THAT IS IT! You got the reg! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I've been running through the CFR since I thought of it!

southern,

38 CFR

§ 4.7 Higher of two evaluations.

Where there is a question as to which

of two evaluations shall be applied, the

higher evaluation will be assigned if

the disability picture more nearly approximates

the criteria required for

that rating. Otherwise, the lower rating

will be assigned.

Belle-

That truly sucks...but I agree on waiting until a calmer mood previals to proceed to the next step. Any chance on getting more than one doc at the VA to write an opinion?? Like getting the department chief to write a letter as well??

So, I'm so mad I can't see straight right now. They denied the increase again. I can't believe it, I really just can't understand how a DOCTOR'S OPINION, the DOCTOR WHO TREATS MY HUSBAND TREATS HIM! can be ignored for a lower rating. RATERS ARE NOT DOCTORS! DAMN, I'm pissed. I am sitting here shaking I'm so mad.

Belle:

I read the VA ltr you posted and you are exactly right! They even state in the letter at the end that although he does show some of the 70% criteria, it more closely approximates the 50% rating criteria, to who????? The rater?? Of course. Everyone on here is right, you all are going to eventually win. Unfortunately, they attempt to beat you down at every step along the way. A lot of the Vets just can't handle the paperwork and stress. Your husband is lucky that he has you and that you have taken his case over. I bet if it were just him, he wouldn't be able to handle it, right??? Well that's what the VA is hoping will happen, but they don't know who they are messing with this time! You go girl! Keep the pressure on, but like most have said, take a deep breath and refocus. This is just more evidence for you. By them stating that some of his conditions are in the 70% criteria, they have provided you with more fire power. I am in the same position with 2 appeals in, and I am not hurting monetarily so I just look at their ignorance as a savings account that I will eventually be able to access. Good luck and keep the posts coming. Every little fact can sometimes be expounded on by the pros here on Hadit.
