    employment 2.jpeg

    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. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

C&p Exam Ao Ihd

Question

As we all know the VA has put on hold any ruling/awards till the new Rules to handle the AO three new presumptive claims is finally posted in the Federal Registry, which probably will not occur till JUNE or later.....

However, they are accepting claims and today Saturday the C&P people called and I have a

AO IHD exam scheduled for this Tuesday 2Feb2010

This is good.

Then in 6 months they will have a pile of 200,000 claims waiting to be denied or awarded as they flip a coin.

Came back from the AO IHD C&P exam. was asked my MOS ? poked and prodded, seemed to not have read any of the 2 inches of medical records from My Cardiologist. I asked him if he read the two statement from my two private doctors, seemed indicate NO . They seem to be interested in if you can prove blockage, stints, and when and how often you have had any attacks, and heart pains in the recent time....

I left not feeling so sure, what they report will say.... I am blasting off a ROI end of week.

Bring copies of any Dr. Reports that state you actually have IHD, and that your disease has cause blockage.

I left the folder at home, bad me..

vperl,

Did a doctor or a nurse do the exam? It sounds like the one I had for IU.

Bill

Nurse Practitioner, with some good experience, he said, with heart health..

But seemed, either to be putting me at ill ease on purpose, or just not really totally sure he knew what he was doing.

Was not impressed, but I wait to see what happens.... i expect to have to appeal any decision that is not 100%

at this point in time....

me not like a C&P that really wastes everyones time.....

But, that is indeed the VA way.....

By the way, I sent the ROI off yesterday, will post the results of ROI when it gets back....

There are two types of request of Medical records... or Release of Information forms

http://www4.va.gov/vaforms/medical/pdf/vha-10-5345a-fill.pdf

one is for the veteran to request his own records.... put date of C&P exam and what the exam was for...

The second type of ROI forms is for releasing your records to any person , group, or what ever, you can even use this form as you personnel form to get your records, just fill the blocks out right...

http://www4.va.gov/vaforms/medical/pdf/vha-10-5345-fill.pdf

I figure it will be of no use....

Always get a ROI after your C&P exams.... wait three or so days then mail the baby takes 5 or so working days

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
