Thanks for the info guys. I guess I'll just wait for the information package and go from there.

depends on what your covered for in vip some are just the basic i think around $1500 where i live pei for grounds maintenance that helps cover the cost of snow and lawn care don't cover it all but dam close then because of my physical injuries as well as the rest of my injuries i can't help do my 50% house work so they took in account how big home was how many bedrooms and set a price for home cleaning we managed to find a local that was in our budget for it does not cover the total amount be again was dam close if the cola was added to it that be great i don't see that happening anytime soon seeing vip is a grant to help offset the cost there is lots of answers her don't be afraid to ask more ?

Bruce72,

These days , I just get a payment deposited twice a year for VIP.
Not like keeping receipts and getting reimbursed like before.
Your letter from VaC will expicitily say what it covers.
And there's a VaC link somewhere for the locations.
i.e. Amounts for Vancouver ain't the same as Nunavut.

Don't sweat it.

Do I find someone locally to shovel the snow?

I'll be calling VAC tomorrow to find out the details,  but I'm curious. So I thought I'd ask you folks.

You will get a letter explaining how much money every 6 months VAC will deposit into your account. You will pay for the services from the money VAC gives you. There is no need to keep receipts for maid service or yard maintenance. I pay via E-interact as a record just encase VAC turns around and asks for receipts.

I talk to blue cross all the time. VIP is paid through Blue Cross but eligibility is determined by a team from VAC.

My spouse's VIP usually doesn't show up until at least 2-3 days after the renewal date.

Question payment for ground maintenance and house keeping are made twice a years. So if Vac tells you that the second payment will be release on the 8th of a month should it be showing up that day in your bank or it takes a few days to show up. I thought it would be the same day and made promises to my provider that I can't keep till money is in the bank.

Ok I have direct deposit for all my Vip claims and I use my vac account for all claims and paper work my average turnaround on travel claims is roughly 2weeks and the direct deposit is in when using my vac account no signatures required and no recites but I do have a folder for Vip because after every claim put in you get a paper copy of what you put in for also you can set up direct payment on my vac account I hope this helps if I read posts correct

Navrat; your suggestions would be excellent in a perfect world. I have been advocating for years to try and get VAC to catch up and use the "electronic highway".
But there are still too many vets who are not computer savy. Also funds to upgrade programming, security, IT training and believe it or not current generation computers on VAC's part have yet to be budgeted for all District Offices across Canada and PEI.
So until then the best thing we can do is keep track of our own submittals so we can calculate/estimate the amount of time it takes for certain claims to be processed.
Eventually them dang fancy picture boxes with smaller typewriters will catch on! lol

I wonder why VIP blue cross does not use direct deposit for VIP claims. It would save time waiting for a cheque and also be safer than having a cheque get lost in the mail. Better still it would be nice to beable to submit claims online or beable to fax it in
