  1. Thanks. You're the first to suggest this and I will take this into heavy account. Everything from youtube videos to forum discussion suggests fight the claim even at 100% but it seems like it is case specific. In this case, I really don't have anything to gain....
  2. Very good points thank you all. To better understand the picture: -I am satisfied with 100% P&T -I do not qualify for SMC and even if I did I rather not wake up the giant to get this as I am good with P&T compensation -The claims that were denied I will not die from. One of the big ones I thought would be service connected was GERD So if I am satisfied with 100% P&T and will not get paid anymore even if I fought the extra denied claims - is there any reason from knowing this that yall would still recommend fighting the denied claims?
  3. I have received 100% P&T. However some very black and white conditions were denied completely. Should I still appeal the denied claims even though I am 100% P&T? (it has been over 1 year since my claims were denied). I have 2 fears: 1. VA will eventually one day reduce my 100% P&T randomly and I will regret NOT filing an appeal 2. I file an appeal for the denied claims and then the VA digs deeper into my 100% and 'changes' their mind and then reduces me. Basically I don't want to wake up the sleeping giant and would rather fly under the radar
  4. Thank input everyone. Has anyone the following: Receive VA disability for mental health with no VA treatment, and has never been called for a re eval by the VA?
  5. Oh I'm surprised us soldiers are the ones that request followups and not the VA.. If I am happy with the 50% rating for depression and don't want any followups, I just simply do not request a followup?
  6. Thank you Do they require documents from our civilian psychiatrist? Do they contact you randomly and then request a followup, and who gets to pick if it is telehealth or in person?
  7. The VA granted me depression at 50%... I am not really sure how since I was expecting at most 30%. My question is does the VA do followups for mental health conditions to decrease, keep same, or increase ratings?
  8. If I keep getting denied after submitting new Supplemental claims, and then finally it becomes granted months later - does the retroactive pay to back to the date of the appeal, date of their decision rating, or date of ITF? Once submitting HLR and after it has been reviewed completed, can I appeal again for the same condition with Supplemental?
  9. 2 questions if anyone knows: How many supplemental claims can we make when making our appeal for the same condition? So if VA denies condition, can we just submit new evidence from doctors seen every time over and over? When making an appeal is it for the entire claim (conditions a-z) or just each individual condition? This is because some conditions I want to submit HLR and some conditions I want to submit Supplemental claim.
  10. Is limited range of motion where knee can only straighten to 45 degrees really 50%? And rated separately? My VA claim for my knee pain was DENIED and I my knees legit clocks/pops hard at 45' and can not extend more than 45'. I always thought that was normal and did not mention it during CP exam however the physician assistant did measure it with the ruler device...
  11. They haven’t given a reason yet. I just see it ebenefits but haven’t gotten my letter yet
  12. I submitted for joint conditions such as: knee pain, ankle pain, lower back pain. However they were all denied but I was seen multiple times IN the army for these. My range of motion is normal however I have pain upon motion for all of them. Isn't pain upon motion regardless if it is mild granted 10%?
  13. Is it possible to have the 30% rating for flat feet decreased due to this C/P examiners notes on plantar fascitis even if the C/P exam isn't for flat feet?
  14. I have an upcoming C/P exam for 4 conditions which includes plantar fascitis. However the VA has already granted me 30% for flat feet (my claim has not been fully decided yet but they just gave me that 30% rating even though claim is still incomplete). I want to DENY being seen for plantar fascitis, while being seen for the other 4 conditions of my C/P exam. Is this possible? I am very paranoid that if the new examiner may indicate something about my flat feet (saying it is mild) and then the VA decreases my 30%.
