Posted on 03/15/2014 9:16:12 AM PDT by Salvavida
I just received a letter from the Veterans Administration. Included is VA form 10-10EZ, "Application for Health Benefits".
The form touts that once a veteran is signed up, the will have "met the new requirement to have health care coverage that meets the minimum standard".
If I already have TRICARE for life, why would i need it? Looking at the date they want, I can only come to one conclusion: TRICARE WILL BE DISMANTLED.
There is no other reason. If you look at the intake form, it also asks for intrusive data (real property, bank accounts, property, etc.) And the form holds you to 18 USC 1001 for concealing a material fact or making a false statement.
What does my benefit have to do with my bank account and possessions? If I gave up my youth, and destroyed my body for 20 years of service, why does the VA need to know these things? What is the database? Is this meant to manipulate the numbers for Obamacare prior to the mid-term elections?
Knowing this administration, it’s probably to pump up the enrollment numbers.
Send the information to Drudge, FNC, Rush, Levin, et al.
I’d be really tempted to tell them to take their 10-10EZ and stick it where the sun don’t shine.
Scan the document and post it here and across the interweb.
The government’s thanks for its military.
In a competitive world, a new insurance company would be saying, “Check us out. We’re better and less expensive.” This is noticeably missing from Obamacare.
I got a notice that your link was an untrusted site. If it’s run by the government, that’s understandable. I chose not to access it.
The website you indicated comes up on Mac as follows:
Safari can’t identify the identity of the website you mention.
Could it be a fake site?
I was wondering the same thing myself. Is the security certificate legit?
We live in a country governed by consent of the people. I withdraw my consent.
Even the blind could see this one coming.
connection is untrusted
I have Tricare For Life, and I have a yearly physical at the local VA clinic. Have not seen this letter, but will keep a look out for it.
It’s my understanding that VA benefits are and have been need based except for a few veteran categories. When you enter the system, they do ask questions about your net worth including savings, checking, value of your home, pensions and IRA’s.
Your benefits are determined by your net worth unless you served in combat or are a disabled veteran. For me, they pay for very little and there is a co-pay.
I know nothing about this, but I found a link.
Someone receiving VA care should probabley read this to determine any details that would apply.
How Does ACA Affect VA Health Care?
In general, ACA does not appear to affect current
VA health care benefits, eligibility, or cost to
However, the VA anticipates a net increase in enrollment as a result of the ACA. It could be
assumed that one reason for this increase is the individual shared responsibility provision in the
ACA, which requires each individual to have minimum essential health coverage, qualify for an
exemption, or pay a penalty when filing his or her federal income tax return.
According to the
VA, the increase will result from eligible non-enrolled veterans enrolling in the VA health care
system to avoid the shared responsibility payment.

Maybe the VA is using the same outfit as healthcare.gov
