Yellow Envelope In The Mail


Ricky

Question

In my previous post the status of my claim was DRO process complete resulting in a partial grant. Today I received a yellow envelope stuffed full of claim documents, medical evidence and statements. The packet also included complete copies of the last two claims that I filed. No note or anything from the VARO just the documents all time and date stamped by the VARO. Anyone have any ideas why this was done?

Unless someone says different, It looks like you may need to make a trip to the VARO and speek to a claims manager to get to the bottom of, why they would send all this to you. If some of this information turns out to be the only copy your C-File had, then the person rating your claim may not have all the information and evidence to base his opinion on. I personally would want to know for sure if this stuff is just someone who made copies of everything and is sending you your copies back.

I would not take the word of a phone clerk to give you the correct answer, a claims mamager is the lowest person on the totum pole I would believe. Maybe the could issue a memo, just a short one saying that all the enformation you were sent is in the file and ask to see your file to make sure.

Sorry, but I am a bit paranoid, but that is part of my diagnosis. LoL ;) Just because your paranoid doesn't mean their not out to cheat you. LoL

Ricky:

If you live close to the RO you should go as soon as it is convienent. If I were you I would consider opying all the info for my own records and than take it back and see what they have to say.

It appears that when it was time to clean up their desk your VA Employee got confused and mixed up your C File with the documents that they entended to mail you.

I agree with Pete and Jim. Go to your Regional VA office and find out what is going on with your claim. These guys can make a complete mess of your claim and cost you years of heartburn. You need to talk to a human being face to face at the VA. Don't get mad just insist on getting a full explanation.

When you think IT WON't get NUTTIER!!!

Hey, Maybe they have decided you can rate your own claim!!! LOL

I think you would probably do a better job. Of course, they would make you explain your rationale completely no doubt.

COPY COPY COPY; DATE STAMP AT RO AND GET AN EXPLANATION!!!

If I rate my own claim must I consider all of the evidence? I think that I will toss the IMO's just so I can remand the claim back to myself. Heck guys - this just might be fun. If I am good at the rating game you guys could just send all of your future claims to me. I promise to issue denial ratings within 30 days of receipt of the claim and will insure that only two remands will be needed. If I succeed at rating maybe next I will take over vet health care. I will charge each vet a yearly fee for health care and do away with co-pays just to make vets think that I have actually given them something all the while putting the royal screw to them. HEY I AM GOOD AT THIS VA THING. On a more serious note - I only live three hours away so I plan to take a trip within the next two weeks and sit down with snuffy the service center manager and find out what is going on. Thanks for the advice.

O O O O O - I forgot I could also take over the 1-800 service also. I will have an 800 number installed here at home. Just simply call 1-800-URS-CREWED. "Good afternoon veteran, this is Ricky speaking how can I help you today?" "The status of your claim?" "Let me just check that for you vet." "lets see, hmmm, the computer says that you are one of the lucky ones cause your claim is now in the development phase." I understand vet that your claim has been processing for 14 years, but it is being worked on." "Do you know how many claims we process per year vet?" "Now we are taking just a little bit of time on your claim because we want to insure that it is rated properly so you will need to call us again at this number in about 2 years and we will be able to give you another update." Now is there anything else I can help you with today?"

My lord it is getting late and I think that I do need to submitt another claim for mental problems. Good night to all.

Boy- that's good-

I have heard of some weird stuff but this takes the cake---

I suggest that you write a letter to the Director of that Varo - telling them what you received in the mail-unless you want to wait to get there in person with it all- what concerns me is that-

since YOU have all this stuff from your claims file and they don't -how are they working on your claim?

Maybe this is a new VARO stall tactic- just send the claimant all their stuff back -and get it off a clerk's or DRO's desk-

I feel jealous- I had a copy and paste sameo sameo De Novo review- in Sept-

At least you got back something intelligent- the claims you wrote yourself!

"I think that I do need to submit another claim for mental problems."

Yeah- this is the kind of VARO crap that gave me VA- induced PTSD.

Be careful Ricky, The Service Center Manager may try to hire you.
