  1. DAV rep put in claim for hearing increase and 100% temporary hospitalization? Not sure why he did it that way but the claim status on eBennies says it's closed. Under disabilities they increase hearing loss from 0% to 30%, brown envelope is on it's way. I was previously 90% scheduler and 100% TPIU. Now scheduler is 94% with the addition increase of 30% but of course that rounds down to 90% scheduler. I am not sure why but it appears on eBennies they dropped my TPIU (unemployable)???? OMG please tell me that is not so, that's about $1,000 less in benefits, spouse loses her health coverage (Champus)... I'm scare to open the envelope when it arrives. What about scars? I had a CABG with left me with a approximately 9” scar down the middle of my chest where they cracked me open (I jokingly call that my zipper). Is that rateable?  This stress is killing me!!!! My wife is under going treatments for breast cancer, NOT a good time to lose her health coverage.

      X020574 I would wait to see your BBE; should be quick. You need to see what it says. If they took away TDIU, you need to see why, and you need to appeal it. Post what the decision letter says here when you get it; be sure not to have your personal ID stuff on it, like name, ssn, address, etc.It's not a done deal yet. Yes the scar is rateable, probably, as it is long enough but other considerations are how wide, is is sensitive, deep, how wide, does it effect movement, unstable, etc. See diagnostic code 7801 thru 7805 for more info. Run the rate calculator and plug in each of your individual ratings, plus, based on what your scar symptoms are, plug in your estimate on what your scar might be, say 10%. That might get you to 95%, which rounds up to 100% schedular. If it does, that is an additional option for you. Post the letter.
