    • I don't understand where you are coming from on this.  I already get paid mileage for my scheduled appointments at the VA in Tallahassee, such as eye exams and physicals.  This is per Title 38 because I am rated at over 30% disability.  Title 38 also says that for medical services not part of a scheduled appointment should be paid one way travel [70.4 (c)].
    • You wont be paid for ANY travel to and from a VA Hospital unless it is demanded of you by the VA(i.e. C&P Exams)
    • Great Ideal broncovet, I sure do this.  make it a lot eazier to look for things. I have not put it in my computer  just yet, but will work on it tonight. AS for as having in Paper I guess its just a prefered preference , I like mine in CD-ROM a lot better , After I get it ''organized ... all you need to do is just print out what you need, and not have papers sheets string out all over the living room floor  for the pets to play with and mess up eh! I'll make a back-up disk also. Thanks broncovet.
    • Maybe I should have commented, but if they already have over 100,000, then they probably wont read mine anyway.   The VA has been using "non Doctors" already.  I actually tend to favor allowing nurses to do C and P exams, that is, if they have the requisite expertise/experince/training in the applicable field.   I had a C and P done by an MD who ADMITTED she had no training or experience in sleep apnea.  (Why was she doing a sleeep apnea exam?  Probably they had no one else.  There are just a few sleep docs in my town, and probably none of these want to work for VA for some good reasons).   The sleep apnea exam was unfavorable.  I contested the c and P exam based on the issue that the examiner was not qualified.  She simply had no sleep medicine experience and was unqualified to offer an opinion, even tho she was a doctor.  She could have had a Phd in Electric circuits, and that would not mean she knew about sleep apnea.   The main thing is that Vets need to be educated.  They need to ask the c and p examiner for his/her CV, or at least is she board certified in the applicable specialty.    Then, if the C and P exam is unfavorable, they should decide whether or not to challenge the competency of the examiner.  Vets often think if they have a "white coat", then they are obviously a doctor and know what they are doing.   Many years ago I wore a white coat and a stethoscope. I was a respiratory tech trainee, and often confused by patients that I was a doctor. My son married a doctor, and she relies heavily on her PA.  She trusts the PA, and signs her name to pretty much anything the PA decides.   My wife was a nurse.  She often called the doc and said, "this patient needs more pain med" or whatever.  The doc virtually always agreed, and did as the nurse suggested.  (In the nursing home, most of the time, the doc wont show up, sometimes for a month or more.  So, the nurse is obviously calling the shots, the doc is "signing off" on it.  
    • The CD works great especially if you have a long medical record.  Mine is a couple thousand pages.  Its easier to search.  I got my last cfile on CDROM, too. Reccomended:  Make yourself an "index".  It will take some time but save you time later.  My cfile was "NOT" in date order, or in any other logical progression.  Here is a little sample of what I call the "RBA (or cfile) index".  RBA INdex: RBA pages 1-56  BVA decision 2012.   Page 57.  VARO decision date... (Its your index, so you can put things like, "denied IU", or something to help you remember what this decision was about).   P. 96.  VAMC health records, 1 June 04- May 08 P. 128 C and P exam for tdiu   etc, etc. You can use "color codes" for your index, if you like.   For example, I put C and P exams in green. RO denials in Red. (Green means money).

New Info concerning Tipton County Tennessee car tags. :) ( Memphis is in Shelby County and Tipton county is just north of Memphis).

If you live in Tipton County and you are a Purple Heart recipient, you are eligible for free car tags. You can only get two tags. It is a shame that Shelby county doesn't do the same! I live in Tipton County and I just got mine a few days ago.

License plate policy is administered by the state. The county only collects the fees and issues the tags. Anyone in the state can get free tags if the have the PH. Also for 100% disabled, MOH, DSC/NC/AFC.

Here is the military plates and criteria.

Take advantage of the permanent restricted sport license (fishing & hunting) if you are 30% or more, also. It only costs $10 for life and you usually receive them within a few days of mailing the check to Nashville. You also will not longer have to purchase a trout stamp ($18/yr) or any additional stamps for deer season.

The tax relief is not just for combat related 100%, it is for all 100% SC diasabled veterans. I am 100% but not combat related, and the state approved my relief for my residence.
