February 22, 2012 - I would be impressed if any Veteran could sit and write down every VA medical benefit to which they’re entitled, and just as important, the benefits which they aren’t qualified to receive. There’s all kinds of things you may not know about, or don’t know enough to determine your own eligibility.
It’s a challenge I’ve experienced myself. What can I get? What can I not get? Who do I need to call at my local facility? I’ve heard the same thing from my buddies in VA care. Luckily, VA has (literally) written the book of medical benefits tailored specifically to you.
VA’s Health Benefits Handbook has already arrived at the doorstep for Veterans in Priority Group 1. The flow will continue through the different priority groups through the middle of next year. Of the 13 chapters of medical benefits information and resources, eight will contain information specially made for the recipient.
The book will explain which Priority Group the Veteran belongs to and why, the facility address and phone number they belong to, a sheet of available benefits at a glance, copay information, and more. read more>>>
