    • Of course, its BS.  Dont make the mistake of retalaiting on her.  The best thing you can do is forgive her for whatever wrongs she has done to you.  Take the high road, and leave the low road's of revenge and hate for others.  
    • I agree with L.  Order a copy of your cfile, if you dont already have a current one now.   After you get your decision, you can decide if you want to submit new and material evidence under 3.156, or just file a NOD.  (Sometimes VA has the evidence, but does not read it and just denies it.).   If/when you file a NOD, you should try to Refute their "reasons and bases" for denial, based upon evidence which you suggest conflicts with the decision, in your file, or, that you submitted as N and M evidence.  
    • Been busy, apologize for the tardiness. Currently waiting for my C-file. Until then I am still getting all of my service illnesses taken care of by private board certified doctors by my company insurance I work for.  Some is out of my own pocket for instance the chiropractor and one time specialty physician. So as soon as I get the C-file, I will schedule my appointment with Dr. Steingart, and post my full review of what I know will be the favorable outcome for the IME.
    • Floridanurse, Not sure if you will get anything out of what I have to say, but maybe something will catch your eye. You mentioned teeth grinding in your post. Is it documented in your service medical/dental records?  Here's why I ask, I endured jaw pain to such a degree that it interfered with eating and sleeping. I had to massage my jaw muscles so I could chew my food, during the worst of it.  I went to the medical center a few times, they referred me to the dental clinic where they noted excessive wear on my teeth, but could find no physical causes. They deduced that the grinding and clenching was most likely due to work related stress. Fast forward 17 years and I learned I could claim it, did so, got denied. Filed appeal, got IMO/IME, with nexus letter stating at least as likely as not, citing SMR entries that noted the 4 year history of jaw pain. Denied.  Both times they reasoned that since it wasn't diagnosed as so in my SMR, they would not grant it. However they did grant that it is there and is valid, but is being recognized as a symptom of MH illnesses. Fortunately for me I do not have any SCD for MH. Or not so fortunate for me, but I do have a current DX of MDD recurrent with SI...from the VA, which puts me firmly in the 70% rating. If I had it service connected, that is. For me, though, it may not matter, but for you it may get you a secondary to PTSD claim.

Waiver Of Regional Office Consideration For The Amc?

92 posts in this topic

This may be a dumb question, but i am gonna ask for some input. If I had a claim at BVA, and it was remanded to the AMC should I submit a Waiver of regional office consideration to the AMC? I submitted one to the BVA so do I need to submit another one? I sent new evidence to the AMC today (Thank you Hoppy!!!) but should I send another waiver? If I do send the waiver in, where do I send or fax it to? what happens to my claim? Does it go back to the BVA?

This is a link to my BVA claim:

http://www.va.gov/ve...es4/1224885.txt

Thank you for overlooking my ignorance.

Accordingly, this matter is hereby REMANDED to the RO, via the AMC, for the following action:

Assuming the claim is at the AMC, and you wish to submit a waver, I'd send it to the AMC.

At this point, it looks like your file is at AMC.

Who knows?

Actually the AMC must take action as directed by the BVA. They should send or have already sent a letter to you, likely requesting information you may have already sent, and possibly scheduling yet another C&P. The confusion factor is whether AMC does things directly, or creates additional delay by going back to the VARO and asking it to do things that the AMC was directed to do by BVA.

This waiver is a great time saver. Each time the BVA remands the claim back to the RO to consider the evidence, it may sit a yr or so before they get to it.

Once your at the BVA, keep your claim in their hands until it's finalized. The AMC is dead time and remands back to the RO are long delays.

This link has a PDF attachment for the Waiver of Regional Office Consideration

that is used when you submit additional information / evidence to the BVA.

If the BVA does not get this signed Waiver from the claimant, in most cases they will automatically

by regs. have to remand the additional information / evidence back to your RO for their consideration.

Truth Wins --- sometimes you just have to walk thru fire to get there !

When you have the CREDIBLE & PROBATIVE EVIDENCE - NEVER give up !

I am not an attorney or VSO, any advice I provide is strictly my humble opinion

therefore not to be held out for liable.

Yes you can waive amc"s jurisdiction. I myself did this exact move ONLY after making sure all remanded development had been completed by amc. Amc will after receipt of signed waiver return files to the bva even if NO development has been completed therefore causing another remand from bva. BE SURE ALL DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN COMPLETED. Again i recently did this in july of this year and within 3 days of receipt of my waiver my file was returned to bva and now is currently with the vlj for review. I called the amc's directors office at this number (202) 530-9455 direct line) and she will tell you if all development has been completed and if so fax your waiver directly to her office FAX 202 530-9384. Deanbrt is dead on point about the dead time while at the amc, only to get the same results you got from the previous regional office. These people just can"t read and comprehend evidence. JMHO.
