Question

Hello everyone.. I have a comp and pen for PTSD in 2 weeks.. I have verified diagnoses from an LPC and 2 phyc PH.D.  Already took the MMPI2 it also confirmed diagnoses from what my Dr said. The question I have is why would the VA need another diagnoses from a VA phyc? This is strange to me.. Any advice would be great thanks

Because of the 2010 PTSD regulations, all claims filed  after July 2010 for PTSD require that a VA MH professional diagnose the veteran with PTSD.

If you have the PH, CIB, or the CAR on your DD 214 they VA will possibly concede the stressor you have.

It pays to make sure you can prove the stressor, even with any of those citations.

These regulations were to help OIF -OEF incountry veterans but also can help combat vets of any war...and they apply to non combat veterans as well ,if the JSRRC can verify their stressor.

You should go see your VAMC MH Dept   (ASAP)

Take your private Medical Records ..& tell the clerk you need to see a LCSW about your PTSD, He/She will do a PTSD Evaulation and you will see a Phd Dr  or Phyisitrist.

It may not work out like this  beings you don't have an appointment but you need to tell the clerk you need to see someone right away b/c of your PTSD  try to get in the clinic and show them your private records .....it maybe to late for this  if you only have 2 weeks before your PTSD C&P.

But you do need a diagnose of DSM5 PTSD from the VA.

If you can't get in to see them and they give you an appointment time, you have 2 choices...either try to get more time  for your C&P or go ahead and go to this one with your private PTSD Diagnose's , if your denied  then NOD the decision and get to that VA MH Appointment.

Quick Question,

 

Can i get a PTSD diagnosis from a non VA Doctor and if i do, is it accepted? I here a lot that is referenced that a VET see's a VA psyc if you have ptsd. Let me know your thoughts, reason being is, i have a issue with a Neuro Psych that i had seen that totally treated me bad in front of my VA HudVash Social worker who drove me to the appointment and was there for support. I am avoiding going to this Dr. who appears to be the only specialist in the local VAMC. I did see an outside Doc but it was via Choice program and they just did a quick assessment. I also visited a Neuro specialist via choice program who is not a neuro pscy but wrote that i needed CBT for PTSD.. .. Choice program is so mismanaged by the way.. you ask for PTSD help and get a Neurologist instead of Nuero Psyc specialist.. then back through VA... Then Choice program if you are an unfortunate one.

Due to the 2010 PTSD regulations (which all veterans, all vet reps, and all vet attorneys and  any concerned citizens had ample time to respond to  this proposed regulation  that I gave the link to here 6 years ago)

....the VA Requires a VA MH diagnosis from a VA MH professional, for all PTSD claims filed after that date, July 16, 2010

They will not accept any PTSD diagnosis from a Non VA shrink.

The Federal Register only had 600-800 responses, and only a few of us here tried to fight the MH criteria,which has made it easier by far for OEF vetereans but  very difficult for many non OEF vets.

However a veteran can also claim acquired psychiatric disorder,mood disorder, or anxiety,whether or not  they have a non VA diagnosis of any of these conditions and will get a C & P exam.

The VA will still need ample proof of the inservice nexus or cause of the disorder.

    • 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.
