  1. My claim was closed after just 90 days under the BBD program. I was shocked that it was that quick. Claim started in Winston-Salem and moved to St. Pete. Date of retirement: 31 May 13 Claim closed: 1 Sep 13.
  2. Thanks to all of you. I received my Big White Envelope. AICD/Cardiomyopathy - 100% Proteinuria and hypertension - 60% Sleep Apnea - 50% Diabetes mellitus type II and ED - 20% (it did not say anything about SMC-K, I'm going to check on this.) Gout - 20% Tinnitus - 10% Shoulders/Knees/Patellofemoral syndrome with brace - 10% Just waiting on my dependents to be added. If forget to provide the total number of times my spouse has been married...only one time. Also, I have to provide my daughters school info. Now, I need to do some research on the following statement "We granted entit
  3. Question...I just received my fedx package for my QTC appointments. Is it normal to get scheduled for a Echocardiogram exam since I already have a AICD for Cardiomyopathy? I have had it for 3 years, implanted while on active duty. Effective retirement date is 1 Jun 13.
  4. Using the Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD), to file my VA claim on 2 Jan 13 for an Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (2010), Obstructive sleep apnea with CAP, Diabetes mellitus type II., Nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy with history of congestive heart failure. All the mentioned issues were taken directly from my last MEB paper, but I was returned to duty. I am retiring from the Air Force after 25 years, now the waiting game begins. This site is a wealth of information. Thanks.
  5. I got it...thanks. Hopefully I do not have to go back and forth with the VA over this. Thanks.
  6. Is there anyone out here that have gotten out within the last 2 years that has gotten approved for 100% for an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. I'm still on active duty and retiring in 6 months. I have inquired before, but, I'm confused. Help.
  7. Correct, the MEB came back with a return to duty but I now have a DC of 7020 from the MEB for Cardiomyopathy with a AICD.
  8. Congrats. Was the AICD rated at 100%?
  9. Does anyone know if this is correct? I have a implanted ACID, SC and still on active duty.
  10. If I'm reading it correctly, it's a 100%. But I could be wrong, I have answered the questions that you posed and that's the answer that I came up with. Thanks.
  11. From reading 38 CFR 3.303(a) http://www.benefits....ART3/S3_303.DOC my condition is service connected. My ACID was implanted due to Cardiomyopathy, which is DC 7020. So, correct me if I'm wrong, I'll be evaluated under DC 7020-7011. Thanks for leading me down the right path. I'm just trying to figure this all out. Because, from reading 7011 about ACID's it states that it's a 100% rating. 7011 Ventricular arrhythmias (sustained): For indefinite period from date of hospital admission for initial evaluation and medical therapy for a sustained ventricular arrhythmia,
  12. So, do you think that this means I will be eligible to recieve a 100% rating due to my implantable Cardioverter- Defibrillator? I'm still on active duty in the Air Force and had a MEB and was returned to duty. I received a DC of 7020 from the MEB and had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator installed. My cardiologist says it's service connected. Your thoughts?

  14. I'm still on active duty in the Air Force and had a MEB and was returned to duty. I received a DC of 7020 from the MEB and had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator installed. I believe this is service connectable.
  15. So, if my implantable Cardioverter- Defibrillator was placed in because of Cardiomyopathy. Does that still mean I will recieve a 100% rating?

  17. I just had my implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) surgery done last week. After I go through my recovery period, I'll be facing a MEB. From what I've been hearing I'll be receiving a 100% disability rating? Can I apply for my benifits before I retire, because I'm retirement eligible also? Thanks for all the advice.
  18. Thanks to all of you. Looks like I'll be getting that 100%. I just want to be able to go out and get another job.
  19. Can anyone explain Combat-Related Special Compensation to me? For example, is it based on your overall va rating? Or, for only the injuried knee etc, not for the overall rating? Thanks in advance.
  20. That's good to here. I'm still on active duty and after the surgery I'll be facing a MEB. The good thing is that I'm already over 20 yrs in the AF. I'm going to sit back and see how things play out. Thanks......
  21. I have a implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) surgery date for Jun 10. Hopefully I have been reading the DC's correct. I think I'll be receiving a 100% disability rating? Am I correct? If so, do I have to go through C&P yearly? Any advise.......thanks everyone.
  22. Hello, I have the below problem and was told that I might face a MEB board. My ejection fraction at first was 18% and now it's 25%. I'm going to have a implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) placed in my chest in Jun 10. Correct me if I'm reading this the wrong what. Is the below stating that a person with a automatic implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (AICD) in place, receives a 100% disability rating? 7011 Ventricular arrhythmias (sustained): For indefinite period from date of hospital admission for initial evaluation and medical therapy for a sustained ventricular arrhy
