    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • 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

SUBJ: Training Guide for the readjudication of Claims for IschemicHeart Disease (IHD), Parkinson‟sDisease (PD), Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL) and other Chronic B-cell Leukemias, andother Diseases Under Nehmer


On October 13th, 2009, SecretaryShinseki announced his intent to establish presumptive service connection forIHD, PD, and HCL for Veterans who served in the Republic of Vietnam. This decision was based on the Instituteof Medicine‟s seventhbiennial update, "Veterans and Agent Orange: Committee to Review the Health Effects in Vietnam Veteransand Exposure to Herbicides." Under the court order of the U.S. District Court forthe Northern District of California (the "Court") in Nehmer v. U.S.Department of Veterans Affairs, 712 F.Supp. 1404, 1409 (N.D. Cal. 1989), VA must readjudicate previously deniedclaims for IHD, PD, or HCL filed by Nehmer class members (Vietnam Veterans and their survivors) and provideretroactive benefits pursuant to 38 C.F.R § 3.816. This requirement involves claims filed or denied fromSeptember 25, 1985, to the effective date of VA‟s final regulation establishing a presumptionof service connection for the disease claimed. Such claims may not be finally adjudicated until VA‟s regulation change at 38C.F.R. § 3.309(e) is final, which will add these three diseases to the list ofdiseases associated with herbicide exposure.
