Mission Act

Rate this question



For the first time ever I learned about the Mission Act through a random phone call to a help line.  I went to the local VA hospital (Portland) and did a session with a counselor who then said someone would call me about getting help in the community.  I went in earlier that week and was told it would be months before I could be seen.  Tomorrow will be the 3rd business day since doing the intake.  How long should I wait before going back and asking what is going on?  

I am 70% SC, in spite of what my profile says, was awarded it in 2011.

I recommend that you contact the patient advocate as they are able to get the ball rolling. Often I seek them out when I’m getting push back from the Va and they ignore phones or don’t respond. You should hear something back from the patient advocate within three business days however when dealing with community care they have 7 business days to respond. You shouldn’t have to wait more than thirty days to get care. However they like to drag their feet. Reach back out with additional questions and I’ll do my best to advise or wait for others to chime in.
