    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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

Yes I believe it is the same, It is filed under AO. which is a presumtive and can be filed on the Fast Track

As for the %, that will depend on how extensive and severe your diagnosis is.

I could be wrong, if I am somebody will jump in here and correct me.

Thanks for your service,

It is the same as Ischemic heart disease.

If you are in country RVN then it is a presumptive condition.

The Percentage and rtate depends on the severity. The lower your Mets or the lower your Ejection Fraction the higher the rating.

Here is the rating criteria.

7005 Arteriosclerotic heart disease (Coronary artery disease): With documented coronary artery disease resulting in: Chronic congestive heart failure, or; workload of 3 METs or less results in dyspnea, fatigue, angina, dizziness, or syncope, or; left ventricular dysfunction with an ejection fraction of less than 30 percent 100 More than one episode of acute congestive heart failure in the past year, or; workload of greater than 3 METs but not greater than 5 METs results in dyspnea, fatigue, angina, dizziness, or syncope, or; left ventricular dysfunction with an ejection fraction of 30 to 50 percent 60 Workload of greater than 5 METs but not greater than 7 METs results in dyspnea, fatigue, angina, dizziness, or syncope, or; evidence of cardiac hypertrophy or dilatation on electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, or X-ray 30 Workload of greater than 7 METs but not greater than 10 METs results in dyspnea, fatigue, angina, dizziness, or syncope, or; continuous medication required 10

Hello Buzz,

I would like to offer perhaps another situation. JBasser and T8R bring up the regs and from the PRESUMPTIVE regulations standpoint. These are suppose to help the Veteran with boots on the ground and if the accepted countries are there. You may also have another way and that is the DIRECT Exposure issue. It usually will require more medical on this subject and much environmental evidence. Preparing for a battle beyond the Regional Office level because it is not presumptive.

T8R, have you dealt with many claims from DIRECT exposure to AO involving IHD , Athero, CAD, from Agent Orange that is outside of all of the "accepted" VA countries/zones? Have you seen many AO claims for this succeed at the Regional Level and be rated and if not what about the remand process if BVA rules in favor but sends back to RO for rating? What are your thoughts on this? Thanks in advance. NEVER GIVE UP . God Bless, C.C.

I have only seen and worked ft McClellan. Never did see the end product on that one. Should have followed it. As for the othe parts appeals team sees those (remands and BVA). I know, i know not much help. Good luck with the claim. I can only supply regs and va info. This is all just my opinion and not others.
