Section 1151



  • HadIt.com Elder


The VA dismissed my Section 1151 Claim because they said I already had an appeal in for SC for upper extremity peripheral nueropathy and that since the DRO granted SC for the PN my Section 1151 was dismissed. Now I see why the DRO granted the service connection so quickly. They had a plan. This sounds like BS to me. What do you think? My 1151 claim was for not diagnosing my DMII in a timely manner. I beleive I am getting screwed on this. My DMII was only granted from the date of the C&P exam.

John-are you still within the year to file a NOD on the 1151 claim?

That's good- you got DMII from Agent Orange at a C & P exam-yeah right

I would check my med records if I were you to see when your glucose readings were first recorded as abnormally high-it would be in your Blood Chemistry reports. And the Creatine readings as well as the cholestrol readings-did they ever give you a HB1AC test prior to the C & P?

Peripheral Neuropathy would be secondary to established DMII.

Maybe they tried to say you were at one point "pre -diabetic" but not fully diabetic ???

The idea of Pre diabetes is really a crock-either one has DMII or one hasn't.

Did they ever, in your med recs , say you were "at risk" for diabetes?

The Wikipedia definition of "risk" as a professional assessment considers that " risk " can cause future disability or harm.

Yes the VA said I war pre-diabetic and that I had nerve damage from AO. This was back in 2000 I believe on my AO exam. I am still within the year of my DRO decision. When I got SC for PN I just signed off on it because it did not mean any more money and I was fed up. The VA says I was granted full relief and the case is closed.

I would file a NOD john on the EED- for the diabetes- and state that your medical records reveal that the EED should be earier then the date they awarded you for it.

"The VA says I was granted full relief and the case is closed."

Regardless of what they said -I would still file the NOD.

The VA often makes statements that sound ominous and final-if the NOD time isn't up the vet can NOD what the VA said. Or, after that year, they can CUE it.

I have a CUE on two decisions in which they said the veteran (my husband) was "NOT eligible under any circumstance" for SMC. He sure was. I supported my cue with VA case law.

They say a lot that vets should argue with.

    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?”
