Question

Question anyone.....

We filed a claim a few years ago for hypertension for my husband. He was denied. Basically the C & P examiner wouldn't state that the evidence we presented was enough to service connect him for this. Well, we refiled the claim again, based on our hearing with other claims at the BVA level. We brought up his hypertension and the BVA stated that we should get with the RO to have another review. This C & P exam he got stated that it was as least likely as not that his hypertension was due to his military service. We presented the same evidence as we did the first time we filed, but they denied it then. Now, all of a sudden with the same evidence, this examiner states it is service connected. Can we get them to go back to the original claim that was denied, even though we did not appeal it?

Also, we do not yet have a decision on this claim, but with the C & P examiners opinion, I don't see how they can deny it, but then, we are talking about the VARO who seems to be able to do what ever they waqnt. I might be getting the cart before the horse, but better to have some knowledge in advance in the event there is a problem.

Thanks for your help.

MSSOUP- I think this would fit into the criteria of a CUE claim-

it might depend on when that old denial occurred-

if you go to my blog at hadit there is info there on CUES.

Also if you type in CUE at the BVA search site the denials and successes of CUE claims will both be of a help-

and you will see what I mean-

CUE is a legal error -not a medical one, but can correct an error that denied an original claim.

Here is one of my favorites-

    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?”

    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
