  1. Berta "Probably 95-99% of us here have received denials, and we just kept fighting back. " Yes, I am so fiercely ready for this fight. "I think they would have to send you a copy of it now because the claim was denied." Do you have any ideas on who to contact to request this Peer Review. Should I call the Chief of the Spinal Cord Center at the VAMC of Memphis, ???? I would like to point out a few issues I have initially after going over the decision letter. Any guidance would be very appreciated. Under the evidence: 1. The Peer Review is not
  2. Berta, "t says they had VA medical records from March 18, 2018 to September 13, 2018 ,but he died on March 22,2018- " They listed " VA medical records, Memphis VA Medical Center, received March 25 2019 for the period of March 13, 2018 to September 13, 2018". This is not the accurate time of hospital admission nor what was submitted to them. The correct dates in which were submitted by me should be March 12 2018 to September 13, 2018. (The reason the medical records dated to Sept 13, 2018 (date of death March 22, 2018) is the VA providers continued to make late entries into
  3. Berta, I expected the denial. I am ready to fight. One of my first concerns about this is the evidence list. It contains only about 1/3 of the evidence I submitted. ???? Should I re submit everything I submitted that is not on the list.
  4. I have gotten my decision letter about an hour ago. Everything was denied. I am still trying to calm down and make it through the letter. I will upload it very soon.
  5. HamSlice, "When was he born, or how old was he, etc." He was born in 1956. He was 62 when he died March 22, 2018. I had to correct my initial post. My husband was in the United States Army for 13 years (entered in 1985 and honorably discharged 1998.) and in the Army Reserves for 12 years ( entered in 1998 and honorably discharged in 2010). My appoligies for my critical error on the initial post. With that being said, did my husband still have reserve retirement coming at age 60? "After twenty years reserve time, which could be more if there is a minimum requirem
  6. Berta, "I have a concern over the error they might have made in the pension denial You had stated: "My husband served in the United States Army for 18 years followed by 12 years in the Army Reserve. My husband was a skillful, highly sought General Surgeon, a life-saving Trauma Surgeon" That means he surely received a pension from the DOD, in addition to SSA, and if so, was that info included on the VA Pension form? All I could see on the letter regarding the pension was his SSA annual award. It my or may not include the Medicare amount." This is the first time tha
  7. Berta "LHI was contracted to give him a C & P exam. I ca hardly read it even when I magnify it- You got it recently, but but what is the date of that exam.? What I see here is that he applied for a Pension ( far different from a service connected claim) If he did not appeal this decision and point out their errors, the date of the decision tells me the only way to get this changed is to file a CUE claim. But I do not know if pension's involve accrued benefits-will try to find out- Was there anyone ( like DAV- VFW- AL ) mentioned as his POA on the pension den
  8. On Thursday I was informed by my new legal representation for the FTCA claim that not only would I be filing out the form 95 but that they would be contacting my husbands adult children (whom I have no contact with and my husband had very little contact with) to sign a retainers contract and sign Form 95. It is essential that the FTCA claim be correctly. I am not sure that this above is correct. I have spent the entire weekend searching for the statue, the code, the rule, the regulation as to whom must file the FTCA claim. Can anyone help me find this information?
  9. Berta, would you please give me your opinion on the attached additional letter in which I received recently on October 23, 2019. I have no idea what this is. I called the company. They informed me it was a review of medical records?????
  10. Berta, I believe you guided me to the right track. I now believe my husband did have an ongoing claim. I am not quite sure how the "catastrophically disabled". However I wanted to show you my new discoveries. I discovered two additional letters after sifting through four banker boxes. This time I have slowly read each and every word of all Department of Veteran Affairs letters. The first dated January 2, 2018 (my husband died March 22, 2018). It appears this was the letter from the VA letting my husband know they received his claim. The second dated January 18th, 2018. Is
  11. Berta I believe my husband did have a pending claim though I still am not sure what this means exactly. The entire letter read exactly as follows: "Mr. X Based on a recent review of your records and examination, the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has determined that your disability, injury, or condition meets the criteria of a catastrophic disability. As a result you will be you will be immediately enrolled in Priority Group 4, unless you are eligible for enrollment in a higher Priority Group. Official notification of the changes in your enrollment status will be sent by separ
  12. Thank you so much. I wish I had found this website much much sooner. I am stunned at the moment. I just check my claim status online and.....a decision was rendered today for my 1151 Claim? Are there any other options for finding out the decision other than waiting for it to arrive by mail?
  13. Oceanbound, You rock. I want to contact Dr. Todd do you by chance know his first name or where I can locate his information. Also, do you know the answer to my 1151 offset question above. Just call me MIKE! Thank you so much for your help.
  14. Berta I used the link to search for all providers involved in the care of my husband. They are all VAMC employees except for the many residents. (I am not sure what the residents fall under). I also emailed a copy of the post to my attorney. In regard to the 1151 offset factor..... My husband and I have a son whom is now 9 together. My husband also has five other adult children from his first wife whom died. It is my understanding in the State of Tennessee any settlement or award recieved who be distributed as follows after attorney fees: 1/3 goes to the surviving spouse,
