Veteran & SSN

NOTICE OF DISSAGREMENT

I totally disagree with the Regional Office Decision dated April 13, 2010 and I intend to dispute the decision with a DRO Review and then appeal it all the way to Washington with an attorney if I’m not happy with the DRO results.

The issues are as follows:

Issue #1 I totally disagree with the C/P examine due to the fact she stated she was new and not to sure of what she was doing and to please bear with her. She did not use a measuring device through the complete exam, she eyeballed allot of it. She forced my head and measurements to get readings she wanted causing extreme pain and the C/P report that I obtained are not the answers I had given her. No repeat motions of any kind were asked of me during the entire exam nor did she ask me to walk.

Issue #2. I also dispute the fact that there is nothing granted for my Thoracic region of my spine, maybe that’s a separate claim I need to make? (Please inform me).

Issue #3. My Dr. that performed my Cervical Surgery indicated I stay on Temporary Total Disability for a further two months during my follow-up visit September 4, 2008 in which my total disability pay is not accurate and I expect to be compensated for. It should go until November 4, 2008.

Issue #4. I am providing more medical records, doctors reports, ROM, bubby letters from my sister and a customer from work and detailed information on my conditions and a Statement Of Facts from me in which if I’m not happy the DRO’s decision I intend to take the Statement Of Facts letter to Tri-State Polygraph Associate Inc in Cincinnati, OH to authenticate my facts before appealing with an attorney.

Issue #5. I am also providing X-Ray photo of my Cervical Fusion and I expect the highest rating for that alone in which I have barely any movement at all because of it.

Issue #6. I further expect the max rating for my Lumbar Thoracic after reviewing all my evidence, there are people who are getting 50% and only have DDD and I have an enormous amount of problems.

Further if a DRO can not see for him or her self I warrant max ratings I expect nothing less that a new C/P exam at a different location with a different doctor and a different rater so there is an unbiased evaluation and decisions.

Mr. Veteran & Date

any advice would be greatful

Well, I'll tell you this:

You aren't getting anywhere with that letter. Why, you spend more than HALF the letter threatening someone. If I got one like that, it'd go DIRECTLY to the circular file.

just sayin'.................

Your request should be for a NOD based on an inadaquate exam. Request a re-examination based on the fact that the doctor manipulated your range of motion and that is not allowed.

How's This??

NOTICE OF DISSAGREMENT

I totally disagree with the Regional Office Ratings dated April 13, 2010 due to the fact that the C/P Examiner did not follow protocol. I intend to dispute the decisions and ratings with a DRO Review first because of the following issues. I am asking that a DRO review my issues and reevaluate my issues and ratings and provide me a new C/P exam if needed.

The issues are as follows:

Issue #1 I totally disagree with the C/P examine due to the fact the doctor stated she was new and not to sure of what she was doing and to please be patient with her. She did not use a measuring device through the complete exam, she eyeballed allot of it. She forced my head to get measurements she wanted causing extreme pain and the C/P report that I obtained are not the answers I had given her. No repeat motions of any kind were asked of me during the entire exam nor did she ask me to walk.

Issue #2. I also dispute the fact that there is nothing granted for my Thoracic region of my spine, maybe that’s a separate claim I need to make? (Please inform me).

Issue #3. My Dr. that performed my Cervical Surgery indicated I stay on Temporary Total Disability for a further two months during my follow-up visit September 4, 2008 in which my total disability pay is not accurate it should be until November 4, 2008 and I ask for that to be corrected.

Issue #4. I am providing more medical records, doctors reports, ROM from a recent chiropractor and a Statement Of Facts letter from me. I will at anytime if requested of me I will take my Statement Of Facts letter and have it authenticated at Tri-State Polygraph Associate Inc in Cincinnati, OH. I can provide buddy letters from family, friends and even customers from my past.

Issue #5. I am also providing X-Ray photo of my Cervical Fusion and I believe I should have highest rating for that alone in which I have barely any movement at all because of it. According to the accurate ROM I am providing and the General Rating Formula for Diseases and Injuries of the Spine I warrant a 50% for my cervical.

Issue #6. I further believe I should have the max rating for my Lumbar Thoracic after reviewing all my evidence, there are people who are getting 50% and only have DDD and I have an enormous amount of problems and suffer tremendously. I believe with all the problems with my Lumbar Thoracic problems combined and recent accurate ROM I warrant 50% .

Further: I have no problem with a DRO requesting a new C/P exam however I only ask that it be at a different facility and different doctor to obtain an unbiased examination. I only ask to be treated, examined and rated fairly; I did not ask for all the problems that I have.<br style=""> <br style="">

      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.
