    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

Had Tele-Cast With Va Neurologist

Question

I'M APPEALING MY PARKINSON'S EFFECTIVE DATE AND HAD A TELE-CAST INTERVIEW WITH PARKINSON'S SPECIALIST AT RICHMOND. VIRGINIA. HE ASK ME A BUNCH OF QUESTIONS AND HAD ME TO DO SEVERAL PHYSICAL THINGS AND HE TOLD ME THAT I HAVE HAD PARKINSON'S FOR AT LEAST FIFTEEN YEARS. I ORIGINAL FILED FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISABILITIES IN 2002, WITH CLASSICAL PARKINSON'S SYMPTOMS. I DIDN'T MENTION THE WORD PARKINSON,S IN 2002. THE VA APPROVED ME FOR PARKINSON'S WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF 4-15-2011, SAYING I WAS NOT DIAGNOSED WITH PARKINSON,S UNTIL APRIL 2011. WHAT I WAS WONDERING, WITH THE VA SPECIALIST IN RICHMOND SAYING THAT I'VE HAD PARKINSON'S FOR AT LEAST FIFTEEN YEARS, COULD THIS BE CONSIDERED AS A DIAGNOSES.

GOD BLESS

Was this an IMO? Normally, you don't get SC'ed for something until you claim it. What did VA rate you in 2002 and for what?

To me the next thing to do is to get a copy of the VA specialist's diagnosis/notes, etc.

If the symptoms were present and listed earlier than you were given an EDD, and there is reason to believe the VA made a legal error,

you have a chance. Collect all the information you can get, and see a VA claims lawyer.

If the VA had the medical information, failed to diagnose, and that caused you harm, it's possible (not necessairly probable)

that you might be able to get something done.

I agree with chuck75 and john what were rated for in 2002? It could be that you can make them CUE themselves for misdiagnosis in 2002 especially if the neuro you just saw said you've had it for at least 15 years. JMO

A new diagnosis is not CUE. However, a Vet is not a doctor and cannot make decisions medical in nature (Espiritu)

JOHN999, CHUCK 75 AND BOOMER2

IT WAS NOT AN IMO. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY CODED ME FOR AND I GUESS MY RATE WAS 0%. MY CLAIM WAS FOR NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS AND PARKINSON'S IS A NEUROLOGICAL DISEASE. AS A LAY PERSON I DIDN'T KNOW I HAD PARKINSON'S. NEHMER SAYS IF IT CAN BE CONSTRUED AS THE SAME DISEASE, THAT I SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED RETROACTIVE PAY BACK TO 2002. I WROTE VA A LETTER ASKING FOR ALL OF THE INFORMATION ON MY 2002 CLAIM AND ALL THEY SENT ME WAS A COPY OF MY CLAIM. I'VE GOT A FEELING THAT THEY DIDN'T CODE ME FOR ANYTHING. HOW DO I GET A COPY OF THE VA SPECIALISTS NOTES, HE IS IN RICHMOND VA, AT ONE OF VA'S FIVE PARKINSON'S NATIONAL SITES AND I,M IN WEST VIRGINIA. THANK YOU ALL FOR RESPONDING TO MY POST

GOD BLESS

    • 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.
