The VA wants me to travel nearly and hour so they can give me my new Glucose meter, I am a diabetic, and not reimburse me for the travel. They can kiss my grits and send it to the local outpatient clinic 15 minutes away!

Is that the closest VA center to you? Is that the one you usualy go to? I know for me I usualy go to one thatls about 20 mins from me, but if they need me to go to the bigger facility about 45 mins away they pay me milage....as long as it's at their request for me to go there. Seems kinda odd.

If you have at least 30% disability then they will pay you for your mileage.So they tell me.

My father works in the VA's call center. If you had any idea the number of people leaching off the system purposefully driving long distances just to get milage for stuff as stupid as tylenol you'd pull your hair out.
