    SMC-S and -K

    Thanks broncovet. Sorry for asking the question, I looked it up and just got more confused the more I read. Thanks again.

    SMC-S and -K

    Thanks Buck. I don’t yet have a diagnosis of E.D., but after hoping things would get better for 2 years, I’ve decided to pursue it. I just had an appointment with my MH doc and he mentioned that the blood pressure meds could be doing it. I have an appointment with my primary care doc at the VA in a few weeks and I’ll make sure to discuss it then. Any idea on the SMC-S? If I’m understanding what I’ve been reading, then I don’t qualify because I do not have a single item rated at 100%, nor am I TDIU. I am 100% P&T though. Thanks for the help!

    SMC-S and -K

    Hi everyone. I have a question about SMC S and K. I am 100% P&T. Am I entitled to SMC-S? I have the following ratings: major depressive disorder recurrent 70% obstructive sleep apnea 50% benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) 40% scar anterior neck status post tracheostomy 30% sciatica, right lower extremity 40% sciatica, left lower extremity 20% deviated septum status septoplasty and bilateral turbinate reduction 10% (replaced by next line?) allergic rhinitis with deviated septum status septoplasty and bilateral turbinate reduction (previously rated under DC6502) 10% sinusitis 10% (secondary to above) gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) 10% right medial epicondylitis 10% scar, left thumb s/p laceration. 0% hypertension 0% Also, how does SMC-K work for loss of creative organ? I am not rated for it, but I do mention it with my VA mental health doc from time to time? Thanks everyone.
  4. Hi everyone. I just want to make sure I'm not asking something that is a no-no. I just don't want to leave that housing allowance money "sitting on the table." Thanks.
  5. Hey everybody. I apologize in advance if this is not in the right section. I have about 18 months (give or take) of Post 9/11 GI Bill left. I am not eligible to transfer it to my dependents (they are getting Chapter 35 anyway.) I work PT and am 100% P&T. I have no interest in pursuing another degree to further my career because, God willing, I have no intention of working FT again. I'd like to use up the rest of that GI Bill and get that monthly housing allowance by taking some courses of interest. Otherwise, this benefit will go away and I will have wasted that income. Any suggestions on classes or certifications or whatever that would allow me to collect that housing allowance without adding a heavy load of school work? Thank you all.

    MDD

    I am rated at 70% for MDD, permanent. Sounds like the DAV guy was full of crap.
  7. I clicked the button for one or two of my claims. Didn't seem to make a bit of difference.

    Finished all my C&P Exams.

    In my experience, you won't see the QTC exam info in MyHealtheVet. At least, I never saw mine there, and it was in Spring of 2015. I also clicked that button, but my made no difference in getting results. Emailing Sec. McDonald and UnderSec Hickey at the 15 month point is what generated movement on mine. I agree with Gastone. Read a book, find a hobby, just put your mind elsewhere, because the claims process can drive you nuts.
  9. I have used secure messaging to let my doc know when I have problems with meds. He usually calls me and we make a change without me having to wait for an appointment. That is usually with my psych doc, but I have also gotten prescriptions refilled through my PCP through secure messaging.
  10. So, what can obesity be rated as percentage wise? This OSA/obesity lines up very well with my experience.
  11. So, I went and looked into this a little more, and the VA website and form say that you have to be P&T and IU. I am 100% P&T, but not IU. Am I seeing this information wrong or is there something else I don't know? Thanks.
  12. Tbird, I think these changes look great. Things are easy to read and easy to find, which will be helpful to everyone looking for information.

    CHAMPVA

    Awesome, so it sounds like CHAMPVA is just as convenient and helpful as my general doctor at the local VA. ***insert tons of sarcasm here***

    100% P&T!

    Hi Gastone. I actually don't know if they rated me IU. Is the only way to know that to wait on the BBE? Thanks.
