lol that's a good system glad I didn't have to go through that only 2 companies here that do that and only one of them will travel out this way at an increased rate of course.

in the past when I asked the CM came out and I had no need for quotes but than again nothing changed maybe I should have at least one.

Well last time I was briefed on this by VAC at a Stakeholder Meeting is the following:

Each "region" of said province is determined by Stats Canada for hourly wages/lawn service/snow removal etc.

Now if a VAC client can show that they cannot get said services at the set prices then you get your CM to come and reassess but you need to provide quotes from 3 companies to prove what you are getting for VIP is insufficient.

Great find RR

lol @ Robbie buds ive been there , not that this is funny , but that is around what I was receiving the last time we had a conversation here about the rate tables. probably slightly less.

I wasn't getting any of the peripherals chimney ect. and I was getting $10.00 an hour for house and grounds. that's minimum wage in this province.

I did bring it up a couple of times to no avail.

here is the thing he should first try the system and see what happens.

now mine changed by luck. blue cross called me out of the blue lol to ask me something strange ( don't recall what ) about their service sending me the cheques . I told them im having no trouble with the checks except the amount. anyway after confirming I was getting the amount I was entitled to she asked me a pile of questions about yard size house size ect. the conversation was over. two months later my amount more than doubled.

may be coincidence and DVA was going to voluntarily increase it that much anyway lmao . what the frack am I even saying.

anyway if he is unsuccessful I would get hold of the section at blue cross that issues these checks saying he has an inquiry about his last payment .

then when he gets hold of someone their ask them is the amount correct as it seems awfully low for his house size , area he lives in ect and who knows????

tell him to be nice to them as this is not their job and it seems they by no means are out to cheat anyone they fracking ROCK.

hope this helps

VIP SERVICES ARE YOU GETTING WHAT YOU ARE ENTITLED TOO

I received this interesting tidbit from an airborne brother whom actually called the number below and walked the shocked VAC Client Services Person through the tables below and asked why he was only receiving 1400 for all services combined?
She will call him later when she addresses the issue with her supervisor, and the WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND AND ROUND.

ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS TEENTITAN?
