Ihd & Nehmer

Question

I have always had my file and reviews handled at the Oakland VA Regional office. I just received a letter from the VA San Diego Regional office that they will be providing a special review in accordance with Nehmer VA.

Any idea what they would move my file from my main Regional office? Just curious.

Thanks

As I understand it, there were Nehmer centers chosen to help out the regional VA offices. Nehmer cases have to have a special rating review too, I think. Nothing to worry about. You will be hearing something soon, I'm sure.

Good luck.

Sounds like you were a Nehmer class or found to be a Nehmer class claim (previously denied for IHD). I have a friend who filed a year ago and their claim went from Texas to Seattle, Washington. My claim went from Texas to Minnesota, but as yet my claim has not been recognized as Nehmer. Nehmer claims are to have specialized reviews and adjudication. It is possible that the claims will be sent out of state or to a more specialized department. More agent orange,IHD,and Nehmer info can be found here at hadit. Others here will be able to answer and have more details. The Nehmer guidelines were helpful to me.

These responses are correct.

Due to the Nehmer Court Order the VA can be sanctioned for any major errors in the adjudication of the Nehmer claims.They are specialized teams who are trying to decide these claims correctly.

My AO claim originated at Buffalo VARO in Auig 2010 and then was sent to Nehmer Division at Philadelphia VARO.

I was told it has been ready to rate since April 2011 but have received no further word from them except request for a probate court document (I am an AO widow and they need proof of any AO widow's legal estate standing)

Also I received a few months ago, a letter confirming I am in the Nehmer Class Action.

Only AO claims that involved a past denial for what is now one of the 3 new presumptives are Nehmer claims.

NVLSP ( the lawyers who won the Nehmer Class Action) want to hear from any vet or widow who had a past AO claim denied and have filed again under the new presumptives.

Their contact info is in our AO forum.

They are pro bono lawyers and will review any AO Nehmer decisions for accuracy if the vet or widow has contacted them and filled out their questionnaire.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
