My 100% s/c vietnam vet goes twice a year. Gets meds for neuropathy. I have BCBS from my fed job (am a retiree) and he uses that with Medicare A&B.

He is not permanent and he plans to have his civilian urologist complete the paperwork for his cancer C&P this year. VA will accept it in lieu of one of their contractors doing it.

He has received upmost respect from the staff and physicians at the clinic he goes to.

Cochlear implantation surgery is generally safe. The risks include:
Loss of residual hearing. Implantation of the device might damage any remaining ability to hear in that ear.
Inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) following cochlear-implant surgery in children. Vaccinations to prevent meningitis are generally given before implantation.
Occasionally, surgery to repair or replace a faulty device.
Rarely, the risks can include:
Facial paralysis
Infection at the surgery site
Balance problems
