    Medically retired, Tricare Prime locked in rate...new job healthcare insurance

    Because I was medically retired my Tricare Prime coverage rate was locked in. I just started a new job which offers subsidized health insurance.

    VA reevaluation

    Well my mental health VA notes are finally showing on Myhealthyvet but on the ebenefits site it says my status is still waiting on third party. If my knee ROM is better according to C&P re-eval and they lower my rating can I lose my Chapter 31 benefits?

I was rated 10% for chronic knee strain originally and I feel like my knees are only getting worse. How long does it take to get results? I'm concerned they...

    VA reevaluation

    I requested copies of notes from my psychiatrist to take to appointment and I will be going through them. I'm just concerned that since I'm not taking the anti-depressants that the VA will see that I don't suffer anymore which is not the case at all.

    Here We go Again!- Government Shutdown

    I spoke to one of the 5 VA people working in NC through the furlough a few days ago. Basically the only people still working are those that are processing checks/payments. He said that the VA should be notifying Veterans if payments will be held up or not paid ahead of time.
