    employment 2.jpeg

    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

I just never knew it could be this bad....

Question

March 2015, i filled out intent to submit quick claim

August 2015 I submitted claim with 9 contentions,  supplying dbqs and imes with each

March 2016 my claim was closed with all 9 contentions not awarded

I was then told that I had been scheduled for 5 c@p exams, which I never attended.

 

Ofcourse I was never notified of these exams prior to my claim closing!

I went through all the hoops and told them how I hadnt been notified of my c@p exams ect.

 

I then got my Dr to right new IMEs directly combatting what the Va wrote in the denial of my 9 contentions.

 

Low and behold, 2 months later the VA reopens the claim that closed in march with an estimated completion date of October 2016.

 

On May 28 just a few days after they reopened this claim, I submitted my Drs new imes via electronically on ebenifits

 

To my surprise ebenifits said this new claim was pending a decision!!!???

 

I submitted a query to Iris on May 28 to ensure that my evidence is considered before the claim closes

 

On June 1st I hand delivered the same new imes from my doctor to the Va and also wrote a statement saying I wanted this evidence reviewed as part of my claim prior to my claim closing.

Both were time stamped showing June 1st

 

Low and behold...I go on ebenifits today and my claim is closeno c@ps or anything...

 

So tired of this crap...

Got the bbe in the mail

 

All 9 contentions denied.

 

No options left but to appeal.  That will take years.

Damn Im mad...all this because I missed c@p exams I was never notified about

Most of us had to appeal to get benefits, many of us multiple times.

killemall,

I feel your pain, I spent 2 years getting one of the most grievous of my contentions SCd from my EAS.  I went to VA so much that my job was in jeopardy.  It took the dr retiring before I got any relief on that one.

Even now, 17 years past that point, I have to deal with a claim where the examiner ignored the basis for the exam, which was then denied(of course!).

    • 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.
