Question

I received my DRo hearing appointment letter and unfortunately it is during the two weeks this summer that I will be on the other side of the country. I called and dropped of a written statement asking VA to defer the hearing as I will be out of town for a wedding and made sure to state that I will gladly appear at any time before or after the dates f my trip. Calls to the 800 number verify that they have noted this.

My question is; am I gonna have to wait ANOTHER 90 days or more for the rescheduled hearing? I know there is no hard and fast on this, but has anyone else had to reschedule a DRO hearing? The hearing is to appeal a 10% knee ruling and a denial of SC for my IVDS/DDD (back). All evidence is in (even that waste of $1500.00 report from Dr. Bash) so it is strictly a matter of rescheduling....... or it should be.........

Thanks all!

If you can't make it, then you can't make it, and it really doesn't matter then what time frame they put on it, does it?

I mean, this IS the VA we're talking about, right?

You DO know how twisty they can get when you don't show, and you cannot depend on ANY one "getting the word" that you needed to reschedule, si'?

I guess I'm being a smartass, and if so, I apologize....it's just that I've been a YEAR getting my DRO hearing.

And, besides, I try to MISS all weddings possible (probably because I'm batting 50% on these wedding deals)! There's ONE of them that I wish I had attended a DRO hearing instead...)!

:P

Oh yeah, one other thing:

Fer gosh sakes DO NOT tell them that you have to reschedule due to the fact that you're gonna be "on vacation"! Make it sound like you'd love to be there for the DRO hearing, but, unfortunately you have that date already booked for your heart donor surgery.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
