How The Veterans Administration Helps The Visually Impaired

| No Comments


VetsAdmin.pngWriter Jane E. Brody has an article out in today's New York Times on how a man with macular degeneration discovered, via the Veterans Adminstration's advanced care vision centers, that he could still lead a productive and independent life.  You can access this uplifting article by clicking here.  But please note that these rehabilitation services offered by the VA are available to veterans only, and that, as the article notes, "neither Medicare nor private insurance" covers services like these for nonveterans with visual impairments. 

If you feel such services as described in this article should be, with proper insurance coverage, made available to nonveterans, contact your state's representatives and senators.  Click here to see whom to contact.
