P And T For Depression And Prostatis


I am 100% Sc and I was awarded 50 Depression and 40% Prostatis along with many more ailments. Since I retired from the Army in Oct 2010 I have been put on Zoloft to control my Depression and I wear an Adult Diaper for my Prostate. What is the best route to take when filing for P and T for these two claims? I want to get the ball rolling next week at my local DAV and I want to make sure I have my ducks in order to make one shot one kill. Also how long does the process take to file for P and T and will I need to go through another C and P exam? I went to my first VA appt back in June and my doctor stated that she will see me back in one year. Thanks for the info...

An independent medical opinion on the P & T might be the best shot.

Although that can be costly- I mentioned to another vet here yesterday that it could be an excellent investment.

When VA awards P & T they award Chapter 35 to the dependents- and they paid for 10 to 12 thousand of my degree.

Also the CHAMPVA benefit ( Civilian Health and Medical Program of the VA) for dependents of a 100% P & T vet is wonderful!

BTW all- CHAMPVA pays 75% of cost of most brand name meds.

When I switched from a generic to a brand name, a woman from CHAMPVA actually had to call the pharmacy I deal with. They charged me around 68 bucks for a brand name (saying CHAMPVA would not pay for it)and they have about 53 bucks awaiting me as a refund.

It was the last med I ever took- I am now homeopathic=with my doctor''s approval as the side affects of that med were dehabilitating.

File a NOD on the denial of Chapter 35. That will start the ball rolling. Then get opinion that you are P&T. You need to be seeing your psychiatrist as often as possible to show that your condition is static.

    • 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:
