Lopts of info here on Section 1151 claims.

No form, no time limit .... send them a letter, identifying the claim as filed under auspices of Section 1151 38 USC.

In the letter tell them what medical error they committed and then tell them of the resulting disability you incurred because of the error.
refer them to and attach copies of any probative evidence to back up your claim.

The best thing anyone can do who is filing 1151 and/or a Federal Tort claim (FTCA) is to get an IMO/IME first that agrees ,with a full medical rationale, that negligence/malpractice from VA has caused you additional disability.

This link contains a template based on my original Sec 1151 claim and from a vet's claim I wrote

My pending Section 1151 is there too somewhere.
