To help us determine your entitlement to the housebound allowance, send us a statement signed by you...r physician covering the results of any recent medical treatment or examination. The statement should contain the date of examination, your complaints, clinical findings and diagnoses. If you have not recently been examined or treated, inform us and we will schedule a VA examination for you.

By all means send them copies of any recent hospital or treatment records for your PTSD.

"To help us determine your entitlement to the housebound allowance, send us a statement signed by you...r physician covering the results of any recent medical treatment or examination.

Have you formally applied for TDIU?

They need medical evidence of your housebound status that is solely due to SC.

I suggest you read over the housebound regulations to see how you evidence will fit into them and I suggest you send them any medical evidence that supports HB status or ask a doctor to state what they need.

You could use the 21-4138 form as a cover letter for these records.

I think they must be considering you for TDIU because they requested HB info.

yes I am being considered for tdiu they put it in and yes I send in the form though I dont see it listed in the evidence. Our physicians said they cannot write letter anymore. I can ask my primary care to write a letter. I am not sure what to ask her to put on it, thats my issue.

Can you give me more guidence. I can go get a copy of the records from oct til now but i just dont know what else i need to do.

thnx

    • 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.

      The site is supported through ads and ad free subscriptions, we are also asking for any support you would like to send our way. You can give a $1 or more it all helps. Keep in mind though that it is NOT tax deductible and we are NOT a non profit. As the site grows so do the costs and ads and subscription do not always keep pace with the costs. Any help is appreciated, but not required.
