Vets on Hawaii Take control of your care…

Just got off the phone for an hour with Tri-west, which is our provider here on Hawaii, if you meet the 40 mile rule concerning the VA facility… now does that mean Hilo or Oahu… I think it means Oahu, and I live in HPP… so those living here, know the distance to the closet VA facility that they mean… that question, the lady just said 40 mile rule distance… so I am going to say Oahu… but don’t shoot me if I am wrong… call and find out, talk to the benefits section at the VA…

Okay so this is what the lady did for me today and boy was I shocked I had so much say over my health care… so now you know I am an old lady, who’s been in the system since 84… so it will take me short work to get that out of my system….

1-866-606-8198 is the phone number for Tri-west…

You have a choice for your primary doctor and if you are not happy with the one you got, you can get yourself a new one… Which I just did!!!

You have a right to request physical therapy without a doctors request… Which I just did!!!

You have a right to an Eye exam once a year…. Which I Just Did!!!

The only thing Tri-west cannot do for you is dental… just like all BS in government… women are the last to get treatment… I have been waiting since May 2018 for approval for dental implants!!!  VA is 100% god over this!!!

There are more things with health care you can ask them about… so far all the people I have dealt with have been professional, considerate and most of all they actually listened…

If you are a Vet with PTSD and you have the motor mouth syndrome… just take some deep breath’s and slow down so they can understand you…. I had many Vietnam patients that would call me at the clinic and they had the motor mouth syndrome… it’s just part of PTSD for some reason… I do it too….

Hope this helps anyone looking for information… and most of all, anything you do pertaining to your health care and VA benefits… DOCUMENT… DOCUMENT…. DOCUMENT… It has saved my ass on more occasions and always if possible have a witness… and lastly… Never lie to get what you want out of the system… the college educated ones running it do enough of that to reach the Milky Way star system…
