    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?”

    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

Award Letter But Confusing Language?


artlouis

Question

Received my award letter 90% with explanations for each percent rating except for one.

Had my C & P exam back in January by MSLA,, a priviate clinc.

For peripheral artery disease (left & right) it says:

"The issue for compensation for peripheral disease, left lower extremity is deferred for

the following information: an addendum to the VA exam."

Anybody know it means?

Thanks

VA is asking the Doctor to give you another C & P exam or asking the doctor for some type of information needed to help them come to a particular rating before they make a decision for your peripheral condition. You may not need another C & P exam if the doctor can give the information without out seeing you.

What that means is that for peripheral disease claim, the c&p exam you had for that is being returned to the examiner for an addendum on something that needs clarified in the exam report and will be finalized upon return of that addendum. This is good because most raters just simply deny without the clarification.Deferred means they still have not made a decision but plan to at a later date, usally after the exam report is returned to the varo. You must also hold their feet to the fire as they sometimes forget about deferred issues. Give it about 30 days before initiating an inquiry on this. JMHO.

If you mean PAD ( peripheral arterial disease)

and already have been rated for PN (Peripheral Neuropathy)

there are two separate ratable conditions.

Defered is always better than denied....

Deferred usually is further development of a claim or osp (on site provider) opinion on what the examiner put down in the examination report. I have seen where they have deferred issues due to needing personnel records for issues like mental conditions, service treatment records for proof of treatment in service when a veteran has more than one periods of service. So a lot can play into why a deferral is needed. But like Berta said, its better than denied cause this means someone is doing their job correct by crossing every t and dotting every I. Good Luck....
