Missed initial C&P exams last year, rated 0 not service related

0

Missed my initial appointments, started a new job and moved so it was the last thing on my mind, experiencing a lot of anxiety at the time too. Not an excuse but here I am trying to figure out what I need to do to get it in order. Do I refile everything again as if I never filed? Do I appeal? Which kind of appeal would that fall under? The VA site is a little vague on this scenario so I just need a little guidance on what my first move should be. Thanks In advanced.

VA work study at a different school

0

I was wondering if it's possible to do work study at another school. I am currently enrolled in classes, but my school's campus is an hour away. Luckily, I only need to attend in person once a week. I received a list of eligible work study locations, from askva, that are closer to home and saw another school listed. I did not enroll in this school because mine has a better computer science program, but it is only a couple of minutes from my house. Any help or experience with a similar setup would be appreciated.

VA pay for acupuncture?

0

Has anyone gotten the VA to pay for acupuncture? I have had some bad neck and back pain. It would be nice to have something better than just taking pain pills.

I've never done it before but I am willing to give it a try. Thank you.

Have any of yall found a crisis line/resource that is not the VCL that is helpful? I know a lot of people have found them useful, and I'm glad for that, but I haven't had the best luck with them. Thanks.

Employment assistance programs

0

I'm in a bit of a bind and I don't know what programs, if any exist to help with employment. I left a job for one with more pay, but on my first day at the new job, everyone quit and the owner asked me if I would be willing to "figure out" how to do everything on my own since he didn't know how to train me. This included payroll as he did not know how to do it (he didn't even know what system was used for payroll). With the prospect of working and not getting paid until I figured it out on my own, I quit on the spot and asked for my old job back. They've straight ignored me except when they needed my login for an insurance portal. I've applied to 48 jobs in the last week and only one interview, but as of yet no job offer. I have about one month of money saved that I can pay my bills and eat on, but after that I'm tapped out. Does the VA have any programs to help secure a decent paying job? I'm not looking to get a 60 a year job, but I can't work for 12 an hour and make ends meet either. At this point I'm terrified of being homeless again. I have crawled my way out of a dark hole and my life was starting to be bearable. Sorry for the anxiety filled rant.

VA and QTC are ridiculous

0

Just need to vent. Why do VA Clinics even exist? I have an appointment scheduled for a private doctor's office 50 damn miles from me when there are over 30 offices within a 10 mile radius? Also have a VA Clinic within that range. Also, for those of you not aware, you can only reschedule 1 appointment per disability claim. Not that you can reschedule each appointment once. So if you are like me and have 8 appointments for 1 claim, you better really think about a reschedule and if it's worth it, because since there was 1 I already had to reschedule because of shit out of my control, I better hope everything else goes smooth for the rest. Plus, why in the hell when QTC calls to set up appointments do they not already have the availability ready to go? Why the do you need to put me on hold to call the provider and then get back to me? What a joke. This is the kind of shit that makes me miss the military.

Does anyone have both VA disability insurance and Tricare? How do you go about managing your healthcare needs?

0

I’m getting married next month and I’m currently at 80% disability. I have yet to meet anyone who has both and how that effects appointments, prescriptions, and referrals? Any help or advice would be appreciated

“Effective Date of Last Change to Your Current Award Was:” Changed Date?

0

I was originally awarded my disability evaluation in December 2018. I have had no change in disability percent or any exams besides my yearly physical. I just got my summary of benefits and my effective date of the last change to your current award is now December 2022.

Should I be worried? Why did my date jump forward 4 years? The reason why I am concerned is that I am aware that after 5 years you won't have anymore C&P exams.
