Army Veteran Has Prosthetic Legs Repossessed After VA Refuses to Pay for Them: 'Medicare Did Not Send Me to Vietnam'

Quote
Jerry Holliman, 69, told the Clarion Ledger that he was in his room at the Veterans Home in Collins, Mississippi just a couple days before Christmas when a man walked in and took away his prosthetic limbs. According to Holliman, the VA said it would not cover the cost of the limbs, while Medicare said there'd be a copay required.

"Medicare did not send me to Vietnam," Holliman, who received Bronze Stars in both wars in which he served, told the Ledger in an article published Thursday. "I was sent there by my country...with the understanding that if something bad happened to me, that it would be covered by the VA."

The newspaper reported that Holliman received his prosthetics in August from the national company Hanger, which produces them. Holliman said, however, that after he received a few training lessons from Hanger staff, he was told the VA would not cover the cost and to check with Medicare.

According to Holliman, the Medicare paperwork said there would be a copay, and Holliman did not want to pay since he expected the VA to cover the costs in the end.

He received prosthetic legs through a private medical agency and thought he’d just send the bill to the VA? That’s on him. The article doesn’t mention if he lost his legs due to the military. Feel bad for the guy but I don’t see how the VA’s at fault.

Quote
Matthew Gowan, a VA spokesperson, told Newsweek that the claims were "highly misleading."

"VA's Prosthetic & Sensory Aids Service, which also has more than 600 local contracts with accredited orthotic and prosthetic providers, stands ready to deliver comprehensive support to optimize health and independence of our Veterans," he said "If eligible veterans do not wish to take advantage of these services, VA is unable to intervene and correct issues arising with personal purchases."

On a sidenote: after dealing with a bunch of zesty private doctors sending me for unnecessary tests I decided to use the VA. I had a potentially bad issue and needed to see a neurologist. Early December I started calling around to get an appt and earliest I could get was March. VA got me in (appt today). MRI is scheduled for January 30th.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

White supremacists are fine with being anti-war if it means dealing with the Brown Menace along the border at home.

video of Putin and Assad laughing at Trump seeing the light on the road to damascus is at once terrifying and also gratifying.  the former because the two men who are gloating about Trump are monsters...the latter because so is Trump
