  1. Hello everyone, I have a question relating to the DBQ that is used for asthma claims (linked below). RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS (OTHER THAN TUBERCULOSIS AND SLEEP APNEA) DISABILITY BENEFITS QUESTIONNAIRE http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-0960L-1-ARE.pdf My DAV rep wants me to send in a DBQ and says it must be filled out completely, including the PFT values. My asthma was rated at 60% because I received 3+ courses of oral or parenteral corticosteroids within a 12 month period. Because my asthma is rated due to this criteria, not the PFTs, would I still need to have the PFT scores? Should my doc send in the DBQ without PFT's or should they simply enter the values of my most recent PFTs from about a year ago? Thanks
  2. I have a pending claim for multiple sclerosis and sinusitis. The claim has a thorough IMO, SMRs, MRI images on DVD, and buddy statements. It is a "fully-developed" claim, with no further evidence to submit. However, no DBQs were sent in with my claim (based on multiple opinions from trusted folks that said they were not going to add any value). Because I am living and working in Afghanistan, attending any C&P exams will be quite difficult for me. Thus, I called my VARO to find out what I could expect with how my claim would be processed. The VA rep I talked to said that the appropriate DBQs will be mailed to me for what I claim, and I would have 60 days to have them completed. I can have any qualified physician (I'll use my IMO doc, of course) complete these to submit back to the VA. Are these recently launched DBQs now being used in place of showing up for C&P exams? That would be great if that were the case. I am guessing the VA is doing this to fray some of the costs and time to process claims? Seem like this is too simple a process...
  3. Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows which DBQ form is used for lung cancer? Thanks. Mil T
