In Response To: VA/military medicine (steross)
Where in the hell are you getting this crap???
Military members, dependents, and veterans should get low cost insurance through the gov. like civil servants get.
Military members and dependents have had civilian insurance for decades. It was called CHAMPUS and was administered by Blue Cross/Blue Shield. It is now called TRICARE/CHAMPUS and it has a deductible of $200/year/family with a 20% co-pay. Not hardly a freebie.
It is free! Totally free.
Again, more bullshit!!! As a veteran your eligibility is established by your degree of disablility, whether or not is was service connected, and a means test. From there you are placed in 1 of 7 catagories with each having it's own standards for treatments and co payments.
From the www.va.gov
VA does not charge the veteran for insurance company copayments and deductibles; we waive them. Some veterans are required to make VA copayments for their care and/or medications. Most nonservice-connected veterans and noncompensable 0% service-connected veterans are required to complete an annual means test or to agree to pay VA the applicable co-payment. The means test is based on their family’s income and net worth.
In addition there is a $3 per prescription and is soon to increase to $7.
I see people come in to military/VA emergency rooms to get Tylenol (then complain about the three hour wait!) I've seem them in the ER for pimples, to get chap stick prescribed etc.
Now tell me, you lying piece of shit you, just how the phuck you see this stuff happening when you don't even know the phucking rules? You certainly have no affiliation with the VA or you would not have posted the garbage you did.
Next thing you will tell me is you are a veteran.
Get a clue asshole!!!
