  1. I would say lets start here, what conditions are you looking to service connected and how (direct secondary etc). If you give us more info we may be able to point you in the right direction.
  2. Does the pain your back cause mental anguish? If it does you could be looking at a secondary claim (if your not already service connected for mental health).
  3. Since this is in your records, I would go forward with a claims package that includes a detailed personal statement, buddy letters, and I would include some medical journals off https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ that related to your case.
  4. True but for appeals you had to fax them in. This gets rid of the need to fax anything at this point.
  5. Team, Direct VA upload is now open to the Veteran, where in the past this was just for the VSO's or lawyers. What this means is that you do not have to mail or fax info to the VA anymore, you can directly upload your information here: Direct Va upload https://eauth.va.gov/accessva/?fbclid=IwAR3ZOyaPuzPzeUGWx7RcTRfFS1AQtZYgOIbthX4pfbo1PRi3UC7tbSLlBNE I just used this system to submit my supplemental appeal this morning! It was easy to use and sent a confirmation number!
  6. This is a good thing! This means that most likely they are going to do another C&P exam to get another option or they will rate on what they have have on file. Typically I've seen these go in favor of the Veteran.
  7. I see nothing but good coming out this for the Veteran. How can a C&P examiner that works for the VA remain impartial if they work for the VA? That in itself has inherent ethical issues.
  8. I would agree! Supplemental claims in my experience are going just as fast as a FDC right now!
  9. Buck the fact that this guy is still a VSO is a shame. You are 100% correct.
  10. I'm torn on this one to be honest. Con: Really hard to get your results in a timely manner compared with a VA C&P exam that is uploaded to myhealthyvet Pro: I feel like VA C&P examiners are jaded by the process because they have been doing it for years and that's all they do. Plus it seems like at times they're "Protecting" the VA's money. A contracted doctor is just on a contract to do a job and bail, they have no vested interest.
  11. How does everyone track the changes that are made to 38 CFR Book C, Schedule for Rating Disabilities and M21-1? Just Wondering.
  12. My believe is that there is an underestimation of what this can do to future claims. This is really setting up a lot of claims to fail (if this goes through).
