    • Look at it this way:  Appeal: You and VA are sitting at opposite sides of a table. Both of you have all of the same stuff in front of you, and there is a genuine disagreement as to what all of the stuff in front of you adds up to. The appeal process remedies the disagreement...whether or not you like the remedy is another topic.  Reconsideration: From your decision letter date plus one year, you can submit new evidence and have the claim worked as a reconsideration of the original denial.  Don't appeal unless the top scenario fits your issue. If there is any form of new evidence available, exhaust the year of reconsideration time that exists first.  -CHD505
    • Buck                PTSD meds and prostate meds are probably the culprits.  You do need a doctor to say that your ED is caused by the drugs you are using to treat your PTSD and prostate meds.  I would try and get an outside doctor who is not afraid of losing their jobs if they were to possibly support your claim for $100.    About half the meds I take would put a horse to sleep.  Get that $103 a month.  You deserve it.  All of us with these drug induced problems deserve it.  Opiates and any of the Benzo's tend to aggravate OSA.  This is what my VA doctors tell me.  Do you have DMII from AO exposure?                John
    • Overpayment letters can come from several sources. There can be overpaid Education benefits, such as keeping benefits from classes not taken or poor self-reporting habits. Overpaid C&P benefits can come from hospitalization with both Compensation and Pension, and usually bad dependent maintenance comes back to bite people on Compensation, such as forgetting to inform VA of a marriage or divorce. Also, overpayment letters can come from unpaid medical bills. The first paragraph of the letter will tell you where the debt was issued from, right before the amount.  -CHD505
    • Well I have Lost interest in sex  B/C of ED, wife trys but not enough  it won't stay erect so leaves her frustrated. I have problems talking like this to my female Dr's  if they say I ain't much of a man because of it  I will be very depressed then.  My  MH Dr (Phyistrist) is a bit rugged  she eyes balls me from head to toe every time I see her.( a flirt) she is the one that would not help me with my ptsd claim probably b/c I show no flirting back with her.  I believe its the PTSD Meds and Prostate Meds doing  it or the cause of it?  before I started taking these meds  I was fine down south no problems with premature or errections. No Dr has said but I never Ask? I have an ITF claim good until Jan 2017  3 months left. was going to file secondary Sleep Apnea  to PTSD but changed my mind on that when my MH Dr mention to me that the Meds I currently take for PTSD Depression / Anxiety, Will not cause sleep Apnea  she up my Anxiety meds about 6 months ago to higher MG and more to take each day if I need them. take as needed. Hell I thought about just taking the whole damn bottle and end this shit. I'll list some of my PTSD Meds on here  but right now I take 19 different Meds.  I need to sort through all my Meds anyway. ........Buck
    • So let us say a Vietnam vet was at a firebase,    support base or airbase that was under ground attack but who did not have 11B MOS.  I guess he must relay on After Action Report.     We had no combat action type badge and since I was not in an infantry outfit I could not get CIB even if I got shot at all day long.  I know back in the day there were vets who claimed PTSD from being under mortar and rocket attacks.  The VA fought this and the vet almost had to get wounded to get the PTSD claim unless he was in direct combat with the enemy.  From what BCMR told me was that a soldier had to be in an infantry unit; have an infantry MOS and have proof that he was in combat eyeball to eyeball to get CIB.

CaravanDan - sorry I missed this post when you posted it. The thing to remember is that anything the VA "tells" you could be a lie or just an error. It's easier just to make up something then to look it up, so I suggest, altho it's harder on you, that all claims or questions be written and that they make their answers "written." The saying goes "if it can't be read, it wasn't said!" You should get clothing allowance if it's for a SC condition. Same goes for the wheel chair ramp.

As for the copays, on meds, for SC conditions - if you paid any, you should file a written claim for a refund. You might have problems if you have insurance coverage, tho. They can recover costs but, I believe, aren't supposed to recover for SC conditions.

Okay Mr Rogers,,I will call Tomorrow and see what happens if I will get treatment of not,,last time I called a couple years ago I was Told NO treatment because of my type of Discharge,,,I said I was already service connected with a condition that has me totally disabled and was seen and granted wheelchair,,electric hospital bed and I had claims in for mental and other seconday conditions..Just as a side note I find it amazing how they(VA) nitpicks what i can get and not get,,they say yes I can have my legs braces made their but no clothing allowance,,yes I can have a cheap manual hook-up ramp to a van for my Chair but not a good electric one,,plus a slew of Co-pays they tell me I have to pay for my sevice connected conditions,,I'm sure they will ask too IF I do get treatment for my PTSD,,,
