Pdrl Medical Discharge


ckcjcg

Question

I was found unfit through the MEB process. Before the PEB findings, the head physician found me fit and continue before he transferred to another state as civilian physician. However, when I saw another physician for a routine visit, he said that he'll do the NARSUM. Couple months ago from this writing, I am medically retired. I am O3E with over 21-years of combined service, and would like to know if I can appeal the decision.

I don't have any answers for you but I wanted to welcome you to Hadit ckcjcg. I'm sure you'll find a wealth of information here. Others may be able to help out with your specific situation.

If your % is not what you want yes you can. Then once out go to the VA and file for VA comp and go to the VA and or the base for your healthcare.

Thanks Gulfvet. I am already medically retired, and my VA claims has already been sent to Winston-Salem and pending status - gathering evidence.

I don't qualify because I am medically retired. However, since I have over 21-years combined service, I will qualify when I turned 60-years old. According to a DFAS Rep, it will be automatically done (CRDP) in the system, but will see. Thanks.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
