38 CFR Part 4

RIN 2900-AM60

Schedule for Rating Disabilities; Appendices A, B, and C

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is revising its

Schedule for Rating Disabilities, Appendices A, B, and C to include all

current diagnostic codes. Appendix A is also amended to include all the

diagnostic code historical information since the last review.

DATES: Effective Date: This amendment is effective April 19, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Trude Steele, Regulations Staff

(211D), Compensation and Pension Service, Veterans Benefits

Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue,

NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 273-7210.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Schedule for Rating Disabilities, 38 CFR

Part 4, Appendices A, B, and C have not been updated since July 1,

1988. These Appendices are tools for users of the Schedule for Rating

Disabilities. The Appendices reflect changes to the diagnostic criteria

in the Schedule for Rating Disabilities.

We have amended the Appendices to add changes to the Schedule for

Rating Disabilities since the Appendices were last updated.

Additionally, we removed language in Appendix A that showed when a

diagnostic code was updated to correct spelling, revise text, or other

additional changes, which had no impact on the disability code. Those

changes were incorporated within the text when amended. All diagnostic

codes in Appendix A will now be categorized by when they were added,

removed, whether the criterion was amended, and whether the disability

evaluation was amended. We will continue to include the date for

historical purposes. We revised Appendices B and C to provide the

current diagnostic codes and disability terminology. We will continue

to update the Appendices as the Schedule for Rating Disabilities is

    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.
    • 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?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
