  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Requested C&p Results...

Question

We received my husbands C&P results today from the VA and we are very perplexed as to the examiner's diagnosis.

The GAF was 65, she goes on to state he failed to "endorse sufficient hyperarousal symptoms to meet DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for PTSD. Yet on Criterion D of increased arousal.

Difficulty falling or staying asleep (X)

Irritability or outbursts of anger (X)

Difficulty concentrating (X)

Hypervigilance (X)

May be pre-military, military, or post military.

Does the veteran have a diagnosis of PTSD that conforms to DSM-IV criteria basone on today's evaluation?

NO

Yet he does in fact have a diagnosis of PTSD through VA mental health clinic.

We haven't received out letter from RO as of yet, it is still in the Decision Phase.

It will be very interesting to see how this goes.

Stay tuned for more Looney Tunes.

Thanks for your service,

Are you positive that the VARO has gotten copies of the following ?

"Yet he does in fact have a diagnosis of PTSD through VA mental health clinic."

The VBA decision maker is supposed to factor in ALL the evidence of record and

the above sure needs to be there.

Do you have a rep you can go see?

Carlie,

Yes we have a rep in Indianapolis which is about 1 1/2 hr. drive. I had messaged him several wks. ago (can't get him by phone) and ask him to inquire of the claim. His reply was, "Not sure what the hold up is but, it's your PTSD claim". Oh really!!!

It said in the C&P results that his C-file was on hand, the documentation of his PTSD from VA MH clinic would had to been in there for her to know he did has a diagnosis of PTSD, (I assume)???

We are awaiting a decision from Indy RO. on this claim. On Ebennes it did say they, "need additional time

to review the claim" Not sure if that is a stall tactic of there's, I'm hoping they see the inconsistencies of her report and the VA pysch.

Thanks so much for your help!

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
