As previously stated we applied for SCAADL in December 2013. It was a long drawn out process, getting denied, appealing and getting a final denial that was based on lies and omitted information.
I went as high as I could and got as loud as I could about the lies and pertinent medical information that was not disclosed. My husband was given another appointment to apply for SCAADL but not at Fort Hood. We went to San Antonio on July 18, 2014.
Seven months after we applied the first time. The Doctors he saw there found him to be eligible at Tier 3 which is high dependence. They both stated they couldn't understand why he was ever denied to begin with.
If he had been approved the first time through he would have been paid back to December when the original application was made. Because of the lies and omissions that application received a final denial.
That means that when we went to San Antonio his application started July 18, 2014. Nine days before his retirement date. They will not pay back to December even though it was their lies and and improper application process that caused the denial.
This seems like a pretty good scam the Army runs. That is 7 months of pay they don't have to pay because of their shady method of applying for SCAADL. I have yet to see this SCAADL show up and they are only obligated to pay 90 days after his retirement.
Well played Army....well played....
What are your feelings about the way they worked this?
As always, feel free to share. People need to be aware of how our soldiers are treated. If and when enough people speak out policy might be changed and soldiers in the future will not have to endure what we have.
