  1. I am currently rated 10% for keratoconus with a visual acuity of 20/70 in my right eye and 20/40 in my left. The DVA decision letter states a higher evaluation is not warranted unless there is documented incapacitating episodes requiring treatment visits for my eye condition. My question is whether immunotherapy (allergy shots) would be considered treatment visits. I've been receiving 5 allergy injections weekly for the past several years to reduce my eye allergies so I can wear medically necessary sclera lenses for keratoconus. I have no other allergy symptoms except for my eyes. If I do

  3. Hi, I have been rated at 30% for PTSD since 2005 (60% total). In 2015 I lost my job and after a year social security found me eligible for social security disability benefits based on PTSD. I have not worked since. In 2018 I filed a claim for increases on several things but not for PTSD. At the same time, I was trying to get the VA to add depressive order to my list of service-connected items as I had the diagnosis for it. The VA then re-evaluated me for PTSD and said I was still at 30% and denied all my increases. I had never told the VA or the rater about social security finding me disabled
  4. Apparently, this new program settles increases in less than one month: https://www.military.com/militaryadvantage/2017/09/va-claims-new-program-will-allow-disability-ratings-in-30-days
  5. Hello, It has been a long time since I initially filed my claim back in 00 and don't remember it being this complex as I have read. Or maybe I am reading too much into it lol Currently, @20% due to Invertebral disc syndrome (discectomy) Service connected Looking to increase my rating due to a recent Spinal Fusion due to my rated condition and complications that arose during my surgery that was due to initial surgery while I was on active duty. I started my claim and now not sure how to proceed. 1. Can I file for an increase on my own?

    I already get CRSC- 30%, recently the VA upped it to 70%. I think I'll be getting too much VA money to keep getting CRSC, and I will get back pay from the VA. I am worried that I'll will incur a debt to the CRSC program for getting money I wasn't entitled to
  7. I have never applied for increased benefits. However readng HADIT it appearsthat I may be entitled to more than I am currently receiving. Below is my current rating as it stands in eBenefits. The Pes Planus is service related. Hearing loss is service related (I was a 13E in artillery). Nothing for vericose vein stripping? I just had the right leg in surgery. I have other items that I had while in service that have just gotten worse over the years. Can I file for those as well?
