Do you have a copy of the VHA memo advising VA doctors about giving letters to Veterans seeking evidence for VA disability claims?

It might be interesting to see what is meant by the "conflict of interest" statements. How can a medical opinion by a treating doctor involve conflict of interest, unless, as I suspect, a veteran favorable opinion by a VA treating doctor may have "administrative" repercussions for the doctor.

There used to even be a VA form for such an opinion.

Chuck:

In the old days if a treating Doc helped Veterans he or she was subject to VA reprisals. My old shrink used to say that he would help as much as he could in progress notes but if he wrote a Medical Opinion favorable to my claim he could not treat me anymore.

I have a question or two. When I requested a copy of my C&P exams I noticed at the bottom of the summary of the exam it states "Was a medical opinion requested? No. I thought the exam was for an opinion. I did'nt know I needed to ask for an opinion. Should a vet ask for an opinion? It makes me think I made a mistake notto ask for an opinion.

  • 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.
    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
