I must have been lucky, the VA has covered my ER visits over the years. Now with the option to use places like MedExpress this is getting even better.
Hopefully this settles thing were Vets can get help when needed.

Never underestimate the douchebaggery of the VA.

The process of hospital admissions for veterans is much EASIER if they have more than VA insurance.

I am hoping this will alleviate any angst for veterans.

I think there will be more paperwork with this bill.

MUCH easier. Dad has Medicare & a good supplemental. Getting him admitted and discharged is a breeze. Plus no out-of-pocket. Only thing we really use the VA for are for his scripts b/c of their low co-pay. Anything that Medicare & the supplemental will cover, we go elsewhere to avoid the hassle.

Exclamation

The first thing you do when you end up at an Emergency Room that is not the V.A. is to notify them that you are a veteran an They are suppose to call the V.A. with in 24 Hours. of you being their. If you get a Bill take it to your local V.A ask for admissions to see about a ER Bill, ambulance etc. They should provide you with an address & phone number to call. where to send the Bill's etc.

The main thing is to let your V.A. hospital were you are seen. KNOW ASAP.
with in 24 hrs.

Look on the back of your V.A. ID Cared an read what is there heck I just looked at the back of mine

I went to the ER a couple years ago, and the lady looked me up and asked which insurance , tricare or VA. I said Tricare. I didnt know I was, or she would have covered it through the VA.
The VA is confusing. I thought any visit must be associated to service connected ,,
