From VR Small - Founder

Wow, if you missed our Tuesday@9: Next Level Business Time with Courtney Fairchild in honor of Women's History Month, you missed an absolutely intriguing conversation. Courtney shared several words of wisdom from her 25 years of business experience that could help you avoid some unnecessary pitfalls, and inspire you to keep pushing forward.

One concept Courtney shared was how it took her years to realize that she didn't really understand her business financials. Like Courtney, many business owners think because they are making some money everything is good, but in many instances there is so much more in potential profits being left on the table, when a business owner doesn't fully understand their finances. We don't know what we don't know, but it's never too late to get connected!

Listen to Courtney share her successes, failures, and what she learned along the way that has kept her business thriving for more than 25 years.

Courtney is a consistent supporter of the Veteran Women's Enterprise Center (VWEC), and we are thrilled to share her journey. Catch the full episode on our YouTube Channel at https://lnkd.in/gfJeE_2z.

***NEWS*** Veterans Are Still Being Required to Attend Unwarranted Medical Reexaminations for Disability Benefits ****

Report Number: 22-01503-65
Issue Date: 3/16/2023
VA Office: Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA)
Report Author: Office of Audits and Evaluations
Report Type: Review
Release Type: Unrestricted

Summary:

To ensure veterans’ monthly compensation benefits are consistent with their levels of disability, the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) requires reexaminations for veterans when there is a need to verify the continued existence or the current severity of a disability. VBA’s policy is to request reexaminations only when mandated by law or if necessary before reducing an evaluation (i.e., reducing a veteran’s disability rating due to improvements in the disability). While required reexaminations are important to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent appropriately, unwarranted reexaminations are a waste of appropriated funds, could cause undue hardships for veterans, and reduce the efficiency and timeliness of claims processing. The OIG conducted this review to determine whether VBA staff correctly followed procedures when requesting medical reexaminations.

The OIG found VBA can reduce unwarranted reexaminations. When VBA staff complete rating decisions on veterans’ claims for benefits, they may enter approximate reexamination control dates in the electronic system. The review team estimated staff erroneously established reexamination controls in 66 percent of cases (3,149 of 4,754), including for veterans whose disabilities were permanent and not likely to improve. This occurred, in part, because VBA does not require staff to cite objective evidence for why reexaminations are needed.

Once the reexamination control date arrives, VBA’s policy is for a “locally designated claims processor with expertise in review examination ordering” to determine whether reexamination is still needed. However, VBA did not define or provide criteria for such a claims processor. Further, it did not establish training requirements or monitor completion of relevant training. The team estimated claims processors requested unwarranted reexaminations when controls matured in 44 percent of cases (9,733 of 22,534).

Until VBA strengthens its reexamination process, it lacks assurance that veterans are being required to attend reexaminations only when warranted. VBA concurred with the OIG’s three recommendations to update guidance, enhance information systems, and train employees.

Beautiful story of an Army Veteran created & managed electric company and a 99-year-old Veteran that had issues with his home here in Richardson, Texas that is down the street from me!!! - Rob Johnson

My (Bill McCalpin) father - a WWII combat vet - lost power in part of his house late last week. Unfortunately, it was the part of the house where his AT&T indoor junction box was, so he had no phones, no TV, and no Internet.

I called Max Johnson of McKam Electric who had done work for Dad before. Previously, Max had not charged Dad for the first two visits, but Dad was more than happy to pay him this time. Dad is typical of the Greatest Generation - pay what you owe and don't ask for handouts.

Max sent two of his electricians over so that they could get to Dad as quickly as possible. In a couple of hours (and a lot of detective work), they found and fixed the problem. And once again, they left without giving Dad a bill.

While Dad appreciated the previous pro bono visits, he was determined to pay Max what was owed - after all, Max was having to pay his employees out of his own pocket. So, Dad called Max.
Max explained that he was from a military family himself and would not accept anything from Dad no matter what. Please understand that this is totally on Max's dime - he doesn't get any sort of tax break by not charging a customer. If there are employees to pay, Max pays them. If there are materials to be used, Max buys them out of his own pocket.

Maybe Dad can't pay Max, but I can give Max an "attaboy!" in front of my neighbors to encourage you to use McKam Electric whenever you can. Not only is Max a decent guy, but when you use his services and pay your bill, you are making it possible for Max to continue to do his pro bono work. And if you're up in the Canyon Creek area and see an older gentleman who looks better than any 99-year-old has a right to, sporting his WWII vet hat, say hi to George and "thank you for your service".

Adult Self-Care for Colds

Colds are caused by viruses, so they can't be treated with antibiotics don't work. There is no cure for the common cold, but you can ease symptoms and support your body's efforts to heal itself. No matter which symptoms you have, be sure to:

Drink plenty of fluids (water or clear soup), and stay away from drinks with caffeine

Don't smoke or drink alcohol

Get plenty of rest

Stay away from secondhand smoke

Prevent the spread of cold viruses. Wash your hands with soap and clean, running water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren't available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Try not to touch your face with unwashed hands.

Understand a fever

Take your temperature several times a day. If your fever is 100.4° F ( 38°C ) for more than 1 day, call your healthcare provider.

Relax, lie down. Go to bed if you want. Just get off your feet and rest. Also drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.

Take acetaminophen or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as ibuprofen.

Treating a stuffy nose

Breathe steam or heated humidified air to open blocked nasal passages. Stand in a hot shower or use a vaporizer. Be careful not to get burned by the steam.

Saline nasal sprays and decongestant tablets or nasal sprays help open a stuffy nose. Antihistamines may also help. But be cautious of the side effects. These include drowsiness and drying of the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Soothe a sore throat and cough

Gargle every 2 hours with 1/4 teaspoon of salt dissolved in 1/2 cup of warm water. Suck on throat lozenges and cough drops to moisten your throat.

Cough medicines are available. But it's not clear how well they work.

Take acetaminophen or an NSAID, such as ibuprofen, to ease throat pain. Follow package directions on how much to use and how often to take the medicine.

Veterans Ministry/VFC’s Story

Rob Johnson, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, comes from a family of six and a very high at risk neighborhood. “Joining the US Marines delayed entry program in 1985, I graduated from high school and went on into the Marines two days later. “

“My years as a Marine I worked in administration and was instructed that volunteering for temporary assignments would boost my career. So I worked in the battalion operations, motor pool sections and base chapel, rifle range to name a few ending up meritoriously promoted. A few months after reporting to Okinawa, Japan, I was asked by the commanding officer to serve as the HQ Battery, 12th Marines legal NCO (a Staff NSO position) for the rotating companies attached to the command. This led to my second meritorious promotion.”

“After serving 8 years I used the training and experienced from the military to help a veteran in nursing home and in church.” As years passed the interest had grown to become a veteran ministry and a outreach rightly called Veterans for Christ (VFC). Elder Johnson received several awards to include nominated twice by the Texas Veteran Coalition as patriot of the year, two congressional awards, Dallas Mayor Micheal Rawlings community award and a chance meeting the 44th President,...Barrack Obama in 2011 for outstanding service.

Guided by the belief that every life has equal value Elder Johnson’s Veterans Ministry encourages helping to any military personnel (soldier and veteran) and their families from a Christian aspect. Its main emphasis is to empower disenfranchised veterans, continued support for soldiers and coordinating needs for their families by bridging Veteran for Christ (veteran ministry in outreach mode) with the local church.
