Q297: I am in need of assistance to help pay a co-pay of $464 every 90 days for urinary catheters. While the injury to my L4-L5 that is causing bladder problems happened while in the military, I have no proof of it. The vertebra finally gave out in 1996 severing the nerves to the bladder and causing me to have to use catheters six times daily. Medicare pays for 80% leaving me with the $464 co-pay. Is there any possibility I can get help from the VA with this co-pay?

A3: Dear fellow veteran, please seek the advise of a certified veteran service officer (VSO). Some VSOs are good while others are not. Find someone who can assist you thoroughly. There are many avenues open to you for disability but you must speak to a VSO who is able to help you. Good luck. (AB) 11/21/19
