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.?

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • 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.
