  1. Yeah, mine did that, too. The important thing is that she doesn't even have to have the records in her possession. When we pull her OMPF and STRs it will be in there, along with any counseling actions, etc. as a result of it. I was medboarded during Basic for a sort of similar situation (obstacle failed during our final FTX, and I fell 8 feet to the ground while carrying a SINGCARS. Landed in a seated L position, fractured two vertebrae, ruptured 1 disc, severely bulged another). I completed the iteration, the next day, and the road march back to Company. It wasn't until a month later after I

  2. pacmanx 1 You take things out of text somewhat WE'RE ALL TRYING TO HELP HERE GB Army and me and you. I was only letting ''shrekthetank1'' know what to do to get his Dental started up or how to get into the Dental Clinic I can only imagine Shrek has enough sense as to how to handle covid . And I know Shrek has enough sense to go to the E.R. if he needs to. And to call his VA First I would think he knows to do all of that. during this covid or not. Most VAMC We Veterans need authorization to even go there (During this pandemic) and when you do they usually

  3. Brokensoldier is spot on. This 180 days stuff scares away a lot of veterans. It just isn't true. She just has to prove out s-c, like everyone else. If she was md boarded out or discharged for the injury, it would be slam dunk. I got a friend get benefits (50%) for a disability that happened 50 years prior in basic. The problem is many people, including VSO's just repeat this 180 day thing without understanding the rule. If it happens in-service, you are service connected.

  4. Buck, due to COVID-19, I would not suggest to a veteran to just show up at any hospital and or clinic unless it is an emergency. The hospital and or clinics are scheduling appointments to keep everyone safe by not having too many people in one place at a time. Shrek just got his award letter so there is no not knowing if he would have problems with these clinics. Now due to COVID-19 there may be issues of how and where to get him in or where to send him, but it is way too early for him to contact the hospital director or assistant.

  5. Also Shrek be sure to check what all your P&T Bennies are education allowance for spouse and you can take your award letter to your County Tax Vehicle Registration Office for your car /truck tags...my charges me 3 .00 for paper work not bad because they cost about 80.00 bucks. Property tax is a biggie if you own your home, see your tax Appraisal Office . And be sure to fill out the forms for ChampVA and your free 10.000 life Insurance .

  6. When I got P&T I took the award letter that showed I was P&T To the Dental Clerks at my VAMC. if that don't work or they give you a hard time then see the Hospital Director or his/her Assistant. You can write a little note to the Hospital Director in those little suggestion boxes place around the Hospital tell him if the dental clinic is giving you a hard time about whatever and put your email in the note he/she will email you back. They do at my VAMC ANYWAYZ I have two complaints with them (VA Dental Clinic, they scheduled the appointments like 5 to 6 months

  7. Shrek prior to COVID-19, once a veteran was granted 100% P & T. All s/he would have to do is to contact the VAMC Eye-Clinic or the VAMC Dental Clinic and after they confirm the veteran's rating, they would schedule the veteran for treatment. Now, I am sure you still have to contact the VAMC but they will either schedule you an appointment to come in or refer you to fee basis which will try to set you up for an appointment with a local specialist. The local VARO has nothing to do with these types of appointments. Yes, if fee basis refers you to an outside specialist there is no cost to the

  8. Any service connected disability is covered by VA health Care, with NSC stuff covered with Co pays and priority levels until 50% rated, then NSC stuff is covered full as well. An injury in training qualified for benefits when if 180 isn't hit but she'll have to show off have proof that it happened as a direct result of service. SO, LOD, Sick call, in patient, outpatient records, stuff like that. Was she discharged because of it? If so then that's already done. So she'll have too get it SC too qualify for medical care butt if she med boarded because of this then that will be ready. Her TAP or m

  9. The VA would have egg all over their face if they toss out your nexus "based solely" on the fact your medical professional was not an MD because: 1. The VA uses NP's all the time for c and p exams. 2. If they use them, how can they tell us our NP or otherwise, is no good? You need only show "medical competence" not an MD. This person (IMO DOC) is acting as an "expert witness". My audiologists opinion (she is not a doctor) was sufficient to get me hearing loss. You dont need a MD, but you do need an "expert witness" on the subject. Many medical professionals

  10. Wow, I was in ILP and it should be unique to each individual and their disabilities. They should also be coming to your home (didn't happen in mine either) but I fought like the dickens to get most of the things I needed to make my quality of life better. I did have to get a letter for every single item I requested from one of my providers and how it would help me, ridiculous but it didn't have to be my VA providers necessarily and I finally had an outside provider just sign off on things because my VA primary care doctor wouldn't even sign that I wasn't employable, she said that is obvi
