Question

I am 100% IUE with service connected PTSD and HEP C. Medication side effects effected my ability to maintain employment; resulting in IUE.

I filed a claim for aid&attendance because of my inability to maintain personal care. Also. unable to perform unassisted personal tasks in the couumunity

The RO denied my claim. The rater stated that I choose not out because of anxiety and fear of the public. C & P exams from both mental and physical doctors

have evidence supporting my claim. The RO admits to having medical records from 2008-2010. The rater stated that I did no meet the criteria due to my rating

" you do not have a single service connected rated at 40%. I am 40/70

thanks for your support

JABBO - when did the VA deny you for A&A? If it hasn't been a year then it can't be CUE.

It can't be CUE until August 2011, one yr after the decision date. I would have filed a NOD stating a "grave procedural error" and requesting that the original rater correct their decision or the same but requesting a DRO hearing. As it stands, I see 3-5yrs before there is any kind of resolution, if there is any resolution. jmo

I had to prepare an A & A claim recently due to the new IHD regs regarding my deceased husband.

I followed the A & A regulations to the letter- remember not all of the criteria has to be met in the claim---

But I only made specific statements that warranted A & A that I could back up with (and I enclosed copies of) clinical med recs, day treatment records etc., and I did give a personal statement too as I was caretaker.

I also refered VA to my husband's SSA awards as to his A & A standing, his driver's license, and numerous other documents that supported the A & A yet were not part of his VA med recs.

I dont anticipate problems with the A & A claim but just in case-I found someone who is listed at Dr. Bash's site as an expert in Aid and Attendance claims.

I emailed him Saturday for some idea of what he charges for a A & A IMO,in case I need one, and what his expertise actually involves.

I will let you know when I hear from him.

You said . "Also. unable to perform unassisted personal tasks in the couumunity

That sounds like the HB award should have been considered (SMC S)

Can you scan, and attach (cover personal stuff) the actual Reasons and BAsis for denial?

Have you been diagnosed with agoraphobia?

It s not unusual for a PTSD vet to have agoraphobia.

    • 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.
