Hi Berta thank you for your reply.For General Counsel Mr. Bradshaw,Ann Marie Duncan,Mrs Williams,Katherine Simpson,and some folks at VBA such as John Buck,Diane Reuben,Steve Furier no response I believe for Field Operations.And just spoke with a Tracy Knight and she told me what to do about Tampering with Documentations and to be Concise send it to her at Gen. Counsel and The Inspector General,For Fabrication or Tampering Documentations for the inaccuracies.again just another anchor to haul up from the bottom of the SEA.I am beging to see the tactics of the VA VBA BVA VARO VAMC,There is so much on the plate to inhibit or dicourage a person that you throw up your hands and say F--K IT and walk away.Or have created so much confusion in addition too what already is nothing short of a nitemare. OMG I am sorry I just can not take it anymore. I am still waiting for HOW may I be of Assistance to your issues? thank you Berta God Love You

Mcafee,

Sorry for the horrible runaround you are getting in regards to your records. Sounds like you are getting nowhere with the VA....so have you thought about going above their heads? Call your Congressman's office...call your Representative...call the media...in short...makes lots of noise because that is what the VA hates the most.

As far as your records being "flagged". Have you confirmed that they are indeed flagged? You might want to request this info via a FOIA request. I know there is an official procedure to have the flagged status removed....I just need to find out what it is. Perhaps someone on this forum knows of it as well.

Have you sent a letter to the FOIA representative at the VAMC you are trying to receive the records from? Send your letter to that person certified and in the body of the letter state you are requesting any/all records/appointments/test results/lab results/adaptive equipment,etc and anything that may be in their files/folders and any on microfilm...including those in archives...

When you sign off be sure to note you wii be sending cc:to congressman(name), cc:senator etc so that when they sign for it and see you are indeed saying the political advocates will be receiving copies of this letter they should act on it as the governmental employees you listed will contact them to check on the progression of the information you had requested.

The looser that did my C&P said "vet states previous treatment at this VAMC in the mid eightys for back pain and removal of tumor on face, no such treatment records noted." The bit*c didn't check archives...and what do you know, there they were!

  • 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.
