Phone Call From Amc To Sign And Fax Document For Board Of Appeals?

Question

Guest RJMacReady

I received a rather strange phone call from the AMC(Appeals Management Center)? to sign and fax a document referred to as a '30 day waiver letter'? for the Veterans Board of Appeals???

I presume that this means that my claim is denied again; which would be rather preposterous given that the injuries are all well documented and obviously occurred as a direct result from performing my duties in the military and through no fault of my own.

14 years of waiting and nonsense and even an apology letter from the VA that it has taken so long for my claims and for losing my records as well; so the VA requests C&P Exams again stating that the rating system had changed significantly since the last time that I submitted my claim and so I complied with their request and sounds like just to get denied again. This is absolutely unbelievable, apparently this must be how the VA gets rid of wounded vets with legitimate claims, they just keep denying your claims until you give up???

Have you received anything else from the AMC at all?

Did they farm out the claim and order another C & P? Did they issue a SOC or couldnt the person tell you that one is coming.

Do you have a vet rep?

Yes- I too was a claimant 14 years ago and then again in 2003.

.

The claims process has changed significantly and has grown by thousands and thousands still waiting.

It took them almost 7 years to read my evidence. The BVA read it and awarded.

It could have been awarded much sooner then that. The AMC in my opinion is just one more stall tactic.

What is the last decision or statement you received from them on your claim?

Hello and thank you for the welcome and help...

To answer the questions;

Have you received anything else from the AMC at all?

No I am just waiting on this mysterious amc '30 day waiver' form, whatever that is...

Did they farm out the claim and order another C & P? Did they issue a SOC or couldnt the person tell you that one is coming.

No originally years ago I had a c&p and my records were lost then found and then denied and I appealed and years went by and the va contacted me with the apology letter and request for a new c&p which I complied with and it went to the rating board at the amc and now they just contacted with the message of signing and faxing this '30 day waiver' to the VBA??? Makes no sense whatsoever and I am figuring that I am denied again I guess, but of course wont know until I actually see it, but having dealt with the us government , military and the va for so long I trust them as far as I can throw them since they are all from the same crooked axis.

Do you have a vet rep?

Yes, I have had the major repvets and I have been very professional and patient with them, but over the years or from moving or if the particular repvet wasnt doing their job have had to change repvets.

It could have been awarded much sooner then that. The AMC in my opinion is just one more stall tactic.

Quote"It could have been awarded much sooner then that. The AMC in my opinion is just one more stall tactic."

That is a very true understatement, I think this whole process was conjured up by uncle sham just to get rid of injured vets that don't continually pursue the miserable va and was developed just to get them to give up. If the va would just look at injured vets records which should show obvious service connection like mine and that I certainly didn't enter military service that way instead if these nonsense bs tactics that they use to get you to quit I think that the process would be a whole hell of a lot of a shorter wait.

What is the last decision or statement you received from them on your claim?

First one was several years ago and was a denial and so now after six months from my last c&p exam that I thought went rather well including positive statements from the docs, I am just waiting on this '30 day waiver' form nonsense, but I am sure that it is another denial of benefits though since that is their goal in life.

Did you get a copy of that C & P exam results? That will give you a leg up for what might be coming.

You have to be very careful about signing a waiver and what rights that you may give up in doing so. If you can scan and post and some of our experts will help you.

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
