Examination For Housebound Or A And A

Recommended Posts

In my recent award for TDIU and SMC for loss of use of creative organ.........This statement was also noted: Examination for housebound status or permanent need for regular aid and attendance showed disabilities of Copd, cervical spine and lumbar spine spondylosis restrict activities. You use a walker for ambulation. OK copd and cervical spine are Not serviced connected. Va provider and social worker both claim need for aid and attendance and in fact had VA provided home care worker while wife was down with cervical problems. VA provided c/p exam on 11/19/12.. Vet required use of aid at all times to ambulate, ability to self feed: some difficulty: ability to dress and undress: some difficulty, ability to self bathe; marked difficulty, self groom some difficulty, toileting marked difficulty. Vet unable to walk without aid of another person. Circumstances vet can leave home: Medical care only.YES fuctional Impairments are permanent. During the examination the Veteran required help top take off and put socks back on, Wife had to help get his undershorts and jeans back on and buttoned.Can Veteran travel beyond current domicile? NO The aid and attendance was considered a new claim and they are still working on it and 2 more conditions. Should the senior RO have made a decision on this or will it follow its own course.

It should follow with a decision for A&A, although it might take a while yet.

ranger,

When you get back to us - look up at the top of your screen

and you should see a little envelope with a red #1

click on that and it will take you to your personal message section.

I have put a temporary password in there for you that you can change when

you want to.

Got the results back from this claim. Just as I figured, all denied. (no surprise).

VA form 21-2680 shows you are able to feed yourself, are not legally blind and do not require nursing home care. You cannot prepare your own meals. You require medication management as well as assistance with bathing and hygiene needs. You are able to ambulate with the assistance of a walker.

Entitlement to SMC based on aid and attendance/housebound is denied as the evidence does not show you are permanently bedridden or in need of regular A/A, and are not substantially confined to your house due to service connected disabilities. I am only 70% but have TDIU pay at 100%. I don't know if I am ready to mentally deal with them at this time to even to file a nod. This has been a terrible time for me as I have been physical sick since Christmas with non service connected problems. But, I still have plenty of time to file nod or re-consideration if I so decide in a few weeks.

    • 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.
