    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Question

When they send me the appointment paper's,VES gave me more paper's to fill out .Two weeks ago I went to a outside VES for blood test, xray and upper GI to check the status of my AO status with the PC, DMII, PN and IHD. I'm thinging that they would bring this up today when I saw the doctor at the Evaluation. When I got there, they made fill out a large amount of paper work . Which was the same ____ that I filled out before, and before, ETC , but more junk!! They did not even look at the paper work I fill out for the appointment.:angry: . Ok, thats ok? I remember ARMY! I guess we don't have carbon paper anymore, so this is there way to making copies :wacko: . Ok,, back to the subject. This test was joke, and a waste of good american money. Do they think American Veteran's are trying to waste tax payer money to play these game's. There I go again. Back to the story. They were very nice and treated me with honor, But such a waste!! The doctor found the same thing my private Doctor's found. I guess VA can delay my other disability for a time. Maybe it is faster, They say it increase the time by two months! In real time thats a year? :sad: Time is not on everybodies side! I love this country

Sorry for the extra paperwork but I wanted to make the statement that I have nothing but good things to say about VES. It is my personal opinion that the only reason my claims were adjudicated fairly were because they were VES contract physicians. VES has always done right by me and I would say to anyone who has a C & P scheduled with them to just relax. If you truly have a medical disability, VES will treat you right.

Well your proably right, and of course you are right. I'm a little mad at the whole system and how they hide this and all these problem's. They knew 20, 30 years ago and did they try to help. I don't trust them and never more!

I said that these doctor's were great, but redunant. I don't have time to play the Vietnam Game any more and they were hoping we would be dead by now!!!!! Thank you

The VA is made up of teaching hospitals that do research and of course they know a lot of things just due to the numbers that they do not inform Veterans about. They knew about diabetes and Agent Orange but made a lot of Veterans still prove a link. Sometimes I hate the bastards and their tactics to limit government exposure to legitimate claims from Veterans.

How many times were we told when we served that if anything happened Uncle Sam would take care of us. That was to make up for the poor pay, loss of our freedom and the crap duty assignments.

I am pretty sure that there are other reasons that Veterans have diabetes and I bet that the VA knows it for sure and yet we hear nothing.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
