    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

Cue Medical Evidents

Question

I had a decision on a claim that went back to 2000.

The VA based there decision on 2 C&P from 2009 & 2010.

The medical records match from the year 2000 (LVL @ 48%) and the year 2011 (LVL @ 50%)

Should not there decision be based on the medical evidents in the year 2000 if they are making an award from the claim.

They awarded 100% based on the current year 2011 and only 10% for the retro year 2000. Seem wrong to me

Is there any reference on when they apply the evidents and would this be a CUE claim

Any help would be great

Thanks

Hi RDT,

Would like to help you but you haven't posted much for anyone to really understand.

Could you be a little more specific ?

I have attached the VA decision for review.

I would think that if you file a claim, it would be based on the medical evidents for that year. Nehmir Case.

Any help on how to proceed would be great.

I just think that the 48 % LVL in 2000,documented in there decision should rate 60% and not 10% . They based the 10% on a C&P from 2009 for the lease to pay out retro.

Thanks

Nod that decision right now. The Ejection fraction of 48 is a 60 percent issue as stated in the title 38 part 4.

That is what I call a lowball. You cannot cue it until you wait 1 year for the decision to be final.

Explain the regs to them very clearly and you will have no problem.

Hi RDT,,

From what I read it looks to me like you received a fair decision. Your METS level was just too high for you to receive more than a 10% rating. I had a 7.6 METS level and I was given the same thing, but they retroed it back to 2003.

I am no expert on this but there is an organization called NVLSP and they would take a look at your claim if you contact them and fill out their questionaire. They are good folks and very high powered lawyers. Maybe ask Berta or Carlie on this. I believe they do pro bono work for us vets (free of charge) so check them out.

Good Luck!

This is not a CUE scenario.

RDT-did you contact NVLSP when you filed this claim as suggested in our AO forum?

The decision might be correct but I suggest whether you had contact with them yet or not- contact NVLSP at their AO addy and ask them if they would review the decision.

Yes-these are pro bono lawyers and they won the Beverly Nehmer AO court case.

You have a Footnote one Nehmer claim.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
