Got Answer From Bva



Hello Hadit,

Haven't posted lately but continue to read posts.

I received an answer from BVA on my six year old claim. Approved right knee arthritis due to left knee. Approved for GERD due to meds taken for arthritis (0%). Rating increased from 60% to 70%. Increase for lower back Spinal Stenosis with nerve root impengment, increase for left knee and TDIU were remanded to the AMC.

I received a call from DORN VA HOSPITAL, Columbia SC for a C&P. Was told to "Come on down". I live about 70 miles away but if they offer you a C&P the same day you take it, well, if you can. I couldn't beleive I got a C&P exam this soon, Two weeks after receipt of letter from the AMC.

By the way, my increase was back dated to FEB 2003 so I guess I should get a little change.

Thanks to the info here I've been able to work my own claim. Things should have progressed sooner but VARO Columbia sat on my first remand for about two years, but what can you do when we all know they don't follow their own rules and regs.

Lets keep up the fight and get what we deserve. LLEWELLYN

    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 – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
