I  am in my third year of rehab.  For myself, it is geared towards completing school and transitioning into a new career.  I have been receiving phycology & psychiatric  sessions,a CanVet worker who helps with claims and schooling, and  if needed a coffee course.  VAC has been pretty good with covering any needs that have arised to help with my quality of life.  Not sure how it will all end up, but I am reassured that once you are in the rehab program you will be taking care of. For example if you finished your program and another need arises due to your condition, you can be placed right back into the rehab program. (correct me if I am wrong)

Do they make you go though that for EIA, PIA, if your physical abilities are to restricting for employment or schooling i have had enough of being tortured just to get what is owed to me. EG, SISIP.

Hence the Centric Veterans approach. I was told to apply for the PIA last year and denied at all levels. I was denied because I was taking part in retraining. Your conditions are more restrictive. You state you can not take part in the vocational rehabilitation part, you maybe able to bypass that part. You need to contact VAC and apply.

Best solution and also a way of getting better answers (Sometimes).

the thing is there is more than just voc rehab in the rehab program . there is other types of rehab in the program .

if you can no longer work you will likely not get voc rhehab but other types of rehab . say physical therapy and if the therapist suggests you would benefit from some time in a pool you could get some free pool time . your rehab may just consist of just seeing the doctors you are seeing now .

I was on the rehab program but not the voc rehab part . I was eventually taken off of it .

my CM told me what danny has stated if I ever have a need for it she could put me right back on it.

Danny, being retrained should have nothing to do with PIA. It is not tied to your ability to work, only PIAS is. Even the medical conditions listed for automatic approval of PIA, do not necessarily exclude a person from working, including amputation. So, if your ability to be retrained was the reason given for the denial, even while meeting all the requirements for the benefit, I would contact this MVA directly, to see if he can intervene.

wild it seems to me you will be getting the physical rehab part geared to your needs and abilities .

they will not be telling you to do anything but may ask you to try things .

they will ask you what you would like to achieve from this program .

you might say you would really like to get greater range of motion out of your right shoulder as it would help a lot in your daily living .

so they would develop a rehab plan geared toward that .
