    Legion stealing acronyms now? Are they OSISS?

    Not sure why you picked that comment.  OSISS is non clinical and is not considered a health service either.

    Anybody think new budget will have anything at all about veterans?

    Well here we go, we are about to find out where veterans sit on the priorities that this sitting gov't was voted in on.  I am not optimistic since their only priority seems to be refugees. What say you?

    New Help for Veterans to Transition into Civilian Life

    That is a function of the IPSC(who are about to face some changes), now the MFRC is involved.  This should be good.

    New Minister of Veterans Affairs: Mandate Letter, etc.

    Question about Vac Appeals

    Excellent response Blackberet.  The only thing I would add is if the OA was not in the original diagnosis, have your doctor assess it according to the injury. If it is supported as part of the injury already claimed, you will be raising a claim "consequential" to the original. An appeal is...

    "Conservatives to overhaul veterans' benefits .... to placate angry ex-soldiers"

    Significant analysis and consultation would be required with the Canada Revenue Agency to establish an appropriate definition of ‘net income’ and further analysis would be needed to compare it to other similar support programs. As such, further due diligence is required to address this proposal...

    "Conservatives to overhaul veterans' benefits .... to placate angry ex-soldiers"

    "Committee Recommendation 4 That the earnings loss benefit be non-taxable and set at 85% of net income, up to a net income threshold of $70,000, that it be adjusted annually to the consumer price index, and that for veterans who participate in a rehabilitation program, the disability award be...

    Decision Letter

    He has a favourable decision.  He has options when he has that, like reassessment after 2 years.  An appeal is not always necessary and can take up to the same length of time.

    Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Service (CFMWS)

    Hi Folks, Just thought I would share with you a recent outreach put on by this group that I attended.  The increase of benefits much like what is received by the US Military is beginning to become more so for us as serving soldiers, veterans reg/res much to the efforts of the subject line...

    VAC Client Card - 'A' client vs 'A&B' client

    You are absolutely correct Blackberet but it also hinged to B Client status which is additional benefits for SDO/SDA injured vets.  Using your example, if you have someone living with you capable of doing the work you can no longer perform or live in a condo where it is included,  you will not...

    VAC Client Card - 'A' client vs 'A&B' client

    Another related, little known fact.  All of those decisions can be appealed.(like a Case manager denying VIP).  I have a freind who was sent to the VAC doctor who approved VIP based on the veterans condition and it was later denied by the Case MANAGER.  Why then do they have doctors on payroll...

    Need Help Finding Photo

    The creation of an identifier will not change police protocol on stopping a vehicle. In fact,  it will likely only serve to further the stigma surrounding mh issues.  They already have protocol for mh issues.  The fact that he was triggered is never going to change anything in police or medical...

    VAC Client Card - 'A' client vs 'A&B' client

    Here's a excellent example of the difference between A & B Coverage (BTW once you have B, A is no longer relevant). Keep in mind that VAC has a list of approved medications that they cover.  Let's assume you are a A Client.  If you for example have PTSD and you're prescribed and approved...

    VAC Client Card - 'A' client vs 'A&B' client

    A Client is Still eligible for VIP.  The real difference is the client status.  A Client is injury specific,  foot injury gets you orthotics, etc.... When you are SDA/SDO (declared on decision letter) you are an A Client until you apply and are accepted as needing VIP (needs based), at that...
