    employment 2.jpeg

Iu Claim Awaiting Decision Approval W/o Scheduling Me A C&p For Iu


Question

8/1/2013 filed for an increase for PTSD on at 30% (overall SC 40%).

10/15/2013 C&P exam for increase - Examiner stated I was unable to be employed due to SC in his report and was very helpful to my case.

1/5/2014 approved increase for 70% PTSD with new diagnosis of MDD secondary (overall SC 80%). IU differed.

6/18/2014 ebenefits changed claim status from review of evidence to awaiting decision approval. Also a dependency claim from 3/13/2013 has changed to decision notification.

MY question is, is it likely that them never giving me a C&P for IU is positive or negetive for my claim? Checked AB8 and nothing has changed so I don't believe they have updated anything yet because I dont believe my dependency claim would have been denied.

Does anyone have any expericnce with a situation such as this? Does anyone have some insite or even a guess as to what my chances are of approval or denial? I know its case by case but I have never heard of them not scheduling a C&P to make a decision.

I agree w/Berta. As long as the last C&P is less than a year old, they often don't need one, especially if the TDIU issue was "deferred." jmo pr

Update- I cant thank you all enough for the help you have been to me and so many other veterans that are not experts regarding the claim for benefits process and the off the wall actions and messages the VA sometimes throws our way. This site has helped me more than anyone will know. That being said, I guess I got approved for IU yesterday 6/21/14 I have not received my BBE yet but my Ebenefits has my AB8 stating that I am now paid at 100% rate with my new payment amount W/dependents posted. So I guess sometimes it is a good thing when you are not scheduled for a C&P exam. One last question, where do I find a list or document stating what my "new privledges or benefits" are exactly now that I am IU? Once again thank you everyone for all of your support and info.

      I submitted a follow on claim four years after my initial claim for worsening conditions.  I got a notification (accidentally) from QTM to schedule two C&P exams about 30 miles in opposite directions.  I live in NYC.  Being an 8D, I checked out the doctors.  For PTSD, I was assigned a child psychologist.  For my back and ankles, I was assigned a nurse practitioner with no specialized experience in osteopathic or neurologic disorders.  I cancelled all the appointments and call the VA.  I asked to have my C&P exams conducted only at a VA facility near me.  Chad, the nice VA guy said he would change my preference but it would take longer to get my C&P exam.  I am at 90% and want professionals in the fields for which I am being prodded.  Was this a good or bad move?  Thanks to all of you and mostly T-Bird.

      Hello,
      I am currently rated at 70% for PTSD and have a gambling addiction due to my anxiety and depression and gambling numbs my emotions but is having a heavy toll on my family and life. 

      I have blocked myself at casinos but online casinos are very easy to access  
      I want to stop gambling and wanted to see if the VA offers this type of support?
      Also, does the VA give ratings on gambling addiction?  I really want to stop but am so depressed. 
       
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Hey all. Hoping you guys can help me out with what to expect.
      In 2010 while I was active duty I went to medical over what I thought was a potential hernia. They did an ultrasound and felt around but told me they didn't see anything and that if it continued to hurt come back. I got my honorable in January of 2011.
      A couple months ago, the pain occasionally still persisted so I filed a claim for a hernia/groin condition and they scheduled me within a few weeks. I just went to my appointment and the Dr. asked me if I had the hernia taken care of yet. I told him that I was never diagnosed with a hernia which is why I also choose "groin condition" on the drop down menu. He help up a paper from my file and said that back in 2010 I was diagnosed with a inguinal hernia and that It says that I never made an appointment to meet with a surgeon. I told him that wasn't the way that I remember the scenario going, I believe I was told they found nothing and to come back if it still consisted or got worse. So we spoke for a few moments and he said that he's going to put that it is service connected, as I WAS diagnosed while I was still active duty. He also said since it's considered elective surgery if I wanted to have it taken care of I would need to talk to my private doctor.
      Has anybody had any experience in how this would be rated? He told me that it is service connected but he wasn't sure how the rating would go.
      I'm currently at 30% disability. I also recently received my C-file so I put it in my computer and found the page the doctor referenced and yes, it does say that I was diagnosed back in 2010.

      I am prior Active Service, and completed the rest on my 20yrs in the Guard. like me, I never went to the doctor however prior to retirement I was put on tittle 32 order (single days) active orders. On these single days of active duty, I was diagnosed with asthma, and sleep apnea. is this enough to be considered "in service"... the VA so is technical.  PLEASE HELP

      Hi, another one for you here. Denial of entitlement to an evaluation in excess of 0 percent for migraine headaches, Jan 2020. Reason for denial by De Novo review as follows: "We have reviewed the evidence and found it does not support you experience prostrating attacks that would warrant an evaluation in excess of 0 percent. While your testimony is credible, the probative evidence does not show your reported symptoms cause extreme exhaustion, powerlessness, debilitation or incapacitation with substantial inability to engage in ordinary activities, or result in substantial work impairment."
      With that, I submitted new material evidence Nov 2020 by rehabilitation hospital M.D. who reported I have 5-7 headaches a week that require me to lay down for over an hour and take medication. He also noted aura and vertigo and my headaches where hard to control. In my supplemental statement of case, I requested them to review my ER visit for Migraine and the following day I presented as a walk in to Primary Care because it came back. I also noted in the original C&P exam in which the examiner stated they were not prostrating, but he also mentioned that I have weekly headaches where I have to lie on the ground for an hour or two affecting my work. All notes, ER visit 2016, C&P exam dated 2018 and new material evidence dated 2019 provides consistent periods of prostrating events and asked them to review as such. I also provided evidenced-based clinical literature showing productivity and impairment, and financial impact due to migraine but also requested VA to consider whether the migraines where at least capable of producing severe economic inadaptability and not just actually produces as the court has held they need to assess both. 
      With that, just as of today, I get a call from LHI stating they need to schedule me a C&P exam for headaches. However, the last exam was just done 2018. Why would they do this and what is my course of action? Thank you taking the time to help!

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
