Question

Hi Lamont - The VA will only rate one Mental Health disorder. So for bi polar and depression and anxiety they all get tied into one. here is a link to help you out

http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=163a15d40f597c978f4517879efb3511&rgn=div8&view=text&node=38:1.0.1.1.5.2.111.73&idno=38

It will take you to a site for rating to see what percentage you fall in.

Also, it could be that the other things you claimed (depending on what they are) may not have been found ion the service treatment records or in medical records within a year of discharge. Unless we have proof of the condition, be it in your service records or some kind of medical documentation showing u developed a condition within a year of discharge, we ordinarily don't schedule an exam. Another reason could be that you will be scheduled for other exams but those were the only docs available for that day. For instance, some VAMCs don't have enough psychiatrists on hand, so the mental exam can be filed way before or after you get the notification for the other physical exams.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
