Ao Dmii Vets


AO DMII vets who developed CAD or heart disease before they developed DMII should now be Nehmern class members. The VA denied many Heart claims for that reason. Now the AO Presumptives for IHD may open the door for a re-open with an Effective date of the original claim if it falls within Nehmer Criteria or to the date the Date of the Nehmer decision.

YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new AO presumptives have truly opened a can of worms for VA as well as MUCH retro potential for vets and their widows.

Some vets should be awarded retro for SMC too under the new AO regs.

Widows,widowers as well could be awarded for SMC as an accrued benefit.(the basis of my claim)

AO disabilities for AO widows or widowers under Nehmer provide for ALL accrued money that was owed the vet under the Nehmer court order and stipulation fgor any AO disability.

If a vet had say a 60 % or greater rating for a SC but non AO condition and then gets 100% for IHD-this kicks in SMC or vice versa.TDIU for non AO condition then 60 % or greater for IHD,HCB,or Parkinsons kicks in retro SMC.

I think VA's cost estimates in the Federal Register failed to consider all potential ways that retro might have to be paid.

That's right because the VA used to say that if you were DX'ed with a heart problem and then six months later that you had AO DMII then your heart could not possibly be secondary to the DMII. You know this was just BS. I am sure the VA is not advertising the fact some may be entitled to SMC. You have to drag it out of them.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
