I just received a text from PVA and my husband’s claim has been approved and we should be getting a letter in the mail making it official. Quite a relief!! I appreciate all your info and wisdom. I have new questions.
My husband is not involved in a clinic. There are 2 ALS clinics here in Houston. My understanding is the closest VA clinic is in Dallas (4 hours away). What is the best option for care? We do have Medicare Advantage insurance.

Just my two cents,

With Medicare and Medicare Advantage insurance... why drive 4 hours?

Maybe one of the members here is familiar your area and can recommend
one of the two.

But... some of your needs in the future can be furnished by the VA.

I go to the ALS Clinic at Wake Forest but my equipment comes from the VA.

I go to both.

Take your time... :)

I am surprised that Houston doesn't have a clinic at the VA. I attend both of the clinics in San Antonio. Many vets go to both private and VA. My VA clinic is good but the one I attend at UT Health is a bit more on top of things. The VA clinic here is only a year old but they work well with the UT clinic.
