    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?”

  • 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

Ent/imo What Question Should I Ask , When Making Appointment?



I tried once already to get an IMO from an ENT specialist and it turned out to worthless when it came time to write the report. He used vague statements and the statement or Nexus to my in-service injury and current breathing problems was to broad to know which problems he noted were associated with the in-service injury and which ones were problems he found along with them, but were not related to the in-service injury.

I need to make sure this problem doesn't occur this time, I realy don't have the money for this visit with the specialist, even though Medicare will pay most of it, I still have money to pay towards my deductable, before Medicare pays it all.

Any suggestions on what to ask, make sure of, explain to the Dr. what ever?

Rockhound Rider :rolleyes:

Ask him if he has done opinions for SSA disability, or workers compensation. If he has then he probably knows that he has to make a definite opinion and not vague statements. Tell him up front what you want him to do and see what he says.

I plan to give them a copy of the C&P Guide for ENT exams, I will ask them about SSA claims and such.

Being without a PCP and the length of time it will to get an appointment to see a new one, I just hope they don't want a Dr. to Dr. referal like one Dr. I called, hoping to get in to see.

I'm going to try and see if SSA will give me a list of the ENT specialists they use in their exams, I might do the same for Workman's comp too.

I'm still upset with what is going on at the VA Hospital I go to. It's just not right the way they are, not only treating us, the Vet, but the way they have treated the Dr's on the Green teem that make up the Dr's and Psychiatrist teen that treat us with our special needs.

Thank you for the information,

Rockhound Rider
