  • 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

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
