful.  I havent had good luck getting VA to pay the copays on meds, either.  

Not that long ago, if memory serves me correctly, the VA lost a lawsuit for denying/delaying payments on community care.  Again, Im trusting my memory (not a bad idea), but I seem to recall it would/does affect all Vets, not just that one.

Well I got a two for you all...... Monday the March 14th I go for a community care full knee replacement. So I am tying to get the house in order.  I went for an IMO with Thomas Seiter, M.D.

Marian Medical on March 7th and 8th in Augusta GA.  He reviewed my medical records and came up with a game plan to file for all my service connected conditions. I can not say enough about how he handled it all.  It was expensive but not as bad as some others.  https://marianmedical.com/ He has provided me with some example forms (20-10208 must see) to refute bad C & P Exams and IMO's when I get time next week I am going to post them next week. He gave me permission to publish them hear. I have never seen anything like it before. I shows how thurow he is in what he does. I mainly chose him because he was close to where I live. (3 hours)   

My problem is I am having problems with community care dental. They approved me to see one of the local Doc's but when I saw him the refused his treatment plan. Because I have a bad gage reflex I cannot to dentures ( I have them) so I can only have Implants. So the VA is trying to force me into having to go to the VA hospital. I have been told by Community Care that they will not approve them out side of the hospital because of the expense. i am about 75 miles from the hospital. I am open for suggestions on how to deal with them.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • 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
