    100% PTSD Housebound question

    Thank you for that because I am only receiving the extra 102.00 per month. My award specifically states entitlement to special monthly compensation based on housebound and loss of use of a creative organ. The next line says entitlement to special monthly compensation is warranted in this case because criteria regarding housebound have been met. I apologize but I guess I'm just confused about what I'm supposed to be receiving. I have a spouse and one child thank you for your help
  3. Hello everyone, I was awarded 100% for PTSD and also SMC K and also housebound. I searched previous threads and didn't understand what they mean by housebound. I understand the SMC K. I know the housebound is because of the 100% PTSD, I just don't understand what they mean by housebound as far as if there is any additional benefits or restrictions. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    They do. They enter notes and it goes to your psych Dr, you could also stay unanimous. You have to give them your info. The C line has helped a lot. I only had one bad experience.

    PTSD rating question

    If you're retired and left the federal service what did you do about health insurance how are you able to keep the Blue Cross and Blue Shield? is that a part of the Federal retirement? I am totally and completely lost man as I have no idea how I'm going to be able to get my family health insurance my wife is going to try to find a job. How long do I have until I have to quit is there a timeline . I mean I barely make it through the day and I have had multiple issues so I'm definitely not complaining but I'm just trying to figure things out. When you say you haven't received your final decision do you mean the actual paperwork in the mail or what. Thanks for the help brother I appreciate it I'm just kind of confused as I'm sure you can tell. I didn't apply for IU, I applied for an increase as I was at 50% for PTSD

    PTSD rating question

    Hello everyone, Thank you for all of your help and advice. I went on ebennies and saw that I was awarded 100% for PTSD. I am currently working for the Federal Government and I owe them 200 hours of FMLA, which is advanced sick leave that I did not have and they basically the let me borrow. Does anyone know what the time line is for me to leave my job. I looked at a letter and I was not awarded P&T. I did not see any other information. Does anyone have any experience on how I would pay back my FMLA without working, I earn 4 hours of sick leave every 2 weeks. Any recommendations on any good insurances besides Obamacare for my family as my wife is not working, yet. Thank you for your help
  11. Sorry to hear about your situation SLY. I hope things work out in your favor because that is terrible that they didn't inform you right away that you were being med boarded out. Are you currently working ?

    Hi Berta, No worries at all. I understand exactly what your are saying as it is unfortunately true at times. I hope you know how much we appreciate you on this board and how much it means to all of us your sacrifice trying to help us navigate our way through the quagmire that is the claim process. I was a member back in 2007- 2011 under a diffrent name. I then started working oversees and recently came back to the board. I always appreciated your posts and valuable insight. Thank for you and your husbands service to our country and its veterans. Thank you, Have a good day.

    PTSD rating question

    Hello Berta, Thank you for responding. I worked at this VA for 3 years and the VA program itself is great. The Doctors, Suicide prevention coordinators, Social workers have been superb, and have treated me as if I was family.I have been receiving treatment for my PTSD from the same Doctors for 7 years. The problem is what was going on with some of the patients in the program. There was a lot of fights, thefts, and patients were buying and selling drugs. The position I had at this particular VA I saw all of this first hand. I never said the program was bad but the environment at this particular VA is bad. My psychiatrist, Pschcologst, and the suicide prevention coordinator all reccommend that I go to a VA that is further north in the state as they agre its not the best environment for me. Which is what I plan on doing. Believe me without the VA and their intervention I would be dead. I am already service connected for PTSD and have been for years. It interesting that you mention a program lasting a year. It was reccommend to me that I attend a program that is funded by the VA that deals strictly with PTSD and TBI. I suffered 2 TBI's so I would qualify for the program. I am hoping I can get into that one. Thanks again for you response.

    PTSD rating question

    Thank you for the advice you are spot man. I need to do the same and I know it. It's getting to the point where I am worried about getting locked up or dead. I have a real issue with entering a program as I have extremely poor skills being around people, I am not an xxxxxxx or anything. It's just that I am extremely uncomfortable with people being close to me and I know how the PTSD inpatient program is at the VA where I live, it's a bad environment. I can barley sleep at home, no way I can sleep somewhere else especially the VA. I take some pretty strong sleep meds and can't even sleep in a hotel by myself. Thank for your advice
