Retired Veterans

Can't Post | Private Reply
I received the following information from the good folks at American Post Post #9 in Ajijic.
Thought I would post as others may be interested.

Although some of you are aware of this new Clinic in Ajijic, it is good news for US Military Service Veterans that the Medijic Clinic will accept patients covered by both:

1. Tricare
2. Veteranís Administration Hospital patients

Apparently, they have consultation rooms and are working on a 24 hr trauma center,
They also will take many U.S. (and other) insurance for $9 co-pay, can check to see if
they take yours at the office or on the website.


The website is: http://www.medijic.com/

After reading about the clinic's acceptance of VA benefits, I see that it is ONLY for those with a disability rating.....not regular VA care. It might behoove all to be fully aware of the differences.
Unless, of course, we don't understand what they are saying!

Thy do all of the billing thru there insurance company to the VA and Tricare, 3 or 4 month wait they know that going in, just go and get treated. Dr Dickson says my case is very complicated and there needs to be a study as to what is going on, first step see the Psyco guy and, he doesn't like the medicine that I take so, work on that, very caring ex Navy. Spent 1 hour no cost to me. it's about time the retired Military gets a break go see him, support there effort. They are brand new so look as to what they are planning to do not to what is right now.
