On using a VED...

VA WILL PAY FOR A VED

If you happen to be a Veteran, the VA will issue you an Osbon at little or no cost to you, depending on your present income, etc., after meeting with one or more of their doctors and establishing your PCa medical history with them, and even if the VA did not perform the actual treatment for the PCa. A prescription from your doctor and some copies of your medical records regarding the RRP, etc. would be helpful. (I'm speaking from personal experience here.)
