Mental Health Notes

Rate this question



I was seeing the Clinical Social Worker, the Psychologist and the Psychiatrist at my local VA Clinic for almost 2 years. These visits were a result of my anxiety and depression after my heart attack. Both the Social Worker and the Psychologist indicated in their "Progress Notes" that my visits were related to: "Service Connected Condition". Diagnosis: Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Depression". Primary condition "Supraventicular Arrhythmias" 0%

After almost 2 years the Psychologist informed me that he had to change his wording to read "not service connected". I was then billed for my visits to him. Interesting that after all these visits someone told him to change my service connected visits to non service connected visits.

All 3 of these MH professionals are no longer working at this VA clinic.

Not sure what this means. Its very interesting when you go back through your SMR and MH notes what you find.

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

An issue NEVER meets the status of Service Connected, until it is done so,

thru VBA adjudication and a Rating Decision is promulgated.

Medical providers often state and write that XXX is service connected

but until we see it on a decision - it in not yet SC'd.

I would submit a request to have the VAMC treatment co-pays waived.

Carlie passed away in November 2015 she is missed.
