  2. This show has been postponed. We will air the Asbestos special instead, Sorry for the change. Basser
  3. To be considered for an increase: Hypertensive vascular disease (hypertension and isolated systolic hypertension): Diastolic pressure predominantly 130 or more......................................................... 60 Diastolic pressure predominantly 120 or more......................................................... 40 You have to go after Kidney disease. Remember regardless of what the RO says, HTN always effects the kidneys either directly or indirectly. Also known as aggravation. J

  6. Get your Doc to fill this out. Rationale will be needed to connect current issues with service. Arthritis is a good point as it will help form a time line. https://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-0960M-14-ARE.pdf Then have the Doc attach an opinion. You may need a stronger advocate than the DAV. I suggest an accredited agent when the VA denies your request to re open. J
  7. The defense bill has Space A included and Hagel made it disappear. How do we like that move. The Air Force does not want disabled vets flying space a.
  8. VA doctors do not like it when the VBA adds to their workload by shoving forms at them without getting their input. That is why the docs refuse to do the DBQ.
  9. I suggest filing a NOD or Notice of Disagreement and obtaining an outside IME. Now you can bring a Claims Agent or Attorney on board to help you. J
  10. You need a change in representation ASAP. You need an accredited person to work your appeal.
  11. That will be a good point and topic. Can't wait for the show.
  12. TDIU SMC-S eligible?

    Ask for 100 percent convalesence rating because of surgery. Then battle for SMC S. Are you IU p and t?
  13. The amazing Berta Simmons will be joining us for this show. We will be discussing the just signed VA Accountability act and other important issues effecting veterans today. Berta has been the heart and soul of Hadit.com for many many years. She is the most knowledgeable person I have ever met when it comes to the VA and I have been doing this stuff for a very long time. So pull up a chair and tune in for this one. If you want to call in and speak to Berta, the number is 347 237 4819. To listen: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/haditcom/2017/06/29/hadit-podcast-special-show-with-guest-berta-simmons
  14. Joe if they fail to secondary the HTN,you should ask the VA in the form of a NOD to state that the HTN if not secondary be rated as an aggravation to your service connected heart disease. Since it likely will be rated zero % unless your Systolic (top) number is 160 or Diastolic number (bottom) is predominately 100. Any cardiologist will write an opinion for that. J
  15. Cue is based on a leagal error. Evidence weight or typos will not work. You must find something within the regs that they violated or mis rated. J
