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.
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.
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.
Post straightforward questions and then post background information.
Question 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.
Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
Question 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.
Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions.

National VA PD Consortium Network Referral List
The National VA Parkinson's Disease Consortium was established in 2003 as a means to broaden the impact of the Parkinson's Disease Research, Education and Clinical Centers (PADRECCs) and encourage modern Parkinson's disease care across the collective VA Healthcare System. Together, the PADRECCs and the Consortium Centers create a hub and spoke model of care, allowing effective and convenient services to all veterans, regardless of locality. Veterans who cannot access direct services at a PADRECC facility can receive specialized care at the closest Consortium Center in their region.
To Make an Appointment at a Consortium Center:
1.Locate the Consortium Center of greatest convenience to the veteran using the map and corresponding referral list below (You may click on the stars below for more information on the Consortium Center's VA Medical Center).
2.Complete an interfacility consult (specifying location of the Consortium Center and physician’s name) and forward to your local patient transfer office. If the Consortium Center is outside of your VA Network, contact your patient transfer office for further directions.
3.Ask the patient to contact the Consortium Center within 72 hours to obtain an appointment.
4.Assistance is available by contacting Jackie Lumford, Consortium Program Support Administrator, at 1-800-949-1001 x2749.
