Update On My Vaco Complaint

Rate this question

Question

VA Central just called me to say the Phila VA is getting an expedited medical opinion,for my AO IHD SMC accrued claim, and has expedited transfer of my c file which was STILL in Buffalo after IRIS and MS Kostic confirmed last year it was in Philadelphia.

I have not heard where my AO claims actually are yet.VACO didnt know for sure.

Per the Phila VSM they are in Phila.

This claim does not need another VA medical opinion.I told the VACO contact this information was absurd and a waste of time and taxpayer money because the medical evidence they have ( medical opinion from VACO in 1996, Peer Review,1995,med recs, autopsy, etc.confirms my husband's 6 years of malpracticed IHD,and I gave them detailed medical evidence that warrants the SMC rating he deserves as a posthumous award.

Last week I asked them to CUE themselves on the ridiculous AO decision I got last Monday and apparently they did that already .The decision was not based on any logic, rationale,knowledge of Basic VA 101,knowledge of the Nehmer training letter , or any pertinent medical evidence whatsoever

and the decision was clearly and unmistakably erroneous.

VACO was alarmed that I reported this recent fiasco to the IG already.

Why not. It is an abuse of power.

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

The IG might not even get involved in this at all Pete.

I dont care if they do or dont.

It is my responsibility as a claimant,who faced this crap multiple times in the past from VA,

to remove thumbs from butts.

Their damned piecemeal adjudication and multi[le duplications of attempting

to obtain additional - unneeded evidence, is just another waste of funds.

I hope the IG does come into play on it - and rips them from stem to sternum.

If intrest had to be paid - this wouldn't happen - - - - -

Or maybe not - after all - it doesn't seem to matter, how much interest we're paying China - lol.

I am sorry to write that it has become apparent to me that the confusion as to where your c file is may be a deliberate stall tactic meant to grind you down. I hope that I am wrong. I think is it important to ask VERY SPECIFIC questions that force a SPECIFIC ANSWER and create a PAPER TRAIL that holds people accountable.....

Otherwise I fear they are just blowing smoke and playing ping pong with us......

Berta, You actually got a phone call at home from VA Central Office, Washington D.C. OMGosh, they must know you by first name! I hope things get better and fast! BTW, Happy Holidays! I hope you get to spend some down time relaxing. Adora

Berta,

I'm so impressed with how you "took the bull by the horns". I can't wait to hear more updates.

Reading about how you handle things gives me hope. Thanks for the update!
