    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Radiology Report



Once you have a C&P exam I know you can request a copy of the examiners report.

However, can you also request a copy of the radiology report too.

The physician might say CT Scan was negative, but I have heard some X-Rays, CT Scans, etc not being read at all.

I wonder if they would release the actual radiology report.

If you sign up for a myhealthevet.gov get a premium account and the will all be in the blue button history, the exams and report will be

on there as long as it was done by the VA. You will have to go sign a release if you want actual films.

When you complete the VA form 10-5345 (Request for Medical Records) under "information requested," there is a section marked "other" where you can specify certain records that you are requesting. This is where you can request a copy of the radiology report and even a copy of the CT scan on disc.

If you believe the radiology report is incorrect, I would also request a copy of your actual CT and have an independent radiologist review it. I am not sure of the VA's policy on releasing copies of the actual radiological exams but most private radiologists have copies available for other doctors to review so possibly the VA can do the same. Last resort would be to have an independent CT scan by a private radiologist but CT scans are not cheap if you don't have private insurance.

Good luck to you.

The FOIA office ask for the date of the records that you want. What day was your CT MRI etc. Just be ready. CD's as well as records will come in the mail. I always use Mhealthevet for most records and request CD's for the rest.
