  1. RDT

    Have had metal in my left shoulder from Vietnam that just started causing me pain 24/7. I had a c&p and was told that pain in not a disability and they gave a 0 rating.

    Any thoughts.?

    Blessing RAY

  2. Still no answer from all the parties I contacted. Return recipients shows the claim was received. Mare Island was the last location that the claim was mailed to. Where do I go from here when no one from the VA will respond.? DAV said I will not hear on the claim for a year and placed the claim in a file.

I googled Mare Island, fee base, reimbursement etc etc and could not determine if this is a VA health care facility with a non VA med care office. Quote Options GRADUATE !

When thousands of Americans faced annihilation in the 1800s Chief Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we." Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
  3. Hi Berta. Thank You for the information. They have told me to mail the claim to over three location. Not sure at this point as it is a different location each time I call I will try again after the first of the year. Merry Christmas and may God bless you in all your day. Sincerely Ray
  4. Merry Christmas I received a notice from VA the my IHD/ Agent Orange was tied by to my open heart surgery in 1998 (I was 49 years old) I had Blue Cross Insurance that paid most of the bills. I still had out of pocket over $30,000 that I sent to Mare Island CA.fee base claim processing. I sent all the billing I could located, but not able to get the copies of payments as the banks don’t have the records back 20 years. The claim and documents were sent certified two months ago. I have not received any communication from the VA and was wondering if this in normal. I contacted the DAV and they said it could take a year to hear back. Any suggestions or help on claim appreciated Sincerely RDT
