Question

What are the requirements for a veteran to have have his/her SCed condition reevaluated for a higher rating? In other words, can one just send the VARO a personal statement that he/she feels the condition has worsened and that a new evaluation is requested.

The reason I ask is because I included such a comment in my correspondence when I filed a NOD on a heart condition in September 2007 (this is currently on appeal since the DRO decision denied my NOD).

The DRO denial did not address my comment about the deterioration of my condition.

Thanks,

Ron

I would Iris them and see if they are considering that as a formal claim.

Maybe best bet is to file it as a formal claim.

Unless the NOD was for same thing? a higher rating?

Or are you claiming the heart condition as secondary to what you have SC for now?

I'm pretty sure they are not considering it as a formal claim since it was more than a year ago and I have NOT received any correspondence with regard to it. The NOD was for the same thing, a higher rating. The heart condition is the condition that I am discussing--it is not secondary.

Thanks!

Thanks, I thought so Carlie. I have requested an informal conference with a DRO at the VARO.

Haven't heard back yet, but probably will within the next few days--I requested a letter response rather than email or IRIS.

  • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
