  1. Carlie you were a wonderful person. I remember you and you ability to calm me down. Sweet reason with a bit of sass. I wish you were not taken so early in this life. Perhaps we will meet again someday and somehow. I miss you. I don't even know why I am writing this but I was away for so long and missed so much. Seeing an old post of your brought back a lot of memories that I didn't even know I had sort of forgotten. Time makes starngers of us all it seems. Goodbye girl I hope God holds you tight.

  2. Thank you, RIP Carlie.

    After reviewing your profile, I was wondering if you could offer me advice regarding my current appeal?

  4. As usual - GREAT CUE post Berta. Your still tops in my book. Thanks for posting this one.
  5. What all and exactly is stated in the R&B section of the decision. It should say quite a bit more than just, not service connected.
  6. Fee Basis Fee Basis services. The Fee Basis Unit processes payment to non-VA providers who have been issued formal authorizations by the medical center to deliver care. For example, the Washington DC VA Medical Center does not provide certain women’s health services. When such services are determined necessary, a VA provider will initiate a consult, requesting approval to send the patient to a non-VA provider. If that request for an non-VA authorization is approved, the Fee Basis office will process payment to the provider after the services are provided. By law, VA payment for services not authorized in advance is strictly limited. Questions about non-VA care claims may be directed to the Fee Basis Unit between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The office located in room 1J154. The telephone number is 202-745-2473. http://www.washingtondc.va.gov/services/Fiscal_Service.asp **************** Veterans Choice What is the Choice Program? If you are already enrolled in VA health care, the Choice Program allows you to get health care from non-VA doctors. Using this program does NOT impact your existing VA health care, or any other VA benefit. Am I Eligible? If you are already enrolled in VA health care, you may be able to receive care from non-VA facilities, instead of waiting for a VA appointment or traveling to a VA facility. You are eligible if any of these situations apply to you: You have been (or will be) waiting more than 30 days for VA medical care You live more than 40 miles away from a VA medical care facility or face one of several excessive travel burdens. http://www.va.gov/opa/choiceact/
  7. If your willing to post all of and exactly what is stated in the Reasons and Bases Section, minus personal info like name, address, etc..... this will allow members to chime in with the best answers possible. Just because one suffers with SA alone, does not necessarily warrant SC. We need the complete info for the denial. jmho
  8. Usually, under these circumstances, someone higher than the PA such as an MD, will go over the findings and sign off on them. I do not remember of any credentialed specialist being needed for your type of disability, especially if ROM are involved, only that the examiner use a goniometer. Check out this bva remand for more info. http://www.va.gov/vetapp14/Files5/1442439.txt
  9. Well, there's also SMC/K for a few extra bucks, but I wish that on no one :-) jmho
  11. Thanks to all for the updates. Im sorry, but all I can keep thinking and feeling is damnit ! Just Damnit all the way to hell and back and I sure hope his family can get the FULL benefits both he and they have earned. I just re-read over lots of the emails and messages Stretch and I sent one another, and am cursing myself more because I missed his last phone call to me..... DAMNIT !!!!!!!!! Is it possible to post a link to some of his guitar playing ?
  12. I just dont understand why this topic is still being hijacked. jmho
  13. It would be most helpful if you could scan and post all of and exactly what is stated in the decision that denied. Also, what type of discharge did you receive ?
  14. How about posting exactly what your claim of CUE was submitted for. The exact legal error/s you feel they made and how if not for this error, it would have manifestly changed the outcome. Thanks
