Being that next Monday, November 11th is Veteran Day, I thought it would be appropriate if I shared my VA experiences with all of the GG’s followers. Hopefully, they will pass on this VERY IMPORTANT information to all of their contacts.
On the upper right side of the website – type your email address in the box and get all of my posts hot off the presses. If you want someone to lie to you, Fa-get-a-bout signing up.
For all of the veterans that are not taking full advantage of the benefits offered by the Veterans Administration, they are making a huge mistake. You earned it – you deserve it – go get it.
A few years ago I decided to do a just in case. Although I have excellent health insurance; I thought I should register what the VA in case I need it. That was one of the wisest things I did.
Shortly thereafter, I had some medical complications that required some high potent medication. The medication that cost 600.00$ + through my insurance company; cost 11.00$ at the VA.
I am on 6 medications and none of them cost over 11.00$ a prescription. When the 700.00$ deductible is met, they are free.
Not only is it worth joining for the prescription benefits, but there are a multitude of other fringe benefits they offer, depending on your circumstances. Free pair of glasses, w/exam, one a year, plus. All that is required is, naturally sign-up, and then at least once a year make a visit to your assigned VA doctor.
Unlike the private medical facilities/communities that have gone to the dogs (sad to say, it is all about their bottom line), they make you feel like they are doing you a favor, that is after they take out your eye ball$. The VA is very accommodating/flexible/professional and very punctual with their appointments. I can’t say enough about the organization.
They call you if they see a problem and address it before the bottom falls out.
There are so many benefits attached to being a veteran they should not be ignored. Take advantage of them.
I salute all of my fellow Jar Heads that went before me and after. I also salute all of the other branches that make our country safe. Without them, we would be screwed – blued – tattooed and possibly by now, be eating w/chop sticks.
I also salute all of the medical professionals who work for the VA throughout the country. I am sure they have other options, but decided to serve their country.
Special thanks to Dr. Sherry La Forest.
