    • Ok, I got a partial decision last week.  Along with the decision letter, I got the usual stuff, the 4107 (your rights to appeal our decision), 21-0958 (instructions) and the "Where to send your written correspondence" piece of paper. Also, I got a piece of paper that says, NOTICE St. Paul Restricted Access Claim Center, cover letter. Apparently, if I send a appeal or nod, I'm supposed to use this cover letter?  I think?  Not sure? First, that (St Paul) doesn't jive with the where to send paper. And second, am I special, or something?  Probably something, Hamslice    
    • The only bad thing about all the different kinds of insurance is, esp. the VA, they are going to ask for that information every time. I bet they can slow the whole insurance industry down too, including your timely payments which may make you delinquent in your payments. Being over insured is stupid, but the paperwork aspect is a huge cost that I never see considered, esp. with the VA. If there was something backed by USAA (auto insurance), that would make it easy for me and I'd pick them. The VA may not actually be bad for primary care, except you need physician training, lol, and emergency care would not yield even to those who had physician training. A huge problem with the VA healthcare is they hear, see, or speak no evil; and that ultimately may cut their usefulness completely out of the picture (100%) once SSDI is obtained. That is definitely one BIG problem with VA healthcare and why you see so many Sad Sacks in the VA Hospital.

    • well I heard through the grapevine that SSA change some guidelines for 100% veterans in 2008  and use the VA Evidence  to approve the SSDI Claim...how true that is  I don't know?? but back in 2003 when I got TDIU P&T I filed for SSDI and was denied twice....they said my evidence did NOT Qualify to  SSA guidelines to be totally disabled  and denied me...so I waited until I turn 62 and applied for early SS Retirement   and get 957.00 month   but here lately I been thinking about refiling for SSDI b/c I'll be 65 on my next Birthday..if I live that long? I may hire a Good Experience SSDI  Attorney...still just thinking about it...I know I need to do something pretty fast...I would like the medicare Insurance  for outside health care and second opinions  rather than count on the VAMC. Good Luck to you Reiredat44   ..............................Buck
    • Ok, so now that the smoke cleared, Back to gathering evidence, 3rd request for evidence from VA, nothing needed from me. New end date 2/11/2017 I think the are reading this and playing with me, LOL, Hamslice

Flat Feet

7 posts in this topic

I was diognosed with flat feet condition moderate to severe asymtomatic when I join the army twenty years age.

My physical before retirement states that I have severe flat feet asymtomatic.

Can this be claim?

Are you symptomatic (foot pain) now? If not (you're still asymptomatic) probably not. Since you had moderate to severe pes planus on induction and it's severe now, but if without any pain, you don't have an aggravation. I take it that you haven't had

any medical teatments between discharge and now? (Prosthetics, like the Thompson-heeled shoes are a medical treatment.)

Read this with interest. Several entries in my military medical records attend to my flat feet/varicose veins edema problems that were on again/off again chronic conditions on active duty. Am treated by VA with orthotic inserts/support hose now every six months. May have applied for flat feet disability compensation upon reitrement years ago, wonder if I have chance to "re-apply" now, wasnt represented very well at all and have been going at issues with help of Hadit family - "Go Team!" Again, just wondering if I have a chance - thanks.cg

Cowgirl, if it's in your SMRs, you still have it and you've been treated for it along the way, go for it. You might get SC - 0%, but sounds like you should get at least SC. I'm guessing that you'll need some of that unpleasant ache and pain to get a compensation percentage.

I was drafted in 1968 and no flat feet and when I separated I was noted as having flat feet in 1970. In 1991 I applied for benefits and was awarded flat feet in 1992. During my C&P I answered truthfully that I had problems with shin splints and pain and that when I was tired my feet hurt. I was awarded 30%.

I think I was lucky. I have no arch in either foot.

Thanks. VA ortho doc has current very descriptive entry in my VA medical records. I am encouraged now to get IMO. Guess my next step is to ID specific SMR entries to submit for nexus, not sure if there is clear statement of "flat feet"ples panus", but several treatments for footpain/swelling. Now aches, muscle pulls and pain are constant,am thinking lower lumbar/D3 may be secondary, will see what IMO recognizes then back to VA.cg
