Question

Hello All and a Happy Belated Veterans day to the Hadit family. I spent all day at the VA hospital yesterday with test (Pulmonary)Xrays and the most argumentative, obnoxious VA doctor I have had yet.I will post on his comments on this subject under a different title, as it is pretty clear what the VA doctors are and are not going to do for any Veteran. My question is that I have a claim that was reopened and denied for hearing , tennitus from 1973. I asked my PCP VA doctor if he could request one and he said that he did but the VA said I "was not service connected" and declined one. I am waiting for a call from the VBA officer to see how I can get one. Talking with several Veterans on this one and they are stumped as to why they denied me the hearing test. I have not had one since the military days. What do you do ? I sure don't want to do an out of pocket private Dr as I am about IMO'd out to the poor house. I just finished with a Neurologist and will get another IMO concerning AO and my peripheral neuropathy. My lawyer and the Private Neuro said I should also get another Eye Doctor for an IMO that can link chemical exposure to my Dry Eyes/Atherosclerosis exam/dianosis from a contract VA doctor. This is sure getting complicated and of course very frustrated. Any thoughts or recommendations on a eye doctor or a way to get the VA to give me an ear test would be helpful. God Bless, Never Give Up..C.C.

I gave up on tinnitus cause I really don't need it anymore. However, I believe it is a good thing to be rated on anything that you can connect to service.

Good Luck and hang in there.

Hello Pete,,,, thanks for the encouragement with these beast. What would you do to get VA to give a hearing test? Is this legal for them to refuse me a hearing test? God BLess, C.C.

Request that the RO order a C&P is the only thing I can think of. They never gave me one but they gave me a hearing aid go figure.

Or thinking about it ask your PCP to order one

Good Luck

  • 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.
