    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

Manipulation Of Scheduling... Per The Ig


Recommended Posts

"September 9, 2014 The top watchdog for the Veterans Affairs Department said Tuesday that it appears that the majority of the 93 VA facilities now under investigation were intentionally manipulating data, which could lead to a fresh round of drama for the embattled agency.

Richard Griffin, the acting VA inspector general, told members of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee that his staff believes that no manipulation occurred in about a fourth of the facilities under investigation, but "on the other three-fourths, we're pretty confident that it was knowingly and willingly happening, and we're pursuing those."

In part the article also states:
"Asked why the problem had become so widespread, Griffin told the committee, "Frankly, when something is going on for as many years—not everywhere—but at a number of the facilities, it almost becomes the accepted way of doing scheduling."


This systemic scheduling problem is caused by the same "accepted way" of handling and screwing up claims , faulty C & Ps, deliberately ignoring probative evidence, inappropriate medical care, and many other snafus that VA
has maintained ,as their Status Quo, for decades, victimizing us all.

At least Griffin gave some serious info to the committee, that does not put VA in a good light at all.

Oh heck David Petreaus would be a far better Secretary than me.....!!!!!!!

We need a kick ass like Chesty Puller or Stormin' Norman......but unfortunately those great military leaders are dead.

I intend to keep breathing down their throats on the issue I briefly discussed with Bob Walsh yesterday during our Blog radio show. Until they resolve it.

It has been taking up a lot of my time ,but just like every claim I ever had, once the miserable leg work was done,and the evidence collected,

all those claims needed to properly resolve them,

was a VARO employee who could read.

In my case, I am hoping hoochos further up are getting the points I made.

Two more secret lists....that the public and Congress has the right to know about.And every veteran who depends on VA for proper and adequate health care needs to know as well..

Some VAMC are standing up got a call last Sun for a Tue C@P and a Call today with information to schedule a fee basis consult I do know that our Senator has made A personal Visit to the Charleston S.C and Columbia S.C VAMC and Columbia VARO since the Sh-----T hit the fan. This is the type of leaders we need. Straight to the sorce for answers. I have regular conversations with his aide that handles VA issues and moved with him from when he was our Congressman was told he could not get answers in D.C so he went to the source again pro active members we need to put people like this in regardless of our political party lines Only this will get anything done. Even before it hit him and his staff were there for the Vet and his family.
