Question

I asked my VARO for information pertaining to the date range of claims/appeals they were currently working. Their reply follows:

Dear Mr. xxxx:

We do not process appeals or claims in 'blocks' with date ranges. They are worked in date of claim or date of appeal order. You requested a video hearing on your VA Form 9, dated February 15, 2008. The original date of your notice of disagreement was September 11, 2007. We are currently setting video hearings for appeals that were received between the end of 2006 and early 2007. I cannot tell you when your hearing will be scheduled.

I hope this answers your question.

Thank you for contacting us. If you have questions or need additional help with the information in our reply, please respond to this message or see our other contact information below.

Sincerely yours,

I think you confused them with a logical question. Nevertheless, you got a cognitive answer ;)

My VC hearings were at the beginning of the new VC process. I guess VA is trying to get the VC hearings in sync with the regular hearings. This is very sad. The process was supposed to eliminate waiting for long periods of time.

I do know that VC hearing have cancellations and move hearing up in date, if approved by the VET. You may be able to move up the date in this way.

Thanks for the info! I also thought the VC hearing would be faster. I'm hoping my new and material evidence that I've submitted will negate the need for a VC hearing.

Thanks again...

Ron, at least you did not get this answer. Duh, Which Way doo we go??????

I have always said they go by dates of claims as they are instructed to do claims by date. This allows them to take full advantage of the time alotted to process claims, and cost the Vet time. Even if the claim is a slam dunk and can be processed quickly. Then when they get into the flurry at the end of the dates period, They process a bunch of claims in a hurrid manner thus creating some of these rediculous denials we often see.

  • 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.
    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
