      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      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’.


      Knowledgable 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.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, 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 to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?


      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?



      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?

      I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • Exams that were being sent strictly to contractors before, due to VAMCs not being open, are starting to be routed back to VAMCs. This is going forward from last Friday- not sure if prior scheduled exams will be re-created for VAMC vs vendor.

E-Bennies Question

Question

Hey guys & gals...A couple of questions. I submitted an FDC claim for sleep apnea (my SMRs with military diagnosis and surgery to have my tonsils out to try and alleviate the sleep apnea with acknowledgement of the records by Buffalo VARO from 2012, a DBQ, private physician records, my polysomnograph w/ CPAP, and a medical opinion from my doc using the NEXUS format with more likely than not verbage for the apnea but she also put on there my high blood pressure is also caused by the apnea...did not put in a claim for it) back in October to the Buffalo VARO. My claim stayed in under review until about 2 weeks ago when it automatically jumped to Preparation for Decision. Is it normal for a claim to jump like that and how long does it normally stay at that phase? Also I had put in a dependency claim back in October with it, and was wondering if that will delay the decision on the sleep apnea claim until thats approved? Any information or knowledge would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all for your service.

NemosNavy,

It is not unusual for the status of your claim on Ebenefits to jump back and forth. There are different reasons this happens. As to why yours did, only the VA knows. Since your claim is in the "preparation for decision" status, you should keep a check on your "Benefit Summary Letter" under "Downloadable VA Letters" on ebenefits. Any change in your rating will usually be reflected here before you receive your official notice from the VA.

Good luck to you and thank you for your service.

Georgiapapa.

I've had multiple claims (including a dependency claim) going through at one time, and I found that they would usually wait for the claims to finish at the same time. That was my experience with that. I'm currently waiting on a claim that has been jumping back and forth for a little while. It's likely to make a big jump if they have done something with it. Any movement is good news with the VA! :)

good luck!

Thanks for the replies. I'll definitely check the "Benefit Summary Letter" georgia papa. Asteketee, I was wondering if the dependent claim could be the hold up and they were waiting on that to clear. I just thought it was strange to see movement so early, when I see others having to wait so long.
