THU. SEP 17 - VETERANS CORNER RADIO SHOW - HOST - BILL HODGES
3:30 p.m. WSCO FM 96.3 SUN RADIO, SUN CITY CENTER FL. Guest:  Thomas Hines, Assistant Chief for Health Administration, James A Haley VA Hospital.  Would it surprise you to learn that not all veterans get VA medical coverage? Thomas Hines is an expert working at the VA who knows what it takes to get coverage. It can depend on years of service, where you served, how you served, when you were deployed, how much money you make as a family, and 100 other variables. The takeaway from this interview is that you, if you are a veteran, should not disqualify yourself by not trying for coverage. The VA staff is ready and willing to discuss your current condition and evaluate your eligibility for coverage. Thomas points out that the rules are changing constantly and just recently with the passage of the “Blue Water” bill in congress, many sailors are now eligible that a year ago were not. So listen in and learn how you can apply.   If you have no FM Radio or if you are out of our broadcast area, go to the station's web site on Tuesday and Thursday at 3:30 p.m. (www.WSCOFM.com) and click on "LISTEN LIVE"
