Ha! That's about what one might exspect; it takes a psychiatrist or Phd phycologist to initally diagnose a MH condition, but only a social worker or nurse to take it away! I'm surprized they didn't include janitors in the mix.

Yes, a nurse at the VA can overcome your board certified psychiatrist's opinion. You see what a racket this is, and what they are doing to less well informed vets.

Hell they do it to informed vets also and there ain't nuttin one can do except appeal, appeal, appeal. That will get you a remand, remand, remand. Then the remand will get you a continued denial, denial, denial. And there ain't nuttin you can do except appeal appeal........... Man, seems like a big circle don't it? hahahaha

Amazing, simply amazing.

My civilian shrink says that bipolar is a difficult illness to manage, and he's a shrink w/ over 20 years experience but the VA thinks just about anyone can diagnose mental illness.

Carlie, thanks again for these informative posts!

Hey TS, within the VA system the hosptial janitor can diagnose a mental illness!!!! Just listen to the chatter the next time you vist a VAMC. If you hear the janitor say "man that dude was crazy" you are in - confirmed diagnosis! However, if you hear the records clerk say "come on now don't be stupid" then that means you are faking it and there is no way your claim will be approved! Remember, the records clerk opinion and diagnosis is more probative than that of any 20 year accredited CIVILIAN doctor. :rolleyes:

Now, Ricky, lets be fair to the janitors...we must address them as "registered professional custodians" and if you look up their job descriptions...the VA ranks their opinions above all civilian doctors, shrinks and the local dog catcher. After they master floor polishing, they make them raters.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
