I was authorized by the VA and Healthnet for my disc replacement surgery, because the VA doesn’t preform that procedure. It was my second one, and the first one was done while I was waiting for my benefits to be given. I am now being held accountable for bills relating to my surgery because the VA claims that the costs are not related to my service-connected disability. I’m trying to get people involved that can help but so far it’s been fruitless. I shouldn’t have to pay anything, but that’s the VA.
