Can you give us some idea as to what you are claiming is SC? The more information you can post, the better the response will be.

could be the doctors name

I am at a loss because I have over 15 claims now,that I filed after I recieved my Disability.

70% PTSD- 10% Tinitis,and 10% athlet foot, T&P

I filed for shoulder- rotator -always in pain.

Bilateral Peripheral Neuropathy-loss of feeling/with a lot of pain.

HBP

Ulcers

Migrains

Heart Problems

Social isolation

Sleep Apnea

TMJ

Agoraphobin

Gerd

Arthritis

(A Clain For EED)

Also asked for an effective date for PTSD to the date indicated in my file-1999( When VA Put it down in my medical chart)

Diagnostic Status:

AXIS 1 309.81 Posttraumatic Stress Disorder,Chronic with Delayed Stress(as likely as not)

AXIS 11 None

Axis 111. Peripheral Neuropathy,Skin,Hearing,and Heart Problems.

The Dr. put this in my records,in 1999, but I never Knew about it until I read it in my medical records YEARS Latter.

In one of my C&P s,the C&P report says that (as likely as notthat being chronically stressed or depressed drom PTSD definitely could have affected his heart condition.

well don't get your hopes up on getting an effective date of 1999 for PTSD even though they diagnosed it, you still had to have filed a claim for it, and if you didn't, it's one of those "meyon hum chum's " or "solly charlie" social isolation is a sympton of PTSD they don;t pay extra for it, expect a fight on the heart and PTSD issue, that is not always clear cut, you will probably have to appeal that to BVA, the way you put P&T at the end of it are they paying you TDIU at the P&T rating?

John is correct- the EED is most always the date of their receipt of your claim-

The doctor's statement as to the heart-PTSD should support secondary SC for the CAD, and I would add to HBP, etc and anything else related to heart for that part of claim-

What is the VA's reason that you have peripheral neuropathy? I would imagine that even if you do not have diabetes-which this is often from- the heart involvement would cause this- has the VA doctor said anything like that?

Do you have an actual copy of that C & P?

I am a little confused- do you get the 100% rate?

Are your cardiac problems enough to qualify you for SMC? Special Monthly Compensation?

Have they coded your heart disease and HBP yet?

"The veteran's service-connected heart diseased is evaluated

as 60 percent disabling under Diagnostic Code (DC) 7005,

which evaluates arteriosclerotic heart disease. 38 C.F.R.

§ 4.104, DC 7005. A 60 percent evaluation will be assigned

where there is more than one episode of acute congestive

heart failure in the past year; or a workload of greater than

3 METs but not greater than 5 METs results in dyspnea,

fatigue, angina, dizziness, or syncope; or left ventricular

dysfunction with an ejection fraction of 30 to 60 percent.

Id. A 100 percent evaluation will be assigned where there is

chronic congestive heart failure or; a workload of 3 METs or

less results in dyspnea, fatigue, angina, dizziness or

syncope; or left ventricular dysfunction with an ejection

fraction of less than 30 percent. Id."

If you have one total SC 100 %disability (PTSD) and then a separate independent SC disability - at 60% or greater-the VA must consider you for SMC at the "S" level in addition to your regular comp.

38 CFR 1114. Both must be SC first, then 38 1114 kicks in- (or it should)
