Just an update:
I went to the DAV this morning & they looked up my file electronically. However, they could NOT find anything in my file relating to the alleged debt.
However, they confirmed that the VA has already garnished my wages before they even sent out the letter, lol.
They gave me some contact information (which I already knew about from reading posts on here) to resolve this. I'll keep an update on here for anyone that might possibly be going through this in the future.
Was your above DBQ posting from your Actual MH C & P? Was the Dr (Psychiatrist or Psychologist PhD?) VA or Contract?
Can't say I'm familiar with straight MH DBQs, primarily PTSD and now Thanks to FlNurse, MST/PTSD DBQs. I thought the Drs were required to opine regarding each of the "Checked" Symptoms.
Any chance you could post the actual redacted DBQ?
Bronc, back in late 80's I read in a Men's Health Mag regarding the Health Benefits of donating Blood, started doing it yearly.
Had Quad BPass Surgery 06, haven't given blood since. I don't think they can use the Blood donated by CAD Vets. I've been thinking about discussing the Pros & Cons of loosing a pint yearly, with my VA Cardiologist.
Thanks folks. I was diagnosed with PTSD by a VA physiologist in 2011. I put in a claim for that and my knee the same year. I no showed to the C&Ps and was denied. Skip to the beginning of 2012 I ended up having to do some inpatient treatment for substance abuse and ptsd. I was reevaluated there and then again confirmed the diagnoses. The first diagnosis was under DSM-IV criteria and just 2 months ago i went back to the doc and we confirmed the diagnosis using the new DSM-V criteria. I resubmitted a claim for ptsd and my knee this June. I had a c&p where the doc did not diagnose me with ptsd but said i showed with depression anxiety and something about borderline personality disorder. My question is what are my chances of getting service connection for ptsd anyway? i mean ive seen my doc for pretty much the last 5 years and have been treated for ptsd ever since. i dont understand how a doc that has seen me 1 time for not even an hour can say that he cant confirm nor deny a diagnosis because of "substance abuse and i need 6-12 months of not drinking before a solid diagnosis can be given". will the rater take into consideration all of the documentation? how much weight does the c&p have compared to 5 years of documentation? im losing my mind here. i keep watching ebennies like its gonna change and show me something positive.
Id like to add that i have found out that this C&P doc works for or used to work for a company that tries to disprove SSD claims. Not sure why the VA would use him...
I will add this. I claimed sleep apnea secondary to ptsd and despite his not diagnosing me with ptsd he did write up a solid nexus for me (i believe it to be solid). Not sure why he would go to the trouble of doing this if he doesnt feel i have ptsd.
