More likely than not, means the injury or illness is more than a 50/50 chance of being service connected. This is the statement a rater needs to service connect.

is as likely as not related, would mean its about equal. This would not help you with service connection.

Service connection must be based on a more than likely bases, backed with records and a connection between your claimed issues and service injuries/illnesses.

The mere statement of more likely than not, is not enough to service connect the claim. It must be explained in detail by the Dr why they're for it or against it or the VA will shoot it down.

VA 101.

Md opinions corregating claims to military service in the requested opinion on the Compensation and Pension examinations. Taking into consideration that VA C@P examinations are now computer generated and the questions are actually asked by the RO. Please regard that these questions can be leading to the Doctors and sometimes they even go fishing for a different opinion based upon their own ideas. Then the request for exam asks for a summary as to why the Doctor opied the way he did.

It is best to get a copy of the exam to read the entire exam as well as the Doctors notes.

I used them as a template to my claim and the exams were dead on. I had to fight a little harder as the doc found evidence int he record not even considered by the RO.

Not likely means 0 percent sure

less likely is less than 50 percent sure

At least as likely as not means 50 persent sure ( benefit of doubt rule should kick in)

More likely than not means 75 percent sure.

Was due to means 100 percent sure.

I had 2 more likelys and a was due to and they still tried to jerk it around.

Anyway it was a very favorable exam. I just hope the VA listens to the examiner. They should

  • 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.
