    • No not on their own but if they cause you pain, then you can have them removed.  Trust me I know....I have had the surgery twice to include an anal fissure and it's no fun but I am glad I did the surgeries so I don't have to live with the hemorrhoids. You should have been seen by a GS or Proctologist for the hemorrhoids.  They have to determine the severity of them based on the S/C % that is allowed.
    • Go the VBA at your local VA Medical Center and ask for a copy of the C&P exam.  The contracted examiner will not give you a copy of it.  They are contracted with the VA and that is who they will get the exam back to....
    • I was thinking she wants her EED to be correct, as stated she is 50%S.C....Awarded in 2015  but EED dates back to when she was Diagnosed BY va Dr ...in 2009. I am completely lost in this post? she was S.C.in 2015 &Awarded 50%PTSD...if this veteran was denied or was lowballed for rating and S.C. in 2015...How will filing NOD Help? 2009-2015 is close to 6 years timeline to file the NOD 1 YEAR..unless she has been in Appeals all this time? RECONSIDERATION OR REVIEW? of claim back in 2009? for Correct EED? OR for increase in rating?
    • You need to hold the VA accountable.  They have to rate you on "criteria".  The criteria for SC is always the Caluza Triange:  1.  Current diagnosis.  BY A DOCTOR, (or competent medical professional, such as a NP).  Not a rater, shoe salesman, or  GS8 rating specialist.  The rating specialist does not "add to" or alter the doctors criteria, he is not competent to make a medical opinion.   2.  In service event or aggravation. 3.  Nexus, or medical opinion's link between 1 and 2.   Whether you have purple hair, drive a pink mini bus, or Voted for Trump is irrelevant.  If you meet the criteria above, you get SC.  The rating specialist can not decide the doc did not do a good job examing you based on the doc diagnosing you when you only met part of the criteria.  This is a judgement call made by doctors, not rating specialists.

Award Letter Time Frame

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering how long does it normally take for the award letter to be mailed. I received my award last week and the VARO is less than 5 miles away from my home.

Most importantly, I have received the funds but I still want to see the basis for their decision.

Can I get a copy if I just go to the VARO?

If the RO is that close, going might produce results. Others here said they have asked for it to be faxed to them.

The last award I had was earlier this year. I saw the deposit one day and got the award letter in the mail the next day.

Congrats on your win!

What the heck is " receipt of information confirming entitlement"?

Excerpts

All VA Regional Offices Training Letter 10-04 June 14, 2010

The timing of payments is governed by court order. Payment is required to be

received within twenty-one days of receipt of information confirming entitlement (the

twenty-one day period begins once the whereabouts of a class member is

known).
