they paid most of it I guess by law thats all they have to pay?
BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS -- I'm a 100% totally and permanently disabled veteran. I had an emergency and had to go to a public hospital, in Batesville Arkansas. The V.A. approved it for me and I had surgery. Now, The V.A. won't pay so the DR. office turned it over to Social Security, and they paid for nothing so far because I don't have Part B. I called the V.A. and no response from [snip], she has never returned my calls even back a couple of years ago when I had another stay in a hospital.

I wound up paying for my X-rays $59.00 I was never reimbursed. Water under the bridge. Now game #2 $1218.00 they wouldn't pay the Batesville Card. Assoc.

What can I do?? Help???

Contact your Congressman and ask for help. They normally have phone numbers for their satillite office. Spell it all out. It will take a bit of time, but it's worth it.

Can you appeal the VA decision like a C&P hearing? Typically, VA patients must have a VA 'out chit' to see non-VA doctors. Are they saying you had access to acute or emergency care through the VA and elected to go to an outside hospital? I don't know if there is enough information in the post to support the complaint. I suggest that you visit with the VA officials and send a summary to your Congress-critter.
