The end of the emergency will bring about a host of policy changes, and it signals a new chapter in the government’s pandemic response.
I had a surgery 10 days ago to remove a ganglion cyst from my left wrist. Everything has been awesome since then until I left work 30 minutes ago. Accidentally adjusted my backpack with the hand I had surgery on. Something happened and now my hand is locked and I can’t move a few of my fingers without pain. Thinking I should go to urgent care. Will the VA cover this?
Just learned Medicaid members in IL are eligible for free LASIK. Worth enrolling? Or does the VA offer anything similar?
I’m currently rated at 90% so I have my medical needs met at the VA hospital but we needed care for my wife so we enrolled her into CountyCare. Turns out CountyCare is the first and only plan that offers this free elective surgery which was a pleasant surprise. Is it possible to double dip and enroll myself to CountyCare as well?

Hey everyone, i recently started terminal and im approving my DD214 on NSIPS so it can finish being routed. I noticed two things in particular i was hoping to get some info on
Under line 16 Days Accrued Leave paid i have a balance of 14 and id like to know if those are leave days that i will be paid for.
Also under my awards i only have 1 of my 2 NAMs listed.
Im looking at getting GS job with the DOD and im curious if and how those two things, particularly the award, could matter moving forward. Thanks!🤙🤙
Left service a few years ago. I went to college and was denied re-entry to service for a reserve officer program due to “chronic insomnia” after excess melatonin use (which was noted in my therapy session) and “questionable” depression, as DoDMERB put it.
Now I’ve just received this letter in the mail denying my claim for depression. I was never able to get the mental health appointments I needed through the VA and had also hoped this would help me get more assistance.
At least they were nice enough to leave that nice “Veterans Crisis Line” number on the envelope… any advice helps.
As the title says, I just received the decision letter stating my mental health claims have been denied. After reviewing the reasoning they gave, it states that there is no proof of my depression, anxiety, or insomnia. Apparently, there is no documentation of me being prescribed my medications either, even though I was put into LIMDU for it.
I have no idea what to do. If the Navy didn't make any accurate records for me or my medical information, is there any way to prove that this actually happened? I need advice on what to do, please.
I have a “Hardship” payment in my VA Payment history going to a bank that isn’t mine, and I didn’t file for any hardship.
I just exhausted my Post 9/11 benefits and have began using the Edith Nourse Rogers STEM extension. This is my first semester with that so maybe it's related to this. I received my disability today but not my housing allowance so I logged into va.gov to find out if it had been posted yet but instead I found a hardship payment being sent to a Chase Bank account (which i don't bank with) for an amount of ~$5000. This is much less than my tuition so I want to think that it is unrelated to the STEM extension.
Hello! I just got a job at the VA to do some administrative work at the learning center. I am a veteran who deals with anxiety and depression so I use medical marijuana. I wanted to see if they still do drug tests for pre-employment. I am nervous this is such a great opportunity but I don’t want to mess up my chances of working there.
