I Contacted Customer Service Or What Ever You Want To Call It Who In Turn Contacted The Navy Hosp Pensacola Commander Who In Turn Did Nothing. Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place. I Guess Just Do What Ever They Want To Because They Can, But Don't Give A Sh T For The Vets That Suppose To Being Supporting From All The Military  organizations. This Is Not The Way They Have Been Trained And Promised To Do.

@  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.

My father was approved for aide and attendance for 384.00 monthly on June 13 this year The VA received the paperwork on 31 may so 13 days for approval was fast we did everything you said on the site to do return receipt, letter requesting speedy approval we did it all thank you. In the packet that was sent to him it mentioned something about being able to claim going back a year as well anyone ever hear of this?And they sent the following forms
VA Form 21-0516-1
VA Form 21P-8416
VA Form 21-2680
VA Form 21-4138

These forms are what we just sent in to get his approval do we need to submit the same thing again or what? They would not be much different then what was already submitted. I guess the main concern is the doctors form the VA has been seeing him for a few months prior to the approval so should they fill it out again or should his previous doctor fill it out also would a witness statement form work as well from my sister who is his provider? What if the previous doctor will not fill it out? We only have 60 days to get this done according to the letter. He was also found incompetent for VA purposes so does my sister need to file to be his Fiduciary?

Congrats and thanks for helping your Dad. If you have copies of those forms make them. If your sister has power of attorney make sure you give a copy to VARO and ask them to appoint her as fiduciary and for back pay as sent by the VA. They often use boiler plate notice to cover their butts and not helpful to Veterans.

Good Luck

that monetary figure doesn't sound correct. was it for pension or compensation? i received a&a with my pension and my increase was more than $384.00. i am currently awaiting a decision for a&a with my disability compensation. thanks.

it was for pension it didnt sound right to me either but what do we do now we are now waiting for retro decision for a year prior? I understand it goes off your income and bank accounts but they dont have much mom and dad draw social security and dad has a small pension of around 150.00 a month and maybe 8-10k in the bank.

To get "no copay"/low copay meds you need to go to your VAMC where they will fill out a annual needs form and they will ask you questions about income. I think you get no copay whenever the Veteran is rated 50% or higher, without a "needs" check. You would also need to get meds at the VA. I am unaware of the VA paying any portion of the copayment on meds except those you get from the VAMC.
