Ok my husband has Ann appeal in since11/12 for chronic renal failure secondary to diabetes. There is a new claim in ebenifits, which we did not do. It is saying for cornary heart disease RFE. I'm assuming that means renal failur evaluation. So I'm assuming again they are going to try and approve it asso with the heart disease. We put in for the heart disease 7/14. He was diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy by his private nephrologist. What are they trying to do? The appeal is still up. We have not gotten anything from them. No docket no etc. but he would loose a lot of back pay is what I'm thinking. Any thoughts ? From anyone.
QTC is a waste of time. Due to Present Value of cash, Vet's should be able to sue QTC for incompetent and biased reporting on the federal records of a Vet. If they do provide a competent educated tester, they are right out of school and don't know their ass from their elbow. What the VA does not comprehend, their no interest rate decisions don't compensate the Vet for years of waiting on this stupid one year delay game of tag they play. "Oh, you switched your claim around. Start all over!"
The testing rules are plain to see, and yet we have to spend thousands of dollars getting an expert to say the same gd thing we said, and be delayed one year every step of the way. Good luck on getting a fair exam by QTC. It should be called the VA-QTC to be more representative. How people can get tested and NOT use QTC is what I want to learn how to do.
Gotta say your voices say the same thing mine do, pretty much.
Since you were DXd within a month of leaving the service, that will pretty much give you the SC link, in addition to your psych eval a few months earlier before you left AD.
I would hazard a WAG and say most likely 70% if not 100. The reason is that for the SI(suicide ideation) is in the 70% rating bracket. And some of the other things may push you to 100%. And if not, then the IU certainly would.
Need to post a redacted(all identifying info blacked out)copy of your C&P exam from the 23rd, on here, so more knowledgeable folks can give you a better idea.
