Tell the truth...

Question

I'm tired of reading on these forums people telling other what not to say, what to say, ect. Be 100% honest with the VA and you will get what you deserve in the end.

is there a rating schedule for PTSD available? Reason I ask, is I wish I knew more about all of these topics when I was checking out of the military.  I had no idea what the result was when I was talking to the base VA doctor, and didn't understand PTSD and its effects.  I simply accepted my %10 for PTSD and moved on.  Knowing what I know now and after several conversation with folks, I have been getting shorted for over a decade now, based on the severity of my situation.  Is there more information on how to appeal the decision that far back, or ask for an increase, how they grade increases, etc?

PTSD has a different set of C&P exam questions, but in the end it is based on the mental health rating criteria. The VA will rate on mental health based on social and occupational deficiency/severity, not the total # of of diagnosed disorders.

Here are all the rating tables: http://www.benefits.va.gov/warms/bookc.asp

If you are currently SC for a MH issue and you think it worsened, you can consider requesting an increase. Before you do that, take a look at your progress notes from your provider for the last 12 calendar months and compare that to the rating criteria. For example, if you got 10% now, look at the criteria for 30% and compare that to your treatment records. For increases, the VA can increase based on what is in your treatment records from the past 12 calendar months. Otherwise, it might require a CUE, which is a tough fight.

Good luck!

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
