@  maxwell18 : (16 November 2014 - 09:04 PM) I Still Have To Bitch About The Navy Hosp Cutting My Meds By 2/3 On My Norco. 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.

Hi,
Again, I'm sorry, I tried to pick a forum, but I couldn't tell where to ask this. I search "insurance" but it didn't really help.

Are disabled vets who use VA medical centers... which is me...are any of those medical insurance programs that are available through VA, like ChampVA or Tricare (I don't know the names, not really)...are any of those available to me? The idea is so that I may be able to get certain care at a private/civilian type provider.

Is there anything at all? I am P&T, TDIU.

Thanks.

With IU & P&T status - you are covered for any and all medical care
to include RX drugs and dental care, at the VAMC's.

You should also be able to receive SSDI and once on SSDI, for 2yrs, purchase Medicare, part B, and a supplement, which I recommend, to all vets. It allows you care other than the VA's, for an option. jmo

Tri-care is for retiree's. ChampVA is for dependents.
