  1. Don't know if this has been posted. DBQs back.... https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/dbq_publicdbqs.asp
  2. My last 3 C&P's were ALL done by VES. I know they done show up on Blue Button and I know you can go to the VARO in person to get them printed off for you. Problem is i the closest VARO is over 3 hours away and not doable for me at the moment. I have sent 2 letters to the VARO requesting both my denial letter form 2019 (that will determine if my EED claim is correct or not) and for the C&P exam notes but havent received any correspondence back. Are there any other avenues that anyones knows about that i can get access to these?
  3. I have some questions and wondering what some of your observations are. I had a c and p exam recently and got ahold of the DBQ. All the boxes the doctor checked were good for me. She checked all the right boxes and checked that I had PTSD and all the symptoms they went with it but in some of the comments she made, they seem really bad. So I'm wondering what matters more, the doctors observations or the boxes she checked? I'm rated at 60% currently with anxiety NOS and Tinnitus. I did not initiate the exam for an increase. It was one of the random c&p to see how things are going. This
  4. So, as some know I have been having a little war with the VA and my VSO, the American Legion, about getting my DBQ's. So today I went to the VSO's office in the VARO building during their "walk in" hours since I could not get them to give me an appointment. On the door was as sign saying the office was closed for the week for training and left the 800 number for Washington DC office. I knock on the door anyway. Two ladies answer. Tell them what I want and that I need them to do it today. They invite me into the office. I hand them a typed sheet with the Dates and
  5. I'm trying to make it easy for my doctor to help me with my VA claim. I'm filling out my DBQ for Migraines and I'm stuck on Section V 5B. I don't understand the section. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

  7. Only musculoskeletal DBQs (back upper and lower, knees, feet, hips, shoulders, arms, hands, etc.). Nothing else. The VA does them for FREE but if you need help (i.e. your claim is taking too long, VA will not examine you, or you need a second opinion), this guy I believe is among the best most qualified orthopedic surgeons I've seen in my life. He will be fair so please bring all your evidence to him. He will get paid no matter the outcome (favorable or unfavorable) of the exam. I felt he was fair on my exam. His contact information: Regional Orthopaedic Medicine: Weiss David DO Addr
  8. Hello everyone I am new to the site. And I recent submit a the dbq for an increase for my PTSD and I trying to understand it but im just not getting it. So I figured would ask you all. Below is what the examiner put in the record. Review Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Disability Benefits Questionnaire Name of patient/Veteran: ========= Is this DBQ being completed in conjunction with a VA 21-2507, C&P Examination Request? [X] Yes [ ] No SECTION I: ---------- 1. Diagnostic Summary --------------------- Does the Veteran
  9. Currently rated 10% for GERD and applied for an increase. Had my primary civilian doctor look over my medical records and asked if she would fill out a DBQ. Luckily she did because I know how some doctors would not. Anyone have any guess on if I could be getting an increase or not? Also, does anyone know if I will be scheduled for a C&P as well? It's no problem if I have to go but I just figured with a DBQ then it could easily be fast tracked without having to schedule a C&P since I had already been service connected. Thanks!
  10. I filed an agent orange cad claim by e-file using the option of a fully completed claim on March 5th. I received a 10 per cent disability decision this week. My mistake was I didn’t have my private physician Fill out a DBQ and complete the interview based METS section. My question is can I file another 21-526 EZ adding the new information for my approved 10 per cent by e-file? The approved 10 per cent is based upon medication only. I don’t want to appeal an approved claim and need to know how to correctly update that claim with new information .

  12. Been quite awhile since I posted anything... (Last post was this Been in that hurry up and wait limbo status that everyone hates, but after 630 on appeal via DRO process (average time was somewhere between 311 and 400 days I think) I finally receive a letter informing me that I have a disability examination. Since this is my first time through this part of the process I would like some simplified translation of what all of this means. At face value it looks as if it means they are going to look at my records and do an exam. But I also, understand that some of these individual
  13. I tried to find the DBQ for TBI from the download list. It is missing in action. Is this because of the revision in process of 38 CFR? I need it to get an neuropsychological assessment done by protocol by a local source. The VA is insisting they cannot use a local contractor and that I must travel to Denver, 3.5 hours away for the assessment. The remand didn't specify it be done by a VA qualified psychologist. Only that it be done in protocol which the last one wasn't. Looks like I'll have to go to the CAVC with this.
  14. After going over my progress notes from c&p I noticed some answers to questions that had different answers that I gave. For instance he said i have tingling down my left leg and not my right leg. After seeing my medical records and knowing how both my legs feel I'm wondering why he said one leg and not both. I know i told him both legs experience about the same amount of pain. I was awarded 10% for my left leg and nothing for my right leg. How shall I confront this issue?
  15. Hello team, I'm about to file my claim for Occipital Neuralgia. I want to use my private doctor with a DBQ. My issue is that I don't know which DBQ to use. There are two neurological DBQs that I think could be the one I need but, they don't list the occipital nerve on them. Can someone that is familiar with this help me? Peripheral Nerve Conditions http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-0960C-10-ARE.pdf Cranial Nerve Conditions http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-0960C-3-ARE.pdf I'll also have the doctor fill out the Headaches DBQ since this causes god awful hea
  16. Are there any suggestions or preferred methods on how to approach an independent doctor to perform a VA evaluation for your conditions, service connect an event during service, and fill out a DBQ?
  17. I recently completed my C&P exam on 3/14/17. Can anyone give me some insight on this. Some information I relayed to the Dr. apparently went in one ear and out the other. Any information is helpful. ThanksDBQ ( back ).pdf
  18. I am 70% with ptsd and lumbar strain. I have sinced been diagnosed with DMII, Hypertention and sleep apnea with a cpap machine. How or can I SC any of my diagnoses. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
  19. Hello all, I'm having a hard time finding a Dr willing to fill out VA DBQ forms. Va docs will not fill out I've seen two private orthopedic Dr's. They are to busy to fill out they say. I'm rated 10% each R/L hip bilateral coxa vara, 10% osteoarthritis right knee, 10% osteoarthritis of lumbar spine. My conditions have worsened docs recommend PT, I do twice a week have received shots for pain no relief. My other question the coxa vara was documented prior to enlistment, fit for duty, aggrevated and documented throughout enlistment also at ETS physical. According to AR 40-501 coxa vara is a condi
  20. HI everyone, I am helping my dad with his recently submitted claim. He requested an increase to his 30% rating from 2003, among other things. On ebennies it has DBQ PTSD Review recommended under "evidence needed." I sent quite a bit of evidence showing worsening conditions since 2003 when I submitted the FDC in December. Will not providing one hold up the process? Does he need to submit this DBQ? If he does, will it take him out of the Fully Developed Claims for submitting new evidence? Thanks for the help as usual.

  22. I recently finished a series of C&Ps for various conditions and I was hoping to get some input on just what exactly it all means - I was wondering what if any kind of rating might I be looking at? Is there a possibility for getting back pay? What can I do (possibly in an appeal) to do more to strengthen my case? At this point my case should be done with the gathering evidence phase (I can't check because ebenefits is being weird). All C&P's are done and everything that needed to be turned in is (I hope). The first C&P/DBQ I'd like assistance with is my claim for "Lower Back Co
  23. I have a TDIU claim that is awaiting to go to BVA since September 2011. I have a docket number. I recently put in a DBQ and IME saying I can't work at all and my condition is Catastrophic 100% disabling Permanent and total with reasonable medical certainty. I also have a Not Feasible for employment letter by Voc Rehab and am on social security. I now found out my case went to a DRO for review. Is this standard procedure for DRO to pull a case waiting for BVA and to relook at the case? Is this in my favor. I put in for TDIU could they give me Schedular rating instead. I still don
  24. On the Disability Benefits Questionnaire for my Doctor to complete (VA Form 21-0960N-1) (DBQ). It says select the veterans condition and then it has ICD code & Date of diagnosis. Is this the ICD code (Diag. Code) from my physician's statements? Can I submit to VA a copy of the physician's billing statement that has the diag. code on it along with a table of the explanation of the ICD CODE?
