Texas Veterans Commission receives $1 million in grants for highly rural transportation
 
The Texas Veterans Commission has been named as one of the recipients of a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Highly Rural Transportation Grant, which will provide more than $1 million to 22 counties throughout Texas to benefit approximately 2,500 Veterans.
 
Through the grant, Veterans who live in highly rural areas can receive transportation benefits for Veteran-related health care concerns. Many Veterans who live in those areas, defined as having less than seven persons per square mile, may not have VA medical facilities or non-VA appointed facilities nearby and require transportation assistance to and from appointments.
 
“The award of these grants provides us the opportunity to continue our mission to ensure our Veterans are receiving the care they deserve,” said Thomas Palladino, Executive Director of the Texas Veterans Commission. “Without adequate transportation to necessary health care appointments, these Veterans could end up missing appointments and these funds will help support our growing Veteran population in rural Texas.”
 
The Texas Veterans Commission will provide the grant money to the 22 counties which will then use the funds to purchase a vehicle up to $50,000 and be responsible for staffing and transportation plans that will assist Veterans.

Department of Veterans Affairs updates disability claims application; will reduce processing time
 
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that it is introducing a uniformed disability claims form to better serve Veterans, families and survivors. Standardizing the process by which Veterans file claims and initiate appeals will make it easier for Veterans and their survivors to clearly state what benefits they are seeking from VA and provide information that is necessary to process their claims and appeals. The new forms eliminate applicant guesswork, which often leads to delays in decisions and ultimately delays in receiving benefits. The new regulations go into effect in late March 2015.
 
For more info, visit: http://www.va.gov/opa/pressrel/pressrelease.cfm?id=2634
 
To start the claims process with a Texas Veterans Commission claims counselor, please find the claims office nearest you by visiting our web site:  http://www.tvc.texas.gov/documents/tvc_directory.pdf

VA Telehealth Services Served Over 690,000 Veterans in Fiscal Year 2014
 
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that its national telehealth programs served more than 690,000 Veterans during fiscal year 2014. That total represents approximately 12 percent of the overall Veteran population enrolled for VA healthcare, and accounted for more than 2 million telehealth visits. Of that number, approximately 55 percent were Veterans living in rural areas with limited access to VA health care. With more Veterans seeking health care, telehealth is rapidly becoming an attractive option, especially for those Veterans who don't have a VA health care facility close to home.
 
Veterans who are interested in receiving access to telehealth services should contact their local or regional VA clinic for more information.
