  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

How do you complain about QTC C&P exam administration?

Question

QTC makes you use (multiple) 15 to 30 minute queue tell-you-nothing telephone calls for everything. They want to schedule you in 3 work days and make you use a screwed up system that takes 3 days of telephone calls to figure out with boot-strapped complicated passwords that never work unless you have 2 man months lead time (ymmv.) Then they send you mail that takes 2 weeks which you may or may not receive just in time.

Then the result is a student who often just graduates 1) Psychology or 2) Psychiatry. My Psychology graduate did not do ANYTHING correct in my Anxiety C&P except commit fraud. I have an IMO in for about a year now. I have a tbi C&P coming up with a Psychiatrist soon. What in the hell does a Psychiatrist know about biomechanical organic tbi functioning? From my experience, they know big words, how to do use obsolete meaningless subjective tests that don't confidently indicate anything, and reject claims based totally on subjective reasons. I've heard of a couple of good experiences here with Psychiatrists, but I'd bet they were not QTC Psychiatrists (but I really hope I am wrong.)

I've got 2 weeks to cram for the exam (and the material is endless but all correlated), based on tbi facts, experiences, and known issues. All that means absolutely nothing to a superior in their own mind, Psychiatrist. Even a Physiatrist is a Rehab doctor and may not be the most applicable MD as compared to a Neurologist or a Neuro-surgeon. The whole Psychiatrist is qualified for tbi seems to be aimed towards the QTC cheap and inadequate C&P exam budgeting and unjust rating refusals. If someone can help guide me, please do so. QTC is woefully incompetent as evidence from 2 times before, and another SS Psychiatrist appointment grouped in assumptions for a greater power of testing. Everything leans that way, with no way to give QTC feedback. This is like a no-lose corrupt system like Dick Cheney would devise for Halliburton oil rig bidding, in between shooting politicians on TX duck hunts.

I just found out from a Psychiatrist author that they do in fact know about the brain. That is good, hopefully. The only alternatives are the least desirable (QTC and Psychiatrist), but that's all there is. What a challenge for a tbi pt!

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
