    • How to get your questions answered...


      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.

Folks:

 

I got delayed and was behind to try and get my IMO/IMEs from Dr. Ellis and my one year make is fast approaching. Frankly, My 8 month request for my C File is till nowhere to be seen, and I doubt I will see it for my NOD in June? My wife is giving me a hell of a time about spending the money to go to Oklahoma and I've tried to explain how short sighted thast is. I'm at 90% and there's a big difference from 90% and 100% I've tried to tell her. Who knows maybe I have enough information to get ae bump up at a DRO Review but I know the IMO/IME is the best way to go. If I had the actual  QTC CP Exams via my C-File, I'm certain that if  I can challenge aspects of them that would result in and increase. Like most others,  I was low-balled on several contentions and may be able to push it over the top when I provide more evidence?

 

Godspeed...

Rootbeer22,

Wish you all the best on getting the IMO/IME you need to finish this battle off.

In reference to the C-File request, I had waited well over a year and hadn't heard anything out of the Houston VARO, so after months of call and IRIS requests, I used the nuclear option and went with a Presidential inquiry.  I sent a simple request for the C-File, giving a breakdown of my circumstances and wait time, and within about a month, I received a hardcopy of my C-File from the Houston VARO.  The cover sheet was even filled out by hand.

I'm thinking that this is what put a rush on it.  If you are running out of time, might be a worthwhile shot.  Good luck!

rootbeer, if you have a VSO, you can request a copy of your QTC C&P exam results from them.  As long as they have made a decision, they can go into their virtualVA system and just print them out.  I have gotten copies of everyone of mine and my wifes exams this way.

Good luck!

I am considering using Clifford Vocational....does anyone have an actual opinion that they have done that you can redact personal information and post.  Would like to see an example of their work.

Remember you get what you pay for. In seeking an IME it would suit you better if you got an opinion from a Specialist that is an Expert on your condition i.e. Heart = Cardiologist, Feet = Podiatrist and so on. Furthermore why would you need an exam for a current condition and current meaning "At the time of you filing your claim" and NOT during an office visit? In that case all you should have to do is get a copy of your Medical Records and send it to the Doctor for him to review, assess and formulate a well written IME. 

Some of you may ask why NOT get a current exam and the answer is suppose you go to OKC and your condition has improved? I don't know anything about this Dr. Ellis, but the V.A. isn't stupid and sooner or later a Veteran who does not have a track record of seeing a Dr. for a condition will try and use a thinly pieced together IME via a single office visit in OKC and the house of cards will fall.

Good Luck and Semper Fi.
