    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

C& P Exams Why Do I Need Some Of The Tests They Want

Question

Hello

I am new to this Forum. I recently retired form active Duty in June 12. I submitted a quick claim ( not so quick) two of the conditions on the initial claim were for heart issues. Its now November and I just got scheduled for my C&P's first whats weird is I live 5 miles from a big VA facility but they are sending me to one thats 135 miles a way for the exam. the next is my heart condition has got much worse. in fact just 2 weeks ago i had an Echo, a TEE, and a cardiac Cath. the results are I am having open heart surgery to replace my mitral valve. my C&P exam is the day before surgery. they have me scheduled for an echo I told them about the recent tests and the surgery the next day and they still want to waste time to do the echo themselves. no wonder it takes so long to get for appointments they are wasting time.

Well overall i hope the C&P goes well and paperwork gets processed quickly I have been told i should get 100% for my 3 months of recovery.

Good luck with the surgery. Your life/health is much more important than the frustrating dealings with the VA. Take care...

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
