Anyone using Champva for thier family insurance can now sign up for a myhealthevet account an d order refills online.

You’ll have to have your doctor fill them with VA meds by mail. Using meds by mail is great because there are no copays. If you use champva for prescriptions at any retail pharmacy you do have to pay copays, so this makes it easy and saves money. It has saved my fathers widow more than 300 per month in copays!!!

Thanks Tony292 and have a great weekend......
Tony292- think this tread brings up a good point.... about the US Dept. Veterans Affairs and how interpret laws, and why-possibly different VA rating offices give out widely divergent ratings same or similar conditions in the US and its many territories....

If interested please see some of the below web-links:


Laws & Regulations (per this listed web-article ""Laws & RegulationsAgencies create regulations (also known as "rules") under the authority of Congress to help government carry out public policy. Learn about HHS’ top regulations and how you can make your voice heard.")



Additionally, per Mike Chase in his work "How To Become A Federal Criminal," -"The Constitution mentions just three crimes of federal concern: piracy, counterfeiting, and treason. In 1790, Congress passed the Crimes Act, bringing the total number of federal crimes up to just around twenty." (Cited from: Chase, Mike. How to Become a Federal Criminal: An Illustrated Handbook for the Aspiring Offender . Atria Books. Kindle Edition.) additionally Mr. Chase asserts "By the late 1800s, however, Congress started passing broad statutes giving executive branch officials the power to make rules with the force of law. Sure, Article I, Section 1, of the Constitution gave Congress, and Congress alone, the power to make law. But Congress was busy, and tired, and wanted to spend more time focusing on the partisan bickering and general lack of productivity it had become so good at. Plus, as long as Congress was going to be regulating things it didn’t really understand, lawmakers figured it might be better to have subject matter experts do the regulating. So Congress began delegating its lawmaking authority to federal agencies. As a bonus, congressmen didn’t have to face the political repercussions when agencies made unpopular rules the way they would by voting on controversial bills." (Cited from the following: Chase, Mike. How to Become a Federal Criminal: An Illustrated Handbook for the Aspiring Offender . Atria Books. Kindle Edition. )

So it is possible, perhaps, that when the US Congress bass a bill regarding the US VA and veterans, it is potentially possible one get different interpretation in US VA HQ in Washington DC and something completely different by time reaches Regional or VISN and US VA system level...or US VA pass something most Congress not aware of, etc....???? This would be for super-moderators this web-site to clarify perhaps......as most of us this website not attorney's, etc..???

Thanks again Tony292 and hope this assists or generates some discussion....??????

PS: On US vets might find following interesting, once again, from Mike Chase in his work "How To Become A Federal Criminal," :

"In 2010, Barack Obama pardoned a man named Ronald Foster who had been convicted of a federal crime more than forty years earlier. His offense? He cut the edges off pennies to trick vending machines into accepting them as dimes. Foster pleaded guilty, was sentenced to a $20 fine and a year of probation, and promptly forgot about the whole thing. About forty-five years later, however, Foster applied for a pistol permit and was denied. That’s how he first learned his youthful indiscretion had actually made him a convicted felon for all those years. It turned out that the eighteen-year-old Foster—then a young marine at Camp Lejeune—had pleaded guilty to violating 18 U.S.C. § 331, which makes it a federal crime to fraudulently alter, deface, mutilate, impair, diminish, falsify, scale, or lighten U.S. coins. He had altered pennies in order to commit a nine-cent fraud each time he used one as a dime.2 Lucky for him, President Obama was feeling sympathetic." (In quotes cited from: Chase, Mike. How to Become a Federal Criminal: An Illustrated Handbook for the Aspiring Offender . Atria Books. Kindle Edition. ")

Additionally, for vet Rock Climbers or spelunkers.....might be interested below as per Mike Chase, page-203 (hard copy) "it s against federal law to reveal secret cave location" etc...
