Hello does VA cover ER in civilian hospital? i do have 60% disability.
So I was awarded 100 percent according to my decision letter in the mail. On the second page is says that some of these could improve your subject to future reviews. Okay, but I go online and my benefits letter says are you total and permanent disabled and it says “yes”. Not sure what’s right ? I’m contacting my DAV rep to confirm but wasn’t sure if anyone else had this happen?
Has anyone ever went back active after being out for a while? I’m set to graduate college in august and I honestly want to go back. Talked to a recruiter and said I have to call the VA to stop payments which I’m honestly fine with. Has anyone done this? If so was the disability hard to get around with MEPs? I’m currently at 20%
Help. I may not use the proper terms for this.
I was just recommended to call OIG by the White House hotline. The hospital my husband attends lied on records about calling him. All higher ups too. He keeps getting treated terribly at this place and I cannot figure out why. Nurses hang up on him, the doctors are impatient and belligerent when you ask to see them more than once a year. He even had a doctor write a nexus letter saying that the only thing that’s wrong with him is that he’s, “Obese.” When he’s diagnosed with a chronic pain condition.
What would OIG do for this? Upon looking into this hospital further, it’s had multiple investigations within the last 7 years. I’m concerned.
TLDR; why would a secondary claim have a decision made so quickly(within 10 days)? Is this good? Bad?
I was reevaluated for service connected mental health disabilities. I separated from active navy in 2016 and had a service connected behavioral health condition. Transferred to army guard last year and my behavioral health condition got significantly worse – so I spoke to my leadership and was evaluated on the army side and am being med separated… anyways. I was reevaluated today and the doctor told me what my diagnosis was and it is what I was expecting. However, I have pretty bad migraines and IBS from my anxiety and panic attacks and I claimed those like a week ago. Well I received a notification that a decision was made in my secondary claim and a letter was sent to me. Is this normal?
I have a good job a healthy son a “possible” soon to be ex wife . My marriage has been shit for years now my wife blames the military and me for not trying but I feel like she downplays what I’ve been through the marriage is over in her head and I think I’m realizing it too I have no joy or happiness anymore and everyday I’m mad over the smallest inconvenience I hate feeling this way. I feel like I’m too young to hate my life and just don’t want to be angry and sad anymore . I recently just got out after serving my entire time in the infantry and have had no life experience outside the army . I’m going down a bad path and emotionally feel nothing
Right now I’m set to graduate at the end of spring 2023 with a B.S. in aviation science & management, with a track in advanced flight. To this point the VA has funded all of my flight labs required for the degree in airplanes. I’m entering my final semester and was interested in potentially using the rounding out rule to add on some helicopter courses (my school offers training in both fixed wing and rotary, the student selects either airplane or helicopter “tracks” in conjunction with their B.S.) I only need 4 semester hours in the spring to complete the degree. I approached my SCO this week, but she is new and was unaware of the rounding out policy. The helicopter courses are listed in my program of education. Does this sound like something that is doable under the rounding out policy?
I retired after 20 years but it was only in my last 3 years that I realized how crucial va disability is. My last duty station was a command that a lot of active duty retired from and was mostly civilian government employees. The only reason I came to this revelation was because I worked with a retired e9 and he told me that his only regret was not working on his medical issues before retirement and now he is not able to get any va disability claims approved. In my first 17 years, the only thing I knew about disability was sleep apnea. The word on the street was, if you have sleep apnea then you get 50%. I do not have sleep apnea so I took disability out of my mind. Sure, I would have learned more about va disability during taps but it might be too late by that time.
I don’t know if my experience is on the minority, but why is va disability not discussed more often while in service? I have been through hundreds of all hands, command wide training during my career and va disability has never been a topic of discussion. I still have friends in active duty that are nearing retirement. I always remind them to work on their disability qualification. In the end, it is really the only qual that matters above all.
I am USN by the way
