Hurryupnwait needs your assistance please.

( His last post)

I spoke to Dr. Bash, he wants to see my file at AMC, maybe Dean could help with getting him permission to see the file. I m not sure how all this will work. He wants me to go to DC for an exam in his office.

He thinks the AMC is trying to find a way out of the favorable c&p exam.

You will need the attached form as a start. It may be better to --

Hand carry it to the VA--

Or, file it via Dr. Bash to the VA.

The problem is to get a response as soon as possible from the VA.

Remember Dr. Bash needs both the medical records and to mollify the VA, your service records.

A second from may also be needed, having to do with the freedom of information act.

The major reason for this form (It really can be a letter with the appropriate words.) is to put the VA on notice that it is receiving a request covered under the FOIA law, and there are possible repercussions if it does not comply with the time limits set by the law. (Mainly, you complain, and they get a black mark.) The time limit is something like twenty working days.

"Dr. Bash wants to examine me and submit his imo to AMC. He asked that I fly out in about ten days"

I have no idea what I could possibly do to help here-

Is the AMC refusing to release the medical records?

Is that the problem?

Dr. Bash needs all medical records, the SMRs ,unless presumptive (like AO) and even any SOCs etc that denied the claim-that contain the reasons and bases.

I personally would not ever make a FOIA request for medical records.

It takes too long-

Is that the problem- that you dont have them?

Dr Bash offered to go view my claims file at the AMC, since he works nearby. Do you know what we need to get him that permission?

The telephone answerer at AMC did not know how to do it.

    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?”
