Question On My Bva Remand

Rate this question


bm6546

Question

Actually, I have a million and a half questions on my BVA remand. You almost have to be a lawyer to decipher this thing.

"When the medical evidence is inadequate, VA must supplement the record by seeking an advisory opinion or ordering another medical examination."

My question is...

1. what is an advisory opinion?

2. who performs the advisory opinion?

3. where is this performed?

4. is this good or bad for me?

5. if they order another medical examination, what does this entail?

If they send me back to Reno VA Hospital, it will probably be with the Nurse Practioner. She will see me coming and pretty much deny anything that I have to say. Lets just say....her and I don't see eye to eye. I have already had 2 C&P exams by her.

Well, that is 5 questions of the million I have for now.

Would it help if I scanned my BVA remand here at Hadit so I might be able to get a few more questions answered? That is if I can figure out how to scan the pages.

Again, thanks in advance,

Brian

I've waited this long and I'm not giving up....NEVER!!

if you want YOUR claim approved this is where paying for an IMO or an IME would come in handy you need a specialist to explain the why and how your medical issue was caused or aggravated by your military service and not by any other cause, if they keep sending you back to the same NP and getting the same opinion you will lose I ended up with 3 IMOs and 1 IME and by the time my cardiac claim got to BVA I had showed where their NP and general medical docs denying my cardiac problems were NOT caused by me service and my IMOs and IME showed that it was and mine were all from Board Certified Cardiac docs and one retired Army Colonel psychiatrist the BVA said it put the claim into relative equipose and thus due to the benefit of the doubt rule they granted my claim do you want to win your claim? Get a real doctor to write the advisory and give them a copy of it my claim took from Dec 2002 until June 2009 just keep your appeals alive and don't miss any of the dates at least contact them annually to inquire as to the status of your appeals if you don't they will let a year go by and then close the claim and then state you "abandoned it" do you have a VSO? If the issue is a lot of money you may want to consider getting a lawyer that handles VA case law from NOVA http://www.vetadvocates.org/ I had great results from them

If you can scan it in here - cover personal info like name - SSA / Claim #, Address, etc. . .

Testvet,

I am in the process of gathering my info to send to a company that finds the required Dr for an IMO. Berta has helped with a couple of sources. I need an IMO from a Cardiologist to make sure that I have an opinion in the field of my claim. I am prepared to pay the money for a proper IMO....can't really afford it but can't afford not to.

In answer to your question about my VSO helping me...my VSO is about as useless as t--s on a bull.

You also mentioned your IMO on your cardiac claim. Was this a local Cardiologist or did you find him on line?

My claim is almost 6 years ongoing now. At what point do you think I should contact an attorney and would it help me?

Thanks, Brian

Carlie,

I will go ahead and cover the personal info and see what happens. Probably won't be able to attempt the scan until tomorrow. The old brain is starting to wind down for the evening.

Thanks,

Brian
