Va Disability Comp: No Decision Yet

Question

Is there a way to make the VA prove that they have not gotten information from sources we have specified in our claim? I am using one of my former chiropractors as an information source from my VA Service Connected upgrade appeal. Right now I am at 10% and have applied for an upgrade. I used several sources, but the VA says they have not received information from the aforementioned chiropractor. The chiropractor, however, insists that the information in their files was sent. I was told by one of the claims reps at 1-800-827-1000 that the information that this chiropractor has "not sent" to the VA is the only thing holding up processing my case. In an effort to not anger the chiropractor anymore I have not asked them to send the VA Form again, which would be a third time. Is there anything else I can do? I have been trying to resolve this for months.

Thanks For the Help!!!

I'm working on something also. This is what i'm going to do to try to eliminate maybe this prob. i'm getting copies and delivering them to my local VA rep at the VA home near me they can then send it to where it needs to go, this process was allowed by the people at my regional VA office. Or ask for a person you can send it to certified, as far as proof they got it from your doc. not sure.

You could go check your c-file. He may have sent it and the VA could have misfiled it. You could also get a personal copy from your chiropractor and deliver it to the VA, yourself.

I suggest getting the Fax number to your RO and faxing it to them. The VA mail rooms at the RO's can be a little disturbing as stuff seems to get lost. It is amazing what a Mail Room clerk can lose. The IG busted their butts a few years ago when they were investigating Shreddergate.

    • 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.
