Dear Vetadmin...I dont know where to turn concerning the evr form I must fill out. Went to the local VA guy and he says I must fill out the form 21-8416 concerning ongoing medical expenses. Back when I filled out the claim form I had innocently said I charge mom all income for caring for her. I thought by having the Dr. paper stating she cant take care of herself was proof she needed 24/7 care. And now it seems like I have to have paper "proof" or a caregiving contract in place about it. Still waiting for the VA guy to call me back cause he is not sure of this or that. I cant wait much longer...I am so fearful. Can you give any advise...do I need a lawyer now before the form is due. Can we talk on the phone maybe?
