  2. Buck, what’s your status now? Are you scheduled for an exam? Have they given you any idea of a time frame to determine your status?
  3. Hi all, thanks for the great informative responses. Went to my local VAMC and asked them what should I do . They told me to contact the billing departments of the medical facilities that treated me and request medical records/medical bills.. They said I have 90 days from discharge to get this done. I was in two different hospitals and when I brought up VA medical care it seemed to be a complicated path to get treated so I opted to not claim the VA as part of my coverage. In one case it was to see if the VA would pay for me to have a home nurse administer an IV antibiotic that I need
  4. Hi all, Im 100% P & T. What benefit if any do I get when I incur outside VA medical bills. Does the VA pick up any of the cost. I have outside Insurance and Medicare. I also have a $1000 deductible. I’ve heard the VA will pick up emergency room visits cost . Anyone have experience with this. Thanks
  5. Thanks Bronco, I figured as much but wanted to hear it from the voice of experience. Can you explain the 5 year rule? Is there an age at which the VA exempts you from further exams? I understand that even thou you have no further exams scheduled that there is still the possibility of further C&P exams.
  6. What does the VA give you to show that you are permanent and total.The BBE didn't have anything directly stating that. My Commissary letter on Ebenefits states "This total disability is considered permanent. You are not scheduled for future examinations." Does that statement mean P&T ? Is there any other documents that would reflect P&T. Seems like there would be more documentation to indicate TDIU P&T. Thanks EDIT. Looking at my summary of benefits letter it states " You are considered to be totally and permanently disabled due solely to your service-connected dis
  7. Success because of Hadit and its members. I would like to say Thank You to all that post their stories and to those that share their knowledge on Hadit. I received notice of my award benefit for TDIU P&T at the end of June 2017. Received deposit into our account last night. E Benefits confirms TDIU P&T. Still waiting for the BBE. I started this journey in Jan, 2015. By May, 2015 I had received notice of award at 70%. Shortly after I received notice of award on a pending issue and award went up to 80%. May 2016 filed NOD. May 2017 received award to 90% and also my SOC. Reques
  8. Allan did you get an increase for PTSD and what about IU ?
  9. OEF 21B ,when you had your sleep Doctor write the DBQ and Nexus letter did he have your C File or any other medical records? Would you be willing to share a redacted copy of your Nexus letter and DBQ either on this forum or perhaps E Mail? I read somewhere that your Dr. is supposed to have your C File in order to make an opinion that the VA will recognize.

  11. http://www.sleeptember.org/ Check this link out to this Sleep Apnea group. Please share with other Veteran sites. Lots of useful information .
  12. OEF 21 B, Congratulations on the good news. I too had a sleep study ordered by my psyc whom was treating me for PTSD . The sleep study came back as ( mild OSA ) sleep apnea. The VA asked if I would like a C Pap machine and I said yes. So I have been on the machine about 4 months. In talking to my Psych about this he was in agreement that the PTSD was related to my sleep apnea. Now I'm trying to make my case and I'm seeking help in putting this together . 1) Did you approach your Psych about writing a nexus regarding your sleep apnea? 2) Does the type of sleep apnea you have make a
