I Need Some Help!

Rate this question



I received some correspondence from the VA asking for evidence to support my claim for loss of a creative organ. I wanted to know if I was going about this correctly. Below are diagnoses from my VA medical record and medications prescribed to me from the VA. am I on the correct path in what I am about to send to them as evidence?

(ICD-9-CM 296.30)
Date/Time Entered: 01 Jan 2010
Problem: History of male erectile disorder
(ICD-9-CM V11.8)
Date/Time Entered: 01 Jan 2010
Problem: Priapism (ICD-9-CM 607.3) Date/Time Entered: 01 Jan 2010
Posttraumatic stress disorder (ICD-9-CM
Date/Time Entered: 01 Jan 2010
"Special monthly compensation may be paid for loss of use of a
creative organ, as a result of service-connected disability.
38 U.S.C.A. § 1114(k); 38 C.F.R. § 3.350(a). Although the
term "creative organ" is not defined in the law or
regulations, the Office of General Counsel has held that a
"creative organ," as used in 38 U.S.C.A. § 1114(k), refers
to a procreative, or reproductive, organ. VAOPGCPREC 2-00.
In addition, where a veteran has loss of erectile power from
service-connected causes, he is also entitled to special
monthly compensation for loss of use of a creative organ. VA
Adjudication Procedure Manual, M21-1, Part VI, 11.25
(Change 85, April 4, 2002); see 38 C.F.R. § 4.115b, Code
7522. Therefore, although not specifically identified as a
"creative organ" in 38 U.S.C.A. § 1114(k) or 38 C.F.R.
§ 3.350, other legal authority clearly establishes that the
penis is a creative organ, for purposes of entitlement to
special monthly compensation."
