I hope I'm not the reason your post was deleted, it was a good post. I promise I won't post on health care debate posts again...:(

It had just gotten to point where people were getting personal and I did not want anyone to get banned so I just deleted the entire thing.


Sniper,
Diabetes is covered by the Agent Orange.
It should take you about 6 months from filing to awarding (unless we have one huge offensive come up).
Generally they are approved.
The worse they can say is no.
For 8 dollar non service connected perscriptions and free service connected perscriptions.
Just something to think about. I do not mean to push, just worried about you.

P.S. I wonder if a spouse could be covered.

Hey its OK guys. I knew the post was risky when I wrote it. The subject is hot right now with people being pushed and shoved in different directions. As I said, it was not intended to be political . I was trying to point out how scary the lack of good reliable info is and the fact that some are using misinformation as a tool to get what they want or not get what they dont want. Either way it will effect the people who have made it to retirement or are on medicare. The stress of not knowing , or the possibility of lost or higher priced benefits can play havoc on us people with crohns. I had high hopes that we could remain civil in our discussion.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I know how you feel Sniper. I found out last month that my employer has cut all retiree's health benefits. So, without the public system I'd be basically screwed when I retire!
