C&p For Barretts Esophagus/ Bva Hearing


qrdgv2tebc

Question

Received call from OPC Clinic today, askinf if i ever had a C&P for my Barrett's esophagus claim which will be going before the BVA in OCT.. I told them that my claim has been in for three years, and i never had a C&P for Barrett's Esophagus. all the evidence i have on my Barrett's comes from my Fee-Base Gastro Doctors, all the endoscopies and biopcies diagnosis were by my Fee-base doctors approved by the VA. my claim is a secondary to my S/C gastritis/Gerd disease. I ask since the doctors were my fee-base doctors why would there be a need for a C&P, All my endoscopies show besides Barrett's, Gerd disease, Gastritis, Hiatal hernia, erosive esophagus.

Question: since this is a claim for secondary to Gastritis/Gerd disease, should i have a C&P?

I too filed a claim for Barrett's Esophagus back in Mar of 05. Too date I have not had a C&P for it either. I furnished my private Gastroenterologists diagnosis, endoscopy results, severity, and length of time he has been treating me for it. I have had at least 5 Endoscopies and get them every two years, sometimes every year. I have been on medications for it, Prevacid for 6 years and currently Aciphex (The Prevacid was killing me). No problems so far with the Aciphex.

I claimed service connection of the Barrett's onset to ulcers that occurred while in the Marine Corps over almopst 11 years. I have two medical entries and was treated for ulcers twice at different years which is in my SMRs that I furnished as the nexus.

My claim is at the rating board now and I was told I should have a decision within the next two weeks or so. It's been at the board since last week in June.

I have never received a VCAA or even acknowledgement of the Barrett's Esophagus claim as I have for the other conditions I claimed and also received C&Ps for.

Strange that no one ever gets a C&P for this condition. Has anyone here ever received compensation for Barrett's Esophagus?

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
