    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

Dr shopping, hiding/distroying evidence and ignoring evidence is causing the remands.

You can hire a million raters and if their trained to violate current laws designed to assist veterans, nothing will change. This is an example of that.

It's not the VCAA law, it's the agency wide qoata set at 4%

Somethings going on? No duh!

This is not all of the problem. I have waived the 60 days to submit additional evidence on all claims, other than what has already submitted, which is much, and well grounded. The waiver form was sent by VA, signed dated and returned and also spoken verbally to the RO. I was told multiple times by the 1-800 people, they say we have made a note as to such a waiver and in your file and we will move forward. When I call the next time I get a different person who says I guess we are waiting on C&P exams. I say I have completed all sheduled C&P's months ago. This has been going on for 8 months and I don't see any moving yet. I have three claims , one award granted out of 11 years of filing and the rest denied all in the same letter. After I appealed all my conditions, the claim became three separtate claims??????? Out of those 3 claims, all of which have much convincing evidence medical by the VA themselves and the claim with the most convincing compelling evidence to raise my percentage on the granted condition, is pending and the others appeals with the appeals team supposedly.

There is always something that slows down claims. Aby kind of protection is better than what we had.

It is this damn not accepting treating doctor statements that is slowing down the process. I have help many veterans who have submitted well grounded medical statements from neurologist, cardio docs etc...... each of these were met with a VA exam from a NP or gen practice doc that did not even cover the areas of the claim which the rater used to deny the claim. That my dear friends is the problem. I can see them being leary of a statement/opinion from a non-treating doctor like DR. Bash (not saying bad things about him) but when all of the evidence submitted is from a vet's treating doctor then there is no need for a C&P and surely no room for a rater to be able to weigh and assign a probative value to such a statement. With guys like Dr. Bash, although he is good, very good, there are many who will write anything for 500 dollars just my opinion.
