Another complaint about the same thing. I complained before about the Veteran's Administraion charging my insurance co, Blue Cross, for an office visit I made for treatment of my eyes. In 1943, in combat, I stepped on a land mine and it blew up in my face. I lost one foot and one eye and had sand blown into the other. That is a service connected disability.
But now when I go for eye exam, they charge my insurance co, and ultimately me, for the visit. It doesn't seem fair.
I reported the situation to Blue Cross and the representative did not seem concerned about it. "You had treatment. Of course we pay for the treatment." Oh, well. Somebody is getting screwed, and I think it is the insurance company.
Furthermore, the Veteran's Administration has made THREE claims for the same visit. One for "surgery", one for examination, and one for treatment.
All together the VA is getting only $36,,,but what the hey...?
