I agree it would be for a "A" client and pension condition related..

If You are a "B" Client, it should be covered as services for "B" client are as required

In my experience with daily living aids you need to call VAC and find out which doctor prescription you need (GP or specialist).
You then go to a service provider and they call VAC. They state they are a service provider and either VAC takes the call or connects them to Blue Cross.
Blue Cross then decides whether they approve or not.

One way I usually do it is I buy the living aid. Submit the bill to VAC
National Reimbursement Centre
PO Box 6700
Moncton NB, E1C 0T8

Make sure you include the receipt and prescription (and a short note with your info on the situation) and put your VAC number on each piece of paper. FYI they apparently hate all the pages stapled together so don't do it.

The processing time usually takes 3-7 weeks.

I'm trying to figure out my benefit grid...
POC 1-14 have check marks and an "A" underneath them.
My physical card has an A under 2,5,6,9,10,12

also, my VAC account says I have VIP services?
whats that all about?  first Ive heard of it.

I applied for and was approved VIP!
Funny thing... when I log into Medivae/BlueCross now, I have POC A 1 through 15 with checks, and POC B 1-14 with checks...
I'm not sure why this changed or what it means.
I was doing Voc Rehab, but I'm not going back to school anymore on advice of my doctor.

I wouldn't worry about the additional info part.

When I applied for mine, it was my CM who looked after everything.

No doctor or nurse was involved, that was awhile back.

Once your application is sent in, they will contact you letting you know the next steps involved in the approval.

Based on your personal file, you may be approved without having a CM visit you.

So I would just fill out and send in your application and wait for an answer.

Here is some FAQ;

The card is suppose to coincide with your disability, however, Medavie Blue Cross are real good when it comes to helping and answering questions on your card. Sometimes it's just a matter of contacting them and discussing upgrading your card, sometimes they contact a CM in your area and have that CM contact you where an upgrade can be discussed, they will ask you some questions and may require a visit, sometimes not, it all depends on ones situation.

Regarding housekeeping and/or grounds maintenance, lots of CSAT members receive that, it is paid twice yearly. This is something you should be looking to apply for.
