  1. My claim back in 2014 it was found that my tongue scar was 7822-7800 rated at 10% due to the Characteristic of Disfigurement width measurement. My 2015 reconsideration claim to add a separate code of 7804 for the account that it is also painful was successful, but, they removed the 7800 code for head, face, or neck. The changed it to 7822-7802 so it's still 10% lol....those bastards. So my question is, does it still count as head, face, or neck 7800? It's my understanding that every conflict should be resolved in favor of the higher rating. I mean...it would be a CUE to not see that
  2. Often claims will go to prep for decision right before a c&P is requested, check ebenefis if there has been an exam request.
  3. I'm on my fourth c&p exam for the same condition. The first was done on my original claim a year ago, it was done great, but the doctor gave a different diagnosis because she didn't look at my records. I submitted for an increase a month or so later, and was given another C&P with VES...that visit went well. Two months later the VA requests yet another opinion, but this time with a dentist via QTC, this exam took 3 months for the VA to get the results back (the dentist just copied the notes from my previous exams and didn't even look into my mouth because he said he agreed with the evi
  4. Sound like it went back to gathering evidence because you have a c&p coming up, that would be the request from the VA medical hospital.
  5. I just had the QTC apt today. The Dentist didn't even open my mouth, he never left his chair! He said "I'm not sure why you are even here, there is already a diagnosis, already a service connection, and you already had a c&p last month for this....I'm just going to copy those results and forward it back to the VA." Who knows what the VA is doing lol.
  6. I had a DAV VSO tell me that I wouldn't get an increase, but I did. They are not doctors...
  7. Hello! Just wanted to let you know that the same thing just happened to me today. My claim was in preparation for decision, and C&P's for all of my increases had been done by VES about two months ago, and they all went very well and the doctors left me feeling like I was getting my increases. Two days after being in preparation for decision, my claim moved back to gathering evidence and I received a call from who other then the VA's hired guns QTC! QTC said they received a request for a DBQ on one of my contentions that I just had a C&P for two months ago! After looking into who the QT
  8. Update: After my claim went back to gathering evidence, I noticed C&P's where scheduled. Must have been the higher ups decided C&P's where needed AGAIN lol. We'll I ended up having my exams a month ago with VES, and Ebennies still says gathering evidence with the request for C&P's as past due (9-27-15). Just yesterday the dates changed again, to "At this time, your Regional Office is unable to provide an estimated completion date for this type of claim," oh great...going on 9 months now for a re-opened FDC claim turned into normal claim. This is out of Winston Salem RO in case anyo
  9. I dont think that will work with VES since it's a 3rd party you have to do a freedom of information request??
  10. Update. Had a MH C&P today by VES, I was so nervous I didn't remember to say everything I needed to say. The examiner said that the last doctor who gave me a C&P last year "did a good job in documenting." I said that they did do a good job at documenting etiology, however I didn't think that they did a good job at documenting the level of disability and that was why I was here at my 2nd C&P for this because I cant work. So the doctor replied that it would be hard to prove increased disability, and that they didn't know exactly what the rating criteria was for a rating in excess of
  11. Thanx. I'll help him get his c-file and see what is says exactly then get him a VSO. I just wanted to be sure he could get post 911 GI Bill for now, to get out of this slump.
  12. I think its 20% VA. I think he said since he was still in MOS training, they played a dirty trick and tried to say he had pte-existing knee problems, told him to file with VA asap after getting home in order to rush process him out. I'll have to ask, thanx.
  13. Hello Hadit. A friend of mine from high school and fellow Marine, is going though some tough times, been drinking alot and throwing his life away. I am trying to get him back on track but his situation is very complicated and I cant seem to be able to get any straight answers, so I hope you vets can help! Here is the situation: He was discharged early do to an bad injury to his knees do to falling out of a helo training simulator, resulting in a Honorable Medial Discharge (20% VA rating). He told me he was only eligible for 16 months of MGIB, and has exhausted those funds over 5 years ago. I r
  14. "No job I could ever find would work around that schedule." Look up West At Home LLC & Sykes. All flexible work-at-home job opportunities. These company's were given to me by a VA social worker last year. In my case, I was terminated from one of these work-at-home jobs after being disciplined by the company in which they wrote out that I "was not able to commit to the hours that I chose to pick up do to medical reasons." I had been working with them for a few years and kept on getting in trouble, but was not fired until things got so bad that I couldn't work at all. Thank God I was able t
  15. I'm no expert but I have heard that it is harder for Educated professionals to get IU. Does he have proof that he can not work a sedentary job....was he fired from the school? How long has he been out of work? Any disciplinary action taken against him due to his service connected disabilities that you have on file? There is always work from home jobs to, it will be hard to prove he couldn't do such a job unless for instance he is having continuous panic attacks throughout the day, and/or is violent and rude to people, history of quitting jobs etc.
