I tried to get some info on that table but like I said VAC is sitting on that one and not letting it out. I talked with him last month trying to get the info.

What everyone needs to remember here is if your grant is falling short you can call your CM for a re-assessment. At that time you can tell your CM you found the cheapest (only word I could think of) service provider and you are still short.

From the conversations with my CM to the ADM in charge of VIP they always say the same thing...re-assessment.

This is a new program that a lot of veteran organizations are watching and if it doesn't work then we will be all over it.

well buds ive been trying to and hard but i aint got a dam thing.this should not be a state secret as we the vets need a referance as it seems thoes in my are the ones i spoke to on this issue are being given their rates from the wrong frackin table.it seems its verry easy to rob disabled vets by showing them one table and not even admitting another one even exists.

Well my service provider has told me that thus far every VAC client she has has received less then she has been billing directly to VAC. She indicated she was billing $24.70/hr for housekeeping and her clients have received an equivalent of about $15.00/hr and most of her clients are elderly vets and are extremely confused of the whole thing.

RCN...........from the way i read this note from the tables no current VIP recipients should have a lower grant amount coming it should be the same as charged last year even if its higher than whats in the table for your area.

Note : The National Rate Table is not used to convert current recipients of VIP housekeeping and grounds maintenance services from the Veterans Independence Program to a grant. The initial grant amount is calculated based on expenditures incurred in the past year and current needs. The Grant Determination Tool (and the associated National Rate Table) is used for new applications and to assess current needs when there has been a change in circumstances for the recipient.

VIP Grant?

Post by Ex Member on Wed 24 Jul 2013, 19:07

Does anyone know how this works now! My VIP runs out 28 July 2013, and the grant begins. Do they deposit the grant on the 29 of July or is it six months from the 28 of July? Thanks

Ok it ran out in july got my last payment in that month like every other month around the 6th and will get the new 6 month payment on the 26th of july, confirmed this by phone and will try to let you know if Money is in bank tomorrow or Monday, so NAVRAT it should be the 28 of Aug that you get your 6 month chq. You can always call DVA and confirm.

Nav, I got a letter telling me what they were going to give me as well as indicating that I should receive 1/2 within the next two weeks. My anniversary date was July 20, they reduced my housekeeping by almost $400 and grounds maintenance by about $500. Also stated I had till November to submit receipts for services that occurred prior to July 20. Looks like they are doing their damnedest to screw us here too.

nav I got a call before mine started from blue cross they asked a bunch of questions witch I answered.then I asked a few myself one was why im getting minimum wage while others not paying service providing directly are getting as much as 19$ an hour and ones that are are getting the top rate on the first table. I was told by them the ones that send me the money it was probably an oversight and there is only one table they have it and its the only one they go by. my annual went up $800.00 a year. if you get a call from them make sure you talk to them nicely as not only your cm can give you an increase they can to.
