Buck, When you go to the BLUE Button Download, are you specifying Treatment Notes?

My Secure Msgs are always posted within 2 days and the Dr reply usually the same day.

Have you been able to find any of your Secure Msgs in your MHV Med file? You have received Secure Msgs back from whom ever you sent the original Secure Msg to, right?

Might be time to check with the VMC Med Record Dept.

After about 12 or so months, your Secure Msgs are removed from the Secure Msg site but they remain forever in your VMC Med File.

Well I go to the blue button and clink on Secure Messages  and then open secure messages , I can write email to my PCP and she writes me back  we have did this back and forth now over year.

Ok I have all those Messages  in there &  in sent message and reply's  but there not any in my Notes? nada nada

Just Dr's Notes is all,  from my Dr's & speciality clinics

I may need to go see the VMC and see why? I can't get things off secure messages  from the Notes? its easier to just  get it off the Notes  and make copy's.  (if they were in there)

I was not sure Secure Messages  would be in Myhealtyvet Notes??...why is it called ''Secure Message''?

Secure Msg is the greatest thing since sliced bread. No need for an actual appointment, immediate E contact with any of your VMC Clinicians and it's secure. Every Secure Msg you send to any Clinician, shows up on the VMC Daily "SMsg" log, not the Msg itself. The Clinicians "SMsg" back to you, is also logged.

The other Vets I have contact with at the Det VMC, all indicate their "SM's" and their Clinician responses all appear within a couple days, on their respective MHV Med Records.

Buck, how about sending an SMsg to the Clinician you last contacted via SMsg, and ask why copies of yours and their SMsg are not posted in your Med Records.

Yeah I could do that, but first I am going to check out the  'help button''...or contact myhealthyvet problem solver.  

if I can print off the messaged  then I don't care if its in my healthyvey notes..as long a sI have copy's of what I need, the messages will be deleted within a year.

The notes are deleted within 3 years I believe?(not sure) but I can  always go to FIOA Desk at VMC and get copy's I suppose?

 looks like to me if I don't have those secure messages in myhealthyvet Notes  they won't be at the VMC FIOA Desk?

either way  Yeah I need to see why the secure messages in not in my Notes.?

    • 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.
