Question

I have a C & P Exam scheduled for next week for Hearing Loss. I'm deaf in one ear(not service Related), but I'm going for a partial loss of hearing on my good ear, which the VA has provided a hearing aid for me. I'm from the Viet Nam era - with a combat star. I'm trying to say when I went to "A" School, my other aviation schools,working on the line with my squadron, and serving on many detachments in the Pacific, all we had were the ear-plugs in the plastic containers. There were no "Mickey Mouse Ears back then. Are they going to eat me up...

Unless you use a seeing eye dog expect a rating of 0% For some reason they don't ever give a rating for hearing loss, maybe thats cause they will always give you hearing aids???

Here is the exam you are going to have.

Here are the ratings for the ears.

Study them closely and compare your latest hearing test to the charts attached.

Just a reminder - if you have any noticeable ringing, clicking or background static noises in your ears, please be sure to tell the hearing examiner.

That's because, in addition to hearing loss, the VA can also separately rate you as having tinnitus. (The max rating for tinnitus is 10%)

Best of Luck.

P.S. I like your icon. Ha ha. :(

:( I just want to say "Thanks" for the info you have given me. I will go to my C & P pleading my best case, and Sunday I will certainly spend some quality time at "Altar Call" asking for God to be my go between. Can I go to Medical Records right after the hearing for a copy, or must I get it from another source at a later date?

  • 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.

    • 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.
