If VA Changes/Deletes things in ebenefit?What then?


Buck52

Question

  • Moderator

Couple questions.

If  veteran looks on ebenfits at his ''disabilities''...and makes copies ...and then the next day the VA or who ever the guilty one is    deleted this information?  like an old rating decision  and effective date...was deleted from ebenny's?  but the veteran has his copy.  and the veteran needs this information to get his EED Corrected.

How do you request VA to put this information back on the ebenny's site?. or who do you need to go see?

Another question?

What if the VA cancels a healthcare Appointment...and says the patient canceled it? when in all honesty the veteran never canceled any appointments and the things that is said at VA PCP Exam and it was not said but the Dr put it in his/her report...How would a Veteran go about getting this problem corrected...especially if it helps his claim/claims?

Most of the time there's going to be things said in the Dr's report that were never said but the Dr says things that are not true and never was mention to the Veteran as the Dr says it was  because things like this could be detrimental to the veterans claim, how would the veteran go about getting this corrected?

Anyone care to comment?

 

Thanks 

.............Buck

I had a similar situation regarding doctors notations. Worse of all it was near my C&P exam date. I contacted my facility and told the operator there was a discrepancy in my report and asked for a call back from the doctor. Unfortunately I never received one. But she did notate there was a discrepancy and notated exactly what it was. Not sure if raters or big wigs view that when they are reviewing things. 

 Hope that helps a little.

WELL i WONDER WHO THEY BELIEVE  THE VETERAN OR THE VA? its the veterans word against the VA..or the VA Doc, &who is who?

I was wondering how a veteran gets these type things corrected.

Amendment....but the Doc Needs to do that.

About the ebenny's question  is anybody's guess.

Is there a rating for the condition already or is it in processing? If it is still in processing I would contact ebenefits 1800# and see if there is a system error of some type. If it has already been completed and already receiving compensation I would contact the regional office and take it up with them. This may even be something a VSO could help with if there is paperwork involved.

 

Just my opinion. I'm sure there are more qualified people with more knowledge that could give a better course of action.

The rating decision has been decided in the veterans favor, however the veteran was paid from the time the decision was approved and not the date the claim was first started.

claim filed in 1998...decision was made 2003 to give the veteran a 50% rating the veteran should have recieve retro from 1998..but failed to submit NOD with in a year.

the disabilities in ebenny's say they effective date for 50% is 1998, veteran was not pain retro for the back pay  only one year.

The only thing  in my opinion the veteran can do is request a total review of that claim and produce records to prove it ( in c-file)

the dates  of the what VA has down in disabilities as 1998, the veteran was paid a year retro  adjusted to the 50% rate from 2003 back to 2002....his 50%adjusted rate should have went back to the year 1998

However  the Rater (DRO& Rating specialist) state in their 2003 decision that even though this disability was filed in 1998  the rate will start from the date veteran filed for increase...I disagree with that.

I must say this is my claim  and back then I never fully understood the NOD and the VA Law...but right is right  wrong is wrong.

Lots of veterans realize how the VA is and for those not familiar with the VA Claims process and not catch a glitch like this from the VA & find out years later the VA screwed them out of a heffty piece of change  the veteran should have the right to get this corrected...but since NO NOD was filled  IT  could be a eat it and forget it deal with the VA.

This is a very informative thread and I'm picking up some valuable tidbits of information.

I found myself being thankful that my work affords me the opportunity to have Adobe Professional. Because of this I am able to capture all my screen shots and convert them to PDFs. 

For thiose that can afford the $14 or so a month, it can pay itself back in situations such as this. I save any change to e-benefits and all my documents are scanned to PDF. It also helps organize and present claims in a consistent and clear format. And, it's very user friendly.

BTW, I have no affiliation to any software companies. I just thought I'd throw this out there.

    • A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective
      A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective

      This person is going to judge you. It’s their job, and that is why you are there. To be adjudicated fairly. How would you like to be remembered? A scuzzy stereotypical veteran? Or a troubled one who is doing the best they can?

      Do not talk about alcohol or drug-related issues. You are not there to be assessed for those problems. You are there to be evaluated for your psychiatric functioning as today relates to your service history. If the examiner asks about alcohol or drugs, politely remind them that you are not there for those issues if you’ve ever had them, but for how impaired you are in your daily functioning. It’s best to avoid even talking about them. Got a VA horror story? I can tell you a worse one. Don’t waste your time with how badly you believe you’ve been mistreated. The examiner only has a short time to figure out how impaired you are, and they need the facts, concise sentences, and not rambling rants that lead nowhere.

    • VA Math, Confusing, Right? Calculate Your Final Rating Percentage!
      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic 

      “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service-connected and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating.

      If you are looking for help taking care of him something like a home health aide that comes in during the week and helps with what he needs help with. For this I would contact your local VA hospital and ask to speak to the Social Worker, explain your situation, ask for help and how to proceed.

      If you are looking for additional compensation in the form of Special Monthly Compensation check out this video from CCK Law I think it will give you a good idea what it is and how to go about applying for it.

      For example there is a Special Monthly Compensation Rate for TBI try reading this article from The Veterans Law Blog on SMC T It is a subscription site but it allows you to view 3 articles for free a month.

      Special Monthly Compensation (SMC)

      I hope this helps.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    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.

    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. 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.
    3. 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?
      • 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.

    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
