Great Information!!! I am going to print this and give to a friend who is 100%PTSD, with a combined 80% for medical issues. He did a claim in the last 6 months for "Housebound",
SMC-S and it was denied. I will show this to him so he can do a NOD.
Just one question, could his denial be a CUE? I have never done a CUE so I am not sure how to advise him. Do you file a CUE the same way as a regular claim or do you do something else. I would almost advise sending this OIG article with the CUE.
Thank you again for the information and all the best to you and your family!!
We are in the Boston Area....so the Boston RO.
Only thing left is the BVA judge decision, already went through remand and C&P's. been 90 days since the C&P's were finished. I think my case got so messed up through incompetence, they probably don't have enough experts to figure out what's going on...
This is crazy, I started a claim in 2004, they finally got around to making a decision to deny it in 2008, finally made it to the BVA in 2010. Then in 2015 it made it to a VLJ who REMANDED it back to the RO, the. It was sent back to the BVA in July 2015 and it finally made it back to a VLJ in late July of 2016 and now on the 29th of September 2016, it's been REMANDED back to the RO. This is making me mad because I don't see why it had to be remanded.
Have anyone had an appeal REMANDED twice? If so, what is usually going on where it would be a need for that?
At the Det VMC, you need to have an order put into Prosthetic s, before you can pickup supply's. I prefer to order everything via MHV Secure Message.
Any Phone or SD Card Download interpretations, orders for equipment or simply Secure Msg's, will usually appear on your MHV Blue Button Site under Clinician Notes.
