  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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 have had no dealings with him, but others have. I hope they can provide some advice for you to get him to respond.

Hey 63Charlie,

UPDATE: Last Friday, September 30th, I got a call from Alice Burns. She is working with Dr. Bash. Super nice lady. Anyway, after a rather long chat  about the IMO that I needed and about what Dr. Bash had been going thru, I received a draft of my IMO.  It needs a little more work, but it's stuff that I didn't include in my initial packet.

So, Dr. Bash is alive and well. And just like all of us needed a break to take care of family business. I will send your name ( if okay with you) to Alice.

To Everyone else.............I am sorry that I came here to gripe and moan about Dr. Bash. When he (Dr. Bash) told me in December that he could help me, I knew that he would be my last hope to get a IMO for my late husband. Jimmy's death was so sudden, and our primary doctor was afraid to help me. As a matter of fact, all of our doctors refused to write a IMO for me. Dr. Bash has  done what he said that he'd do. And I appreciate him.

Again thanks to HADIT and Dr. Bash.

Kathy M. Mixon

They are only grapevines Buck.....I think the discussion on all that had been closed here.

Kathy, I am so glad your situation worked out!

Unfortunately we can roll with some of the stuff here that is negative,as in posts here about Dr Bash yet sometimes the actual situation is far different then we know.

I learned that many years ago when many of us wrote to Sec. Principi for a claimant here who griped a lot and even told us he was dying.

I learned the claimant was absolutely full of crap, lying to us and even getting money from many of us members. We believe what we read here....but  Once in a while it is far from the truth.

I brought Dr Bash to our older radio shows years ago and mentioned him here for probably 15 years or more because what I saw at the BVA was that his IMOs were excellent and thorough and anyone who lost at BVA even due to his work, didnt have a  real nexus or any evidence that could bolster their claim.

I still think Craig Bash is the Best and as a widow too, his IMOs for me were superb.

BUCK52,

Dr. Bash's mother passed away at the end of July 2016. And as we all know death of a beloved family member is trying to say the least. And I would reckon that Dr. Bash needed time to grieve.  But, he is back working and I received my first draft on Monday, October 3rd. I am looking everything over as he instructed, and because I like to know everything, I am trying to read the references that he put in my IMO. I thought that I had just about every scrap written about burn pits, but he had more.

Right now, I'll have to say that I am very pleased with what he has written in his IMO for my late husband.

I was contacted on Friday, October 1st by a very nice lady named Alice Burns. She is working with Dr. Bash helping him to get caught up. Dr. Bash has been responding very quickly to me through his regular email address.

Dr. Bash is alive and is working again. Give him a chance to get caught up and be persistent. He will be in touch.

 

Thanks again to all on HADIT.

Kathy M. Mixon

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      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. Continue Reading
