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.

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

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

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
