Really Frustrated Now


Sgt eve

Question

B) I'm not sure of any of you remember my post back a couple weeks ago but just to recap: Turned in claim Nov 05. Saw a QTC Dr. for 1 of my 5 "complaints" in April. Then I find out they requested an appointment for anxiety/depression in beginning in June. Well person handling this never followed through so VA Clinic or QTC never received ANYTHING about me and the person handeling my case has been out sick ever since then, beginning of June so my file has just been sitting there. Actually spoke to someone down there (Houston)that said they were going to talk to that persons supervisor and he would call me back but that was Friday and still nothing. I called and left a message today and no call back. What should I do? I turned in years of medical records to show my case is legit. so why is it taking soooooo long? Thanks in advance.

If you submitted your claim back in November of 2005, you're actually not doing too bad as far as time goes. Alot of times claims will take well over a year to complete due to the enormous backlog at the regional offices.

Sgt- are you saying they set you up for a C & P but you never got the appointment?

I agree with Vike that you are early in on all this-

But if they somehow got a C & P appointment screwed up- it could look like you did not show up-and that is always a negative for a vet with a claim-

not sure what happened here-from your post-

"Actually spoke to someone down there (Houston)that said they were going to talk to that persons supervisor and he would call me back but that was Friday "

I suggest you get ahold of whoever this is-again- and find out who that supervisor is-and contact them-

If that fails I suggest you go to the VA web site and under the Benefits menu look for the Inquery or Email section-and send your VARO an email- the VA directs these themselves-

it will take a day or maybe a few days to hear back from them.

Put your c file number in the email , your name and address and your phone number if you want (I dont put my phone number on these inqueries- I like documented hard copy responses from them)

  • 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.
