  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Help, I Will Call Tomorrow

Question

All,

I got a call yesterday that I had an appointment on the 16th for a checkup at the local VA clinic for my high blood pressure and to see my councilor.

Checked MyHealthyVet to verify just know and see that I had been scheduled for a C&P exam for a pending claim today at 10:30 am. 12 hours ago..

No mailing, no phone call, nothing. Was NOT on MyHealthyVet on Friday.

I know everyone here screams, DON'T MISS A C&P EXAM, but kind of hard to go when you don't know you have one.

Now, again on MyHealthyVet, it says "appointment kept" for the C&P exam today, that I did not know about. Hmmmm.

Do they have internal C&P exams when they have all the information, but need a doc to look and make a call? Without seeing the patient??

I will call tomorrow and see what the dealio is..

Thanks,

Hamslice

Let hope, and t might be that you C-file was sent for a review. That also counts as a C&P exam. Do however call and see what really happened.

Ok, made the call. It is called a "opinion clinic". This is where the doc pulls your record and takes a look at it and the patient does not attend. At the local VA clinic today, it showed that I was a no-show for yesterday C&P, however, it showed that I kept the appointment. The person I talked to at the C&P desk today, told me that that is a mistake and to call tomorrow after 10 am, as the doc was gone today, and that the no-show should be gone. Apparently, the doc has two fields he needs to update (fix) when doing a opinion clinic so the patient will not show a no-show. So I will check tomorrow. Should be fixed.

Anyway, I did get a letter today, saying I had a C&P yesterday. Gotta like that.

    • 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.
