  1. OOPS, BEHIND THE TIMES. RAMP IS THE NEW VA PROCESS TO APPEAL, SO NO LONGER CAN USE THE OLD FORMAT. NEW RAMP IS NOT USER FRIENDLY. LOTS OF MINEFIELDS. READ WHAT ASKNOD AND OTHERS HAVE WRITTEN ON IT. please disregard my sample NOD as it is obsolete. Vern2
  2. I have not filed a NOD in over 10 years, so if we do not use the 21-0958, what form or format do we use to filed a NOD after we get the denial letter? Vern2
  3. Behind the times. Was not aware of the AMA took effect on 19 February 2019. PLEASE DISREGARD MY POST. GO TO ASKNOD for latest on AMA, and how to appeal. I have created a sample NOD to use in your response to the VA denial of benefits letter. Please ensure that you use the correct VA form, 21-0958 dated Sept 2018, or later. It would be helpful if some of the senior moderators would review my post and comment on it. Vern2 sample NOD2 statement to put on the VA 21-0958.docx
  4. yes, but I do not have asthma. Seems like QTC is seeking ways to deny my Gulf War breathing issues.
  5. have had 2 prior PFT, no albuterol, but those were done by VA, now the contractor insisted on doing albuterol. made me sick and dizzy on drive home. the only reason I can find is if they are checking to see if you have asthma. I do not have asthma, exposed to oil field fires, much fine dust and had had breathing issues since then.
  6. Is it right for a QTC examiner to require you to use albuterol (rescue inhaler) as part of your PFT test? Have had 2 prior tests by VA, never used albuterol. Seems strange, was told by QTC, that if refused, would put me down as refusing the test?
  7. My friend Just had many Exams in December, including Audiology, General Gulf War exam and knee and shoulder and foot exam. This was done by VA C & P. The problem is that repeatedly the examiner seemed to be confused as to his status, Reserve or AD or whatever. He is AD and has been throughout his career. Anyway, he called the VARO and now he has to go to QTC and repeat all the exams that he just did less than 60 days ago. And he has to travel at his expense over 85 miles one way to the exam location. Seems wrong. He is staing that as an AD person he can not file for travel pay. I am not sure if that is correct, but he is angry that has to repeat all the exams over again, with many, many x-rays as well. Any thoughts on this process? He is enrolled in the BDD claim process. He has already discovered that he can not get record of his hearing since last one done by sub-contractor to QTC. BTW, now they want to examine both shoulders and both knees, even though he was not claiming both shoulders and knees. vern2
  8. Suggest you change you posts from script to times new Roman, as very hard to read your posts.
  9. No, not yet. Will call in near future to get the details. Will post when I get the details.
  10. Has anyone used him for an IME/IMO. found his name through a directory on Haddit. My ortho C % P exams did not go very well. The first one was by a PA , the 2nd one was by a QTC nurse, with no ortho experience. Vern2
  11. I live near a VARO, can I not walk in and go to the Release Of Information Office and request this, rather than file a FOIA request? Vern2
  12. What is supposed to happen when you sign up for the BDD program? I have already had all my C & P exams, yet no pre-separation exam by either the military or the VA? ( ASKING FOR FRIEND) Vern2
  13. I expected a response from Houston VARO, the office that has my claim, but got one from San Antonio. Seemed kind of odd?
  14. Yes, but expected it to be from Houston VARO?
  15. They do not have to give you new C & P, if they have enough medical evidence to make a decision-which is rare. Submit your question via IRIS and see what response the VARO has to say.
