    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.
     
     
    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Bwe Not Bbe But Have A Couple Of Questions?


Recommended Posts

I got my BWE today with a decision. I understand most of the ratings except the last 1. It states Issue/Contention: Entitlement to special monthly compensation based on loss of use of creative organ. The explanation says: Entitlement to special monthly compensation is warranted in this case because criteria regarding loss of use were met from March 17, 2014. However it does not say what creative organ or the percentage? If I am giving a SMC for LOU of a creative organ, shouldn't it show?

None of the dates are correct that they gave me. How do I dispute those? I have 1 contention that was deferred for VA examination. So that is probably why when I log on to E-Benefits it shows my claim is back to Gathering of evidence because now it waiting on the issue for diplopia exam?

The major issue/contention was my suprapubic catheter that apparently never was addressed. They upped my neurogenic bladder from 20% to 30% but failed to add the suprapubic catheter which should be rated as 100% under voiding dysfunction. As you see here: Title-38 Chap-1 Part-4 subpart-b

4.115b Ratings of the genitourinary system—diagnoses.

7516 Bladder, fistula of:
Rate as voiding dysfunction or urinary tract infection, whichever is predominant.
Postoperative, suprapubic cystotomy 100%

What is the best way to fix this one?

jefmil50,

According to the VA, creative organs would include procreative or reproductive organs (e.g.- men's testicles or women's ovaries)

Well I do not have that, but I did get a SC rating of 0% for ED so maybe that is where that last issue came from?

Yes your SMC is for the Reproductive Region. I too get 40% for dysfunction, and SMC K for loss of use of L Testicle due to Testicular Surgery, which I believe is like $154.
