Va Launches Development Of New Online Claims System

Question

Is there any reason this forum doesn't have a Facebook page?

http://www1.va.gov/opa/pressrel/pressrelease.cfm?id=1919

This is 10 years overdue, IMHO. If the IRS can automate, why can't we???

Yup, and 20 years from now, it will simply be 20 years overdue.

I have spent the last 8 months EIGHT MONTHS waiting. Waiting for the VA to provide me with printer access at the VA Medical Center in Dallas, WHERE I HAVE AN OFFICE PROVIDED BY THE VAMC!

If it takes more than EIGHT MONTHS for them to figure out how to hook up a printer to the VA PROVIDED DESKTOP COMPUTER..........theen how long to you think it'll take to TOTALLY "COMPUTERIZE" ANYTHING?

When I want to print anything, then I have to SNEAK-copy my work to........................ooooooops, I never said that........cancel that.......never happened.....

VA says:

" it represents a significant step towards meeting VA’s goal to “break the back of the claims backlog” and provide all Veterans with high quality decisions on their claims in no more than 125 days"

Engrish translation:

"The VA will have high quality ways to issue denials faster than ever."

I agree with Larry. We will not be seeing this system anytime soon. Something this complex will take a couple of years to develop and be bug-ridden forever afterwords.

"Engrish", really? Although I do believe that sometimes the VA does speak someother form of "Engrish" than I.

The VA will have high quality, electronic ways to issue denials, instead of the old rubber-stamp and black ink pad method. Now, that's KEWL, right?

Its a significant step in claims processing. Instead of having 1,000,000 claim backlog, we will have a 0 backlog and a 1.1 million backlog of appeals, which take about 8 times longer than claims.

LOL, the "Press Release" doesn't give a time line for the start up of the program. My guess is 2015 at the earliest. By then they will have spent 560 Million Bucks on it, it won't work and those 1 Million Vets in the back log will be dead. That's their solution.......

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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’.
    2. Knowledgable 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, 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.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

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

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
