Sharing Information (Code RED)
I have found this information and it might be new to you are new to someone you might know or come into contact with. This information is for your personal growth and the growth of the Kingdom! The following is information I’ve obtained and/or received during my dealings with the VA & TRICARE.
This list does not include everything, but it is a starting point:
– If you are not rated at 100% (UI or TP), you need to be working with someone.
– If you are 100%, you should be helping others through your contact/information.
– If you are at least 50%, you may qualify for the HISA Grant.
– If you wear glasses, you can get two pair FREE at the Naval Hospital on the Second Floor (ENT). You will need to take your most recent prescription with you.
– If you wear a device; knee, ankle, back brace or have been prescribed a cream that discolors your clothing, you should be applying for the yearly Clothing Allowance. You can claim up to four different devices and/or cream.
– If you are at least 70% and required assistance from your spouse or others with your daily routine, you should apply for the Caregivers Program.
– If you have a condition with your legs or feet, you should be receiving FREE shoes and compression socks (yearly).
– If you are 100% you have many programs and events open to you, the internet is your friend!
What I’ve discovered is that most veterans that have private care doctors do not share their information with the VA. This causes a disconnect, and a reason for the VA to disapprove your request or claim. Please ensure you are sharing your medical information with the VA. Secondly, the VA has gone to the Community Care system, which requires the veteran to jump through more hoops. You may want to request a Whole Health Care Specialist to discuss your medical issues and otherwise treatments.
If you have encountered any success with the VA, please pass this information along, so that we ALL can WIN! Make sure your are visiting your primary care and/or VA for treatment on disabilities that you are claiming you require assistance with. If the VA doesn’t see that you are being treated, they generally disapprove.
