Question

Hello everyone!!! I first want to say thank you. This site is a wonderful place of information and support!!! My husband is 36 y/o PTSD veteran, He was granted 100% temp 6 years ago. Since then he has continued treatment, RX, and therapy. Today is a good day!! We filed for P&T in January. Today we got the decision and it is 100% P&T!!!! WOW!!! Competency is not in question!!! I am so excited that I wanted to share this wonderful news. DAV sent an application for CHAMPVA and VA sent a pamphlet for education info!!! Very suprised at the rating after reading the QTC report!!! Dr. reported everything was normal and appropriate!!! No eye contact made by patient GAF of 46. But we have alot of reports from DR's over the last 6 years that VA decided that even though the QTC exam did not support 100 p&T the other evidence (including ssdi disability for ptsd only) that more weight was given for the 100 P&T rating!!! All I can say is A BIG SIGH! WHOO!

That is GREAT!

It appears that the VA actually considered the overwhelming evidence FOR, instead of latching onto the ONE dubious piece of evidence against..........congratulations to the VA.........maybe they are beginning to grow up and act like responsible adults.

No eye contact and a GAF of 46 is significant. I am very pleased with your win.

i can feel your relief in your post. this is great news for you and your family. PTSD is enough to deal with, without worrying how you are going to get by financially. so glad hadit.com could be of help, the members here are really great, without them, well there would be no hadit.com to speak of, just me talking to myself :)

make sure to check out your state benefits often there is a real estate or rent tax credit for 100% permanent and total disabled veterans, some states have great benefits, others just a few, but do check it out, it's worth the time. check here http://www.hadit.com/forums/index.php?/forum/64-veterans-benefits-state-federal/ and make sure you take care of yourself, being a spouse/partner of a PTSD sufferer can be stressful. Keep encouraging him and get stress relief when you need it, thank you taking care of your veteran.

stick around if you can and lend a hand, research for veterans here or just lend a supportive comment. but most important take care of you and yours first and always.

Thanks to everyone!!! AND YES IT IS A BIG SIGH OF RELIEF!!! Now I just need to try and get hubby to understand that this is a good thing. I am still baffled at VA' s decision!!! I thougt for sure we would have to file a NOD for this but I guess good things can happen to good people!!! My husband now calls me the BULLDOG!! HA HA I think its kinda funny!! But dang it I am sick and tired of reading and hearing these horrible stories about how vets are treated!!! I don't think anyone would ever wish to have the problems and hurddles they have now caused by the VA! REALLY< let's get a grip and do the right thing VA!!! One thing that had helped is I have saved every piece of paper ever written by military pre discharge to every paper post military!! I am not saying that everthing is peachy keen now but I will say that this hurddle is over for now!!! We will jump the next one when we get to it. With my husband being so young I am sure there will be another exam around the corner somewhere but for now we will JUST BREATHE FOR A CHANGE (or at least I will try), he is still on pins and needles!!! I will do what ever is necessary to help him and my family to not be ran over by the VA. I want us to be able to enjoy our girls and help them as well!! THANK YOU FOR THiS SITE AND THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO VENT AND ASK QUESTION THAT WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FIND ANYWHERE ELSE!!! THANKS HADIT!!

      If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.

    • 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.
