%100 (not P And T)

Question

I recently got my Award for Meniere's at %100, I was previously %70 for hearing and other conditions. I am very happy with the award and they gave me housebound SMC. But the more I read through the letter the more worried I get that the letter specifically states that P and T was not awarded as the disease is likely to change?? Now haveing said that they have to know that there is no Cure for Meniere's and I have clearly shown that no fewer than 5 surgeries over the last eighteen months and there has been no improvement and am now bilateral. How may more evaluations should I be expecting before P%T?

Any Ideas would be helpful. Thankfully I currently have long term disability insurance but after that will definately need a way to keep my Wife covered for health care.

You need to prove the condition is static and there is no likelyhood for improvement. Go ahead and NOD the award.

Look through the records and you may find this term. Also look for the prognosis on your med records. If you find it, highlight it and add it to the NOD.

You can also get copies of the actual OR report as it is a play by play to what they did when the operated on you. I have found these reports to be of upmost importance when dealing with the VA.

With the P and T, your wifes insurance is taken care of with Champ VA.

Hang in there and best of luck to you.

Diz appeal the decision. Ask you VA Doc if they would mind putting in writing that you will not be cured.

Good Luck

I got TDIU with no Chapter 35. I appealed and within one year had P&T. I got another medical report to repeat the fact that my condition was unlikely to improve. The VA did not hear me the first time. The VA saves money by acting dumb regarding conditions that are static. They figure that many vets will just accept the denial of Chapter 35, so they deny it. It is just the VA trying to save a buck at your expense.
