Increasing VA Life Insurance

0

I received my annual insurance policy statement today (VA Form 29-0258) and it reminded me that I'm eligible to increase my policy (I believe) since I have a new SC rating within the last 6 months. I figure with the rate increase, the COLA increase we just received, and my current age (58), that it would be a good opportunity to revisit and increase my VA life insurance.

I can log in to my policy online, but I've not been able to locate how to increase my coverage.

I used to be an IT guy. It shouldn't be this hard. Suggestions?

How do I re-order my medicine?

0

Hey everyone I just got out and I’m still getting used to working with the VA. I just ran out of my medication and I can’t figure out how to re-order it through the my health e vet. Everyone keeps telling me I just need to go to the website but it says I need a premium account (I’m 100% so I know I can get one) but I don’t know how to upgrade it. I can’t just call my doctor either because I got a new PA and I don’t know who it is. I’m really panicking because I need my medicine to function but I honestly don’t know how to get everything situated so I can reorder it. Any help would be much appreciated!

VA prescription reimbursement

0

Can someone point me in the right direction to filing a medication reimbursement claim? I’m receiving care through community care network. They prescribed me meds that I need to take asap but I’m stuck with the full price. Also, are there any pharmacies out in town that actually accept VA CCN or must all meds be filled through va/on base?

I’ve got a lot going on and just need someone in my corner.

0

Hey guys and gals. Staying vague for privacy's sake. Currently AD going on 7 years now. This summer I had plans to leave AD, move from my remote unit location to use my GI bill and go to school, and join the Reserves for some job experience req's that will help me enter the civilian field of my choice, plus medical/retirement benefits. I got accepted to my top choice for school, and was well into the process of transferring into the Reserves upon my contract completion in Aug of '22. Life was looking good.

Recently that plan has gotten turned on its head.

About a month ago I asked to be seen for symptoms I had begun to experience and very long story short, I have been diagnosed with Grave's disease. Short-term treatment plans have not worked for management of the condition and it's looking like I will need surgery to remove my thyroid in the near future. Before, I wasn't terribly concerned with submitting a VA claim or anything upon my departure from AD since I had a fairly clean bill of health, but now I definitely am. This also seems like it could put me in a position to delay leaving AD for a while, and putting off moving/school by extension. Again I am currently stationed remotely, so I will need to travel by air for surgery.

I'm just here looking for some support. In my current health state, I'm definitely not at my sharpest mentally, especially since management treatment has failed. I feel like I have so many blind spots. I don't like making decisions about surgery etc. while in this mental state. I was really looking forward to leaving AD this summer and would still like to so I can move on with my life plans, but I don't want to end up in the Reserves and then have issues with filing a VA claim, getting surgery, etc. Others in my unit and command are very preoccupied with COVID mitigation, very poor morale/other internal problems, and aside from the corpsmen themselves, who've been very supportive, I'm feeling pretty alone in dealing with all of this. I just need some advice and encouragement as far as looking out for myself, because right now I don't really feel like anyone else is. And while I'm usually fairly independent I don't feel like I can right now. I really need some guidance on where to start with the whole VA filing process, documenting everything, etc., and what to watch out for.

Thanks to anyone who's been down this road and is willing to lend a hand.

So I thought I got away with a mild TBI and a little more ringing in my ears.

0

Some other guys and I got caught up in some explosions a couple of years ago and I thought I got out of it without any PTSD until today.

I was on an airfield earlier when some jets came by low and loud and I kinda lost my shit for a minute.

It was just like what I’ve seen in movies of PTSD. I was sitting on the ground, covering my ears, rocking back and forth, and just trying not to break down into tears. I don’t even know where the tears were coming from, we all lived through that night.

I’ve been to firework shows and around loud noises since that night. Nothing as loud as today though. Maybe it was because it was jets or maybe because I wasn’t expecting it or maybe because they kept passing loud and low. I don’t know.

I don’t even know why I’m writing this. Just to vent I guess. I feel better now. Nothing like that has ever happened to me. I’m glad stuff like this is talked about now. I can’t imagine how hard it was for people from generations past that felt alone.

Thanks for reading and I hope y’all are all doing well.

Mental health Disability rating

0

I decided to claim mental health because when I was in I experience a lot really bad sexism and that was the entire reason I decided to get out the military. Because of what I’ve experienced it lead depression and anxiety that followed to into the civilian world. I didn’t even know this was something I could possibly claim til recently. Has anyone had any experience with this particular claim? What rating were u able to get and how does this process go?

No VA payment

0

So I was medically retired from the Army. My proposed rating was 100% and I got my DD 214 in September. I was on terminal leave and officially retired in December. The VA is not paying me and said they have not made a final decision yet. How can that be? No one told me that when I got out there was a possibility that I would not get paid and that my claim was still “pending”. When I call the VA number they are not helpful at all. I don’t know what to do. I am disabled….I was counting on that $ as my income and now I’m not getting it. What is going on, is that normal? Why did no one tell me this or prepare me for this?

Decision made Jan 21st and it’s Jan 25- Denied?

0

Currently at 90% (92% rounded down) Fighting an appeal for a VA diagnosed adjustment disorder with anxiety and depressed mood-chronic for service connection (originally put in for anxiety and depression but after my exam they denied me for that but diagnosed me with adjustment disorder with anxious and depressive mood in the same breath) Had nothing in my medical record so they’ve been denying me but that’s a different story.

If a decision was made how long does it take to update online? It still says not service connected and my percentage didn’t update either does that mean I’m denied? I heard it takes awhile but last time I had a claim get awarded to me it updated and my percentage changed online that day so I’m confused

Recently received my rating

0

Good afternoon everyone,

I’m not sure if this has happened to anyone else but I figure I would ask. I finally was given my 100% permanent and total rating btw I’m extremely grateful. However it still says I’m on the unemployable program, even though I’m 100% combined. I’m just confused, do you think they are going to update it or leave it. Either way I’m happy. Thanks for any help.
