Diagnostic Codes, What Good Are They?

Rate this question

Guest Jim S.


In my Medical Board Summery and on my DD214 and other documents, the DC for a specific mental disorder is listed with a corresponding VA DC.

Their must have been some thought in listing the particular DC that they did, that the criteria for the DC must have been met for them to have done so or more closely met those particular findings in the DC used.

What good are these findings and their DC's if the VA rating officer doesn't consider the time and evidence that went into, to support them, to list them in the first place?

What good are these DC's if the VA Rating officer denies the claim, without finding fraud and/or error in the DC that supports SC, or uses a diagnosis that is different and seperate from the original diagnosis and its associated DC to deny the claim saying that the alternative diagnosis does not support SC?

Nor does the diagnosis by the VA Examiner meet the requirement with the DSM II, DSM III, or even in the current DSM IV or DC of that period.
