I need to know if I buy OHI will that impact my spouse's (wife) eligibility for Champva? I am the 100% service-connected veteran and I use the VA for all my health care needs. My wife uses MEDICARE and Champva. I want to buy private health care insurance for me, only, not my wife. I need to know before I purchase my OHI. (210) 496-5796.
How are we supposed to get thru to get claim status if we are unable to get thru? The phone number has been busy for the last month. We are getting complaints from our patients and our providers as we have outstanding balances that we have no payments for. Please advise as what needs to be done.
Champva is a joke. Like most other "benefits" which turn out to be phantom. Every Vet that graduates - the VA get s bucket of cash. They get the money whether you use any "benefits" or not. There is a direct incentive to NOT provide you these "benefits" just look at the fking Lexus lineup in the "administration" parking spaces at any VA facility. They milk us like chattel - and you have to beg hundreds of clueless bureaucrats to get care. This is criminal behavior in my opinion and needs to be prosecuted. The Champva terrorists terrorize us by making us answer name rank serial kids name address shoe size - then when you want any info from them - system is slow - down. Its been YEARS and still no Champva ID cards - ON HOLD again with these assholes - sorry for the french, but fk I'm pissed. Most give up - not me - I will run up their dam 800 bill this month for sure.
It has been 30 days and I still am not referred to a Pulmonary, by my NP, and Champva Share Program for the wive of a Veteran. I keep hearing when i do make contact, "Well your not a Veteran so you can not go to the VA Clinic" Yes I know this and I have been told they will outsource me to a Pulmonary. No one calls me back. I have been on oxygen for more than 30 days and do not know if I am suppose to try and ween myself off of it. I have no instruction nor and calls back I am so fed up with this program. We the wives can take care of our disabled husbands, but do not get treated with any respect, nor get the care after being released from Hospital with "Follow up with Pulmonary doctor ASAP. 30 days I am still no where. I called Dr's on my own and they all need a referral I called back to the NP office at the VA and they say what are you calling us for. Yes she did forward that in her notes to the VA SHare Program call them. NO HELP.
Sounds like all the complaints are the same, no one can get through to 800-733-8387. A website like metricate.com would be helpful to assist with this problem. Or, offer another phone number for IVR inquiries only. I recently spoke with a rep who said their system changed to a web-based program and they do not have enough bandwidth to support all their users. I spent at least 5-8 minutes per claim waiting for the system to load.
My mother is in the hospital and they have been trying to get ahold of Champ VA to get the ok to put her in nursing home for therapy and recuperation. The numbers they have no one will answer the phone or the email comes back to them What number to they call to get ahold of anybody.
Trying to get through on the phone is like pulling teeth from an elephant and dont mention trying to find a working phone number i am calling from a physician's office and its impossible to get through for my patients.
I have been trying to reach Champva for two days to no avail. The recording for 1-800-733-8387 continuously states "all circuits are busy now" please try your call later. I need assistance with getting my medications. I sent in everything requested and now I am being told that there is a block on my account and I must talk to someone at this number. Please help. I suffer with Polymyositis and need the meds as soon as possible. All help is certainly appreciated.
I work at a hospital and have been trying all morning to get through to the Champva line for providers with out success (800-733-8387). Only getting a fast busy signal. I have a patient who has been admitted to our facility and need to complete notification. Please advise on how I can do this if your toll free number is not working. Any suggestions?Thanks.
I am a veteran with 100 percent disability my wife is enrolled in Champva we have sent in all receipts for medical bills my wife is approved payment back to 2012 now its been over a month of waiting to get paid from champa try to call and the recording says all lines just a lot of BS it is very frustrating.

You can NEVER get thru on the 1-800 . 733-8387. It says all circuits are busy. No other phone number in any page on the web site is available. We have a claim issue that cannot be resolved until we talk to someone. Borden Physical Therapy, 520-884-0001.
I am sending this from a providers office. I have been trying to call for two weeks and the phone keeps saying that due to heavy call volume no one can be reached. I am trying to check on a the status of a claim.
After calling this number four times yesterday and two times today, I am put on hold to speak to a Representative for at least 12 minutes EACH CALL and your phone automatically hangs up on me. I am needing to get out patient physical therapy benefits for a patient who is scheduled for next week. Is there another number to call?
