Hi, fellow vets, I’ve just gotten off the phone with the USVA prescription drug billing folks. I wanted to confirm what I owed them so I could pay up. The person I spoke to told me NOT TO PAY THEM.
Included in the most recent COVID-19 relief package was a little noticed provision that waived ALL our USVA drug co-payments retroactively back to early April, 2020 (I think it was 6 April 2020, but the truth is I was so shocked, I don’t remember for sure). If we’ve already paid those co-payments (I have), the amounts we paid are supposed to be refunded to us–though that will take some time, I expect.
I’ll be getting back a few hundred dollars. Those with more serious issues may get back far more. This qualifies as a serious “win” in my view.
