Just got word from the local VAMC idiot that they denied mine.....how do you appeal or can you?

He said that he thought I did not continualy wear my hinged metal knee braces, that were prescribed in the military before I retired. Have 10% SC on both knees for athritis and menicus removal. Don't use the VA fro any medical treatment because of haing Tricare and use military facilities. I saked him if he even had my electronic VA Case File in front of him from the Regional Office in Roanoke he said no he did not need it.....what.

So looks like I am in for a fight anyon else have this problem before?

Thanks

Was the 'local VAMC idiot' this VAMC's Medical Director or his/her designee?

The Chief Medical Director or a designee of the

Chief Medical Director must certify that because of the

prosthetic or orthopedic appliance, clothing of the veteran

tends to wear out or tear. 38 C.F.R. § 3.810(a)(2) (1999).

You certainly can appeal this decision.

Berta,

Not sure did state his title, on the phone or letter they sent me on 8/27/07 the letter did not even have my name correct...lol they could not even get that right from the application in front of them. Oh well he said he would send denial out who knows when though. I see my Physcal Therapist with the millitary next week for my neck will see if he can write me up somthing on the knee braces. The stuff we have to go throgh to get benifits. The whole time guy was sayining we are here to help Vets ya right the VA Motto....LOL such BS

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
