    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

Berta

Question

In part

"A Veterans Benefits Administration
(VBA) management support team, sent
to assist with operations of the Oa
kland Veterans Service Center from
October through November 2012, found in
a file cabinet approximately
14,000 informal claims dating back to
the mid-1990s. VARO staff stated
they counted the documents and found 13,184 informal claims, of which
2,155 still required processing action.
VARO management tasked a special
project team to process
the 2,155 informal claims—an
effort that continued
until the team supervisor left the VARO in April 2014"

The FBI needs to look into organized crime aspects of why so many claims are getting denied. Some parties are evidently pressuring RO s into denying claims in order to funnel monies that are supposed to be paid to veterans as compensation, somewhere else. Follow the money and they will find some fats rats somewhere just gobbling down the cheese. I believe it goes way deeper that bonuses at the RO levels as the reason for the widespread denial of benefits and compensation and wrongful denial of healthcare thru deception are rampant. I think that money must be getting wrongfully and illegally earmarked for construction and technology contracts. Someone or a group of people must be pulling the strings and its been going on for a long time. Think about it.. UNIONS, CONTRACTS, CONSTRUCTION often = ORGANIZED CRIME. When you have people inside of the hospital that are doing the contracting, it is a conflict of interest. Folk can get really friendly and generous when millions of dollars in contracts are involved. That is why an outside firm, from outside our govt, needs to do a forensic audit of the spending inside the VA. every dollar accounted for., and report directly to the head of the FBI. If organized crime is found they should prosecute under the RICO laws. Find out who owns these contracting businesses and how they are politically connected .

Just my opinion.
