Berta & Carlie.............Thank you very much for thr responses to my question....I suppose I read the article wrong about "As likely as not" being the best as I have always asked for "More Likely than not"

Well, yesterday I called my Primary & asked if she would change it to "More likely than not" & she assured me she would & that she would send me a couple of copies of it.

That makes about 5-6 "More likely than nots" I have received from VA Docs,etc.

Again, Thank You

That's the best you can get --- things are looking better for you.

I hope she also backs the statement up with Medical Rationale.

Example of Rationale: Medical Evidence that supports the doc's opinion.

After reviewing veterans SMR's and Progress Notes dated XX-XX-XXXX,

X-rays dated XX-XX-XXXX and MRI dated XX-XX-XXXX.

It is my Medical Opinion that Mr. XXX's Diagnosis of XXXX is more likely than not

related to XXXXX injury or XXXXX Disease that began in military service.

Hope this helps a vet.

    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. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    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.
