Hello good people. I was just curious to know how retro pay would work in this situation? Of course this is something that could happen to me since I have a pending appeal, but I thought it would be a good question for those in a similar situation. Scenario: Awarded 30% in 11/2008 Initial appeal is dated back to 6/2009 Appeal was not worked on for years. Awarded for new claims in 2011 & 2014 that increased my rating to 40% If my appeal is awarded 10%(or so) higher and retro-pay is dated back to the 2009 date, do any of you know how they calculate retro pay with periods of increased ratings? Thanks Jfizzle
This is mostly venting, but I bet I am not the only person who went through this: Background: About six months ago I asked the VAMC PCP for an MRI referral. I needed to schedule some cervical and lumbar pain blocks and the docs needed to know which vertebral levels to inject. After a nightmare dealing with a moron PCP the VAMC, I got the first MRI three months later, but only for lumbar. I switched PCP docs. Now: After seeing my new PCP, I was told they would schedule me for the other MRI. After three months, I never was called or received an appointment letter in the mail. I called the PCP nurse and was told I needed to come back and see the doc before having the appointments made. What? I called the Patient Rep. A few days later, I get a call stating they could get me scheduled toward the end of December. I told them I was waiting since June. Last week, the lady calls me back an hour later stating they could get me in if I showed up (today) at 6:45 am for a 7:00 am appt because they will have a tech arrive early. Not true. I waited 45 minutes before being called back. The tech said he doesn't know why they do that to us vets because they know he does not show up for work until 7:30 am.
