Question: 2 years ago the VA did a full hip replacement on me. Less than 2 years later, I had to have a non VA doctor redo my hip. Dr advised that the hip that the VA put in was recalled and also that the VA Doctor did not put my hip in correctly. As a result I am now on full Social Security Disability. I am trying to find out how to pursue a case against the VA for malpractice and inadequate care after my surgery. I have had no luck so far speaking to VA advocates etc. Can someone please point me in the right direction.

Question: Right before I touched my teeth, I talked to the doctor and asked about my dental insurance coverage. The doctor got hold of the insurance and asked about the coverage himself. He was then told that all fillings and the dental procedures are covered 100% with no exceptions. Therefore, I should be paying nothing. I called my insurance, and was told that somehow some downgrades have been applied to the plan, and it's now my responsibility to pay the rest of the outstanding balances.
