@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

Pete posted this today so I am pinning it as a topic.

Hate to tell you all but your local pharmacy has nothing to do but fill new prescriptions.
The VA has centralized all the mails by med for better efficiency .
They have a new 800 number
(800) 983-0933 8am to 4;30 pm CST.

Update:

The mailperson mis delivered the mail. Even more important after sending meds in regular mail they are now identifying by asking for return delivery. I got xanax yesterday and now wondering where my hydrocodone is.A few months ago9 I got a Veteran who has same Doc as I do and live at houses from me at end of block.

The VA really needs to get a grip so that we know when the meds are coming and what day so we can look out for them.

They sent me my next prednisone for August last week and I received my Cancer meds today for next month. They have been pretty good about sending my med"s, but I stay on top of it by calling the 1-800 number and order the rest of the pills thru the internet

I order mine thru MyHealthEvet online.

It always gives me an error that it didn't go thru but then the pills come anyway Posted Image

Those of you relying on pain meds thru mail have my sympathies.

Pete, you can request a tracking number on your hydrocodone and then follow it as it goes through the mail. I am always informed of the exact day that mine will be delivered. It is usually late and I have to sweat it out unitl it shows up. I hate this meds through the mail business. They have also changed our travel pay to the mail and thirty days later I am still waiting to be paid. Maybe they are trying to help out the Post Office by spending God knows how much of the VA money mailing drugs and checks that can easily be picked up while you are there. It is frustrating but we have no choice. My morphine comes UPS and the day it is due, I don't dare leave the house because they give me a 12 hr window when they MIGHT show up.
