Should I file a NOD for denied Hypertension claim?

Question

Denied S/C for Hypertension contention. BBE states "hypertension is denied since this condition neither occurred in nor was caused by service". Also gives the presumptive basis jargon.

While serving as a traditional guardsman I was diagnosed with HTN and prescribed Amlodopine. Two years later while on active duty my B/P went up to 170/100. I was seen by my private physician and was prescribed Lisinopril to manage my blood pressure. The date on the treatment record is during my AD time.

Both meds are listed on my 2766 in My SMR.

Could this be service connected being that the condition worsened while on active duty?

If you have "Compelling New & Material Evidence," that supports you position or think you'll be able to obtain Evidence that has not been considered, file the NOD.

Has your VSO-Rep filed for the VA "Official Reconsideration" of the recent Denial based on the Existing Evidence in your C-File?

I haven't seen any success stories from the "Reconsideration Request," but you never know, worth a shot and better than doing nothing. Has no effect on your NOD filing Date Requirements.

Keep in mind, with a NOD DRO Review (Faster than BVA Hearing) or an actual DRO Hearing ( a little faster than a BVA Hearing), you MUST have and supply to your RO, New & Material Evidence that was not available to the original Rater. Lacking the "New Evidence," guarantees a DRO Administrative Denial.  BVA Hearings, the "Traditional Appeal Route," really don't require N & M Evidence.

12 months from your Denial Letter Date, is your Drop Dead Date for filing you NOD. Don't let your Claim DIR.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
