    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?”

NO exam verses 6 years and 4 doctors and it was a close call????????????? Well i did see the AJ suggested i be re-examed in one year i notice from everyone else this is a very short time period anyone have any insight on what will happen will i get a exam or a letter to fill out?

Robert,

Congradulations...............As far as a 1 year exam goes its a crap shoot, but I think you will be OK from here on out.

2 1/2 years .....good back payment, also auto medicare since it will be over your 2 year wait period.......TAKE IT.

Take the medicare, it is well worth it.......but that is my feelings as I will not go to the VA unless forced to do so, and medical I get fron private docs are sent to the VA for my C-file.

I also have BC/BS but it is secondary to medicare, either way there has never been a co-pay.

Robert;

Take Part B. If your retired military you don't have a choice. It's mandatory for TFL to cover you.

Don't let the VA kill you one night when you really sick.

As far as review. I just did mine. It was form with some q's. They just sent ltr saying I am good to go and will not contact my Dr's. Like anything has gotton better with age.

Go enjoy life! Keep seeing your Dr. Get some pain drugs (if pain). Keep busy.

Don't you love those ALJ Hearings.

I would take A & B but not D as long as you have other medical insurance for prescribtion drugs.

With A & B at least if something comes up that you can not get to the VA hospital, you would be covered under medicare.
