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 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:
