Erectile Dysfunction


I put in a FDC on 1/2/13 for ED secondary to my PTSD and medication given me over four. My VA doctor in urology confirmed this on 7/10/12 and posted on my progress notes at Tampa VA. MY question is what date do they use to retro my pay, is it 1/2/13 or 7/10/12????? I was approved 0% and awarded SMC-K at 100.00. I was told this by my VSO. On my FDC the only dates I used for claim was 1/2/13 because I thought they would automatically go back to that date. I had a C&P on 3/13/13 and doctor did confirm cause of ED medication. VA put me on these medications on 1/5/99. Can any one let me know if they will automatically go back to 1/5/99 or 7/10/12. ?????

They generally go back to the date you first filed the claim. On rare occasions they can go back further, like if there were notes in your medical records about ED problems earlier, but it almost never happens. jmo
