    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

Question

Is spending $100 a year worth it to join the Vet's Law Blog Premium service?  I may be filing a OSA claim and I am going to need plenty of help.  I lost my long time psychologist to sickness and old age.   I need all the help I can get to go forward  these days.  I am running as fast as I can just to stay in one place.

You have used Dr Ellis from Okla City.??

How did your outcome turn out?

Usually a VA Dr won't write a Nexus because they can be fired for doing it.  As of 2010 the VA came out with special EMPLOYMENT RULES that prohibits a VA Dr to write these.

This Must be why they are very reluctant or telling us no.

Buck,

Sorry didn't see this...

I have processed 3 claims this year since apri, moved myself from 10% to 30%, then from 30% to 70%, and now from 70% to 90% (as of last week).  Dr Ellis's note was a big help especially with my knees and feet.

I have tips if you are gonna go see him.

I think this belongs in the DIC 38/3.22 Area?   it don't apply to you, it only applies after your death  as I understand your statment.

 this is referring to veteran serviors,Ms Berta would know she has a lot more knowledge on this  than I do.

this link may help?

Thank you syne7

I bet Dr Ellis is great help..I don't think I will need him now I have enough evidence on my own, my only question is what the raters use as ''credibility''  as for as using a VA  P.A.-C (Physician Assist- Certified) But under the supervision of a VA  MD...As opinion.

I may just take the chance...if denied for this reason? I'll send in the  (NOD) I'll use an IMO, From a Board Certified Specialist.

But I sure hope I don't need too, those specialist are getting expensive and far and in between...its getting now they only take insurance and not recieve cash payment...so that makes it harder for a veteran that don't have an extra Insurance private policy.

which I don't have. VAMC is my only Healthcare at present.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
