Do I Have To Reveal Non-relevant Medical Details?

Recommended Posts

Hello Vets,

My claim for VA benefits was effective May of 2004. I won my claim in August of 2009, retroed back to May of 2004. In Jan 2007 I was also diagnoised with Parkinson's Disease. My tremor is mild and on medication, it's very hard to tell. When I had my C&P exam since I wasn't being seen for Parkinson's I didn't mention it to him and he didn't notice. My question; Now that I'm going to the VA on Friday to enroll in the VA health system, should I mention it to them now? Will it cause any problem if I do or if I keep it to myself? I will have to continue to see a private neurologist for the Parkinson's and I'm sure he will be writting the medicine prescriptions.

Any thoughts would be appreciated,

Blackbird ]

blackbeard,

you didn't say what health issue you filed benefits for.

Also, if your going to a Dr, VA or private, why wouldn't you want to inform them of all your health problems?

Am I understanding you had parkinsons before your C&P but didn't tell the examiner? What was your reason for concealing it? Did it have nothing to do with your claimed issue or would it have messed up your claim?

Hey Allen,

My claimed problem was a back injury, service connected. The reason I didn't reveal the Parkinson's was that it happened was diagnoised several years after the back claim and I didn,t feel like it should any thing to do with my claim. I was also advised by an Elder at Hadit to keep it to myself since I wasn't seeking treatment or compensation for the disease.

I think that you should tell them. I tell my Docs all including an annual update on Meds I am taking. I have the VA and I have a private insurance Doc.

The VA compensation system and the VA medical treatment system are tow different beasts.

It is wise to give anyone treating you all pertinent medical information. In fact, records of a medical condition and treatment in your VA file can help when you deal with the compensation side of the VA.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
