I agree with you, we have to be our own best advocates and stay on top of things but I can honestly say that ChampVA is not timely at all. If I send in a claim, it takes them months to send it back usually saying there is an error (which is usually bs) and I resend and get my check but I have gotten to the point that if it isn't a significant amount of money I don't even bother anymore, more of my time than it is worth. Funny that you also had to get you congressman involved. SAD!
Congratulations, it sounds like you got an increase in your hearing loss. As far as PTSD denial, then you should likely appeal this denial. Make sure the big 3 are in your records: Current diagnosis of PTSD, in service event or aggravation, and nexus statement.
If you post the decision "reasons and bases" for denial of PTSD, we may be able to help wording a NOD. Cover your name and address. I suggest a new post, on PTSD denial so its not confused with your post on hearing loss.
Thank you Flores for your response. I should find out here in 2 - 3 weeks. Those FDC are moving along fast these days. If this claim gets done next month it'll be under 90 days. I did file only one disability and the package was solid with an IME and treatment records. I'll post to this thread when I have the results.
Well I'm not sure if she does treat it?she is an( Internal Medicine Dr) she is very young and just finished her Internship in 2014 and became an MD ..she has about 2 years as a MD at the VA.
and what makes this so hard for me to ask her she is a very attractive woman...now don't get me wrong I'd never you know what nor do I flirt or anything like that she is single but still.
I been thinking about asking her about this for a long time but just never got up the damn nerve.
so since my MH Dr got me on these med's should I ask her?
