    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?”

    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

Ig Let Veterans Affairs Officials Alter Report To Absolve Agency In Phoenix Deaths

Notorious Kelly

Recommended Posts

Crucial language that the Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general could not “conclusively” prove that delays in care caused patient deaths at a Phoenix hospital was added to its final report after a draft version was sent to agency administrators for comment, the Washington Examiner has learned.

The "fix" has always been in! Until the DOJ goes after them using RICO laws, obstruction of justice laws, and criminal negligence laws, the SOBs (non gender specific acronym) will just continue their criminal enterprises. Many VA and VAOIG executives believe that laws, or even just the need for common decency and personal integrity, don't apply to them. And you know something; they seem to be right.

We need someone who has no connection to the VA to conduct an independent impartial investigation. Many of the non-veterans I come into contact with believe these problems have all just sprung up out of nowhere during the last several months.

Again; disgusting!

Sweeping it under the rug

Mark Flatten ,the reporter above, was just on FOX News about this report and it is at the Washington Examiner site above.My comment might not be there yet....

I was just finishing a letter to the FBI (stemming from Phoenix etc etc, )and right before I heard this news I had added:

"Regarding the recent VA OIG report, if VA -paid C & P doctors opined for the medical
basis of this report, I assure you that C & P doctors often prepare very deficient and speculative
reports for veterans and widow's claims, to deny the claims without considering all of the
medical evidence they have. MANY veterans and widows like me are forced to obtain costly
independent medical opinions in order to overcome deficient VA C & P exams.Cases at the
Board of Veterans Appeals in DC, available on line, prove that point."

This latest IG statement does not seem to have any medical rationale whatsoever...just more spin....
It does not absolve VA from anything......

I have already done some detailed inner investigating of the VA, with more to do and

I sure am very aware of the way the VA tries to hide things....and what evidence I needed to prove my position with the IG, the H VAC and the FBI....

I proved Syracuse tried to cover up the malpractice they did here at Bath VAMC when my husband died....for my FTCA case, so I sure am willing to do what it takes to prove the VA has covered up their real malpractice statistics.

Regardless of which federal agency gets involved, there will be some level of political influence involved in the final report, especially if the findings of the investigation may have an adverse or negative impact on the administration in power.

The agencies involved in the investigation of the VA are all headed by political appointees. This includes the VA, VA OIG, and DOJ (FBI). When the administration changes from one party to another, agency and department heads are usually replaced by the incoming president. It does not matter whether the administration is Republican or a Democrat, the political appointees are people who will do just about anything to show their loyalty and allegiance to the administration.

I worked for an agency in the Department of Justice for over 25 years and my direct supervisors during my last 16 years were people appointed to their position by the President. I worked for both Republican and Democrat appointees and regardless of the party in power, the primary concern of the political appointees was how our involvement in high profile cases or in matters generating media attention might hurt or help the administration.

I hope the whole truth comes out about the mistreatment of veterans but I am still skeptical that our politicians will keep this matter high on their priority list for much longer. It is up to all of us to make sure they do. Just my opinion.
