Ptsd Exam?

Question

Recommended Posts

HI,

Please remember I am not a service officer, just giving you my opinion of what I read.

Please forgive me if I missed something, but I think the report is very favorable to you.

Seems pretty clear cut to me.

doogie, First of all please look at the 2 pages you posted for possible personal information/like a name at the bottom of the pages of the left side. It is preferred one not have personal info. just the exam info. Secondly you have the diagnosis which is a plus. As far as how one rates the exam depends on the rater/region maybe even their case load that day etc. It is not a blanket shoe in for what one would think.

The GAF is a component used and I have seen in my region, vets get an average of 10-30% range with the one you posted, but with the other factors of the exam included. This is just my opinion of what I have seen/read it is by no means the norm at all. One can really not say what % one may receive except for the VARO rater evaluating your claim. I am a vet and do not claim to be anything more.

Remember if you feel the % was lower for your symptoms/continuing problems you can always appeal it. First lets get to the evaluation and determination of a grant and winning a % before we might get ahead.

Good luck to you on this journey, and are you using a VSO(veterans service officer)? Who is helping you with your claim? Also it is important to remember the VARO works by their time line, not ours. You may receive correspondence in a few weeks to months, or could be a year or longer. BE timely when sending your responses back to them.

The most important thing is to never give up and always have valid evidence to challenge with. :smile:

    • 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.
