Question

Hello all,

I was scheduled two sets of appts for my exams. Due to some unfortunate events at the time, I was not able to make any and the va decided on my claim. They gave me 0% for two amputation on my fingers and a rating of 10% on my PTSD. Now I have proof of all and when it happen and my diagnosis by two separate dr.(one being in the va prior to exam)

Now I understand how I did not make my exams they came about my decision.

Now I went to go file a request for reconsideration and I noticed when I got home it was a NOD.

I need help now! Does the NOD make a difference to a RR.

I'm just tryng to get my exams again. I have proof of the trouble my family went thru that caused me to miss my exams, but the lady at the VA said they don't need it. What can I do to try and get some exams rescheduled again?! Thanks

Welcome to Hadit. I would write the VARO and ask if I could take the C&P and for them to reconsider when they have all the evidence.

The same thing happened to me, I failed to receive the appointment letter (probably threw the QTC letter out because of junk mail) and they denied my AO claim. I appealed by letter and they answered and set up a new QTC appointment. Don't be too concerned, you'll get through.

Send a letter to the RO stating that you are not appealing the decision at this time. However, you are requesting and will be available for a C&P exam. If you have medical evidence that the rating is incorrect or that you were low balled you can ask for reconsideration. Reconsideration must abe accompanied by medical evidence, otherwise it is consider an appeal.

    • 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.
