    • My C&P Results and why i'm disturbed
      Absolutely correct. 90 is very hard to be at. I'm at 90 even right now for my cumulative. I just completed an increase C&P exam for my Bil knees, right shoulder, and cervical spine. Hoping for 100% because my days OTJ are limited at best. But I definitely want to continue working. (My wife drives me crazy)
    • Curious
      Could be one of 2 more common reasons, 1 being that they will schedule you for a C&P in the near future, and the other being clear and substantive evidence in your SMR to grant the Cervical radiculopathy without an exam.  Won't know until you get their decision letter stating what and why.

    • Increase of MRSA from 0%-? unknown, having c&p exam on tuesday
      MRSA, as a disease process, is always going to be rated at 0% unless you're in the hospital with it and suffering chronic effects. I contracted it in 2009 during my one year staycation at the Seattle VAMC from a contaminated PICC line. After treatment with antibiotics the acute infection resolved. I test positive on any blood tests for it but it is in remission. The body does eventually build an immunity to it of sorts such that you become a carrier for it and can infect others but you, yourself are relatively immune to it unless your immune system becomes compromised. A disease like MRSA is much like Hepatitis B. You become ill and eventually recover and acquire immunity.When that occurs, symptoms abate and there is no outward appearance of the original illness. VA has to rate you at 0% as there is no compensable rating absent any disease symptoms. Merely being turned down for work in the medical sector because you are a "Typhoid Mary" carrier of sorts is not compensable. You have to suffer permanent effects such that it impairs your ability to physically work. 
    • Increase of MRSA from 0%-? unknown, having c&p exam on tuesday
      Is the "0" % a NSC rating, or a "0"  SC rating? "Do they go back to the date of the original claim?" Do you mean you claimed this in the past and they denied, and then you re-opened? Or is this on appeal from the original claim? Is it documented in your SMRS and Discharge Certificate?
    • Finally got my 100% for Malignant melanoma
      How did you get something for malignant melanoma? I submitted that in a DBQ just thinking it may become presumptive or secondary to something I already have.  
    • Is this a cue?
      Can you scan and attach here the decision that you filed the appeal on? And the date of that decision?   (cover your C file # prior to scanning it) The problem with cancelling an appeal then succeeding on a subsequent claim for the same thing is that they usually always give the re-open date as the EED.
    • Hypertension(high Blood Pressure)
      How long did you have HBP, before it was DX'd, treated and brought under control? Your answer doesn't really matter. It's safe to say, it didn't just appear overnight. In most cases, if not all, HBP is working it's Dastardly Magic on your body for a significant period of time, before symptoms present and are DX'd. If you were getting yearly check-ups, at least a 12 month window, right. Just because you have controlled HBP,  without a DX of CAD or other Circulatory Disease, filing a Secondary Claim will get Denied.  Ask your VA PCP to refer you to the Cardiology Dept. If you were to get a Nuclear Stress Test or a Heart Echo that turned up a problem, a Heart Cath would be the defining test for CAD. Semper Fi

The quick summary is that the 100% vet can apply for an ID card with paperwork (letter) from the VA. The ID card Form is 2765, the same as that used by dependents. An 1173 can be issued, but will be replaced with a 2765 (brown card) when it expires. (I suppose this is because they used to issue an 1173, or maybe issue it if the 2765 is not available.) From reading the reference, a vet's spouse would also be entitled to a card.

The entitlement is:

Commissary, Exchange, and MWR.

Other benefits may be available on a locally authorized basis. These will be minor things that fall under the base commanders discretion.

Try these 2 sites for military campgrounds and lodging. Also go to any BLM, US Forest Service office with your disability letter and get federal campground and attraction info. See if you are entitled to property tax reduction with your county assessor. Lots of goddies with the card. Congrats and stay well.
