Why should I get a doctor's prescription?
Info on VA, Workman's Comp. cases, out of pocket costs for Schedule "A," income tax.
For the Disabled Rider, a doctor's prescription is invaluable to verify the need for your durable medical goods. Adaptations from this list are very useful, with a prescription presented to the VA, for payment, if you are 100% VA disabled. The DAV organization is the best contact to fight for your rights. The VA will try to deny the claim, but the law , at this time of March, 2016, says that they will pay for two vehicles to be adapted every four years. That includes either a bike and a car, a bike and a truck, or a car and a truck.
This suggested list of MD adaptations carries a lot of weight for Workmen's Comp. cases also.
If someone in the family is still paying income tax, the prescription presented before purchase listing the needs of the rider, can be deducted under schedule "A" of your yearly filed income tax. The original script should be kept in a safe place and copied yearly to deduct all costs tied to the durable goods mentioned. The script is good for your lifetime. You are able to yearly deduct the cost of that purchased adaptation, the install costs, yearly upkeep, painting. The IRS needs your receipts and a copy of the script if you are ever audited for your out of pocket, schedule "A," medical expenses.
