After nearly three years of getting to know the Veterans of Walsh County a bit better, I am head- ing back to college this summer. Operations are well underway to finding a replacement to sit where I am now, and am confident that Walsh County will continue to be a leader in the field of Veterans benefits. I wanted to reach out to at least a few of my loyal readers and fol- lowers and say that I will be here through the month of July. So con- tinue encourage your friends and neighbors to stop by my office for assistance. I'm still here. For the informational part of this column, here are a few frequent- ly asked questions and answers: 1) How can I qualify for hearing aids from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)? You may receive free hearing aids from the VA if you have a serv- ice-connected disability rating for hearing loss or tinnitus. You may also be eligible for heating aids if you are drawing compensation from the VA for any disability, although a co-payment may apply. The state also has a grant program that can help low-income veterans pay for hearing aids, although this program is not administered by the VA. 2) How can I qualify for eyeglasses from the VA? The criteria for eyeglasses are similar to hearing aids, except serv- ice connection for an optical condition may be required. 3) How can I qualify for medication from the VA? You must be enrolled in the VA Health Care System to qualify for medications. Co-payments may apply for non-service connected care. Treatment for service connected conditions is free in VA facili- ties. 4) My neighbor gets his medications from the VA, and I know he has more money than I do, yet I've been told that I don't qualify because of my income and assets. Why is that? There are several criteria that may be used to establish health care eligibility. You may be exempt from means testing if you are a com- bat zone veteran of the current conflicts; are a Vietnam veteran; were awarded a Purple Heart Medal; or are receiving VA disability com- pensation. Also, veterans who enrolled prior to 2003 did not require means testing. 5) Where do I go to get more information or apply for benefits? Contact the Walsh County Veterans Service Office at (701) 352-5030 to arrange an appointment to discuss benefits and complete the ap- plication forms.
