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.?

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
