  • 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

BVA Awaiting Place on the Docket

Question

Greetings

I just checked eBenefits on the status of my BVA claims and it said, "Awaiting Place on the Docket."  Does this mean that the DAV has reviewed and written statements to support my Remanded Claims (Docket 11-12-911)?

Best Regards

You mean a 646 form? Possibly....

Are you on Remand and is this your BVA case?

If so did the VA follow all that the remand called for and were the C & P exams favorable?

Greetings

This is my remanded case and no additional C&P examines have been requested.  Ebenefits show that by case is now in line to be reviewed by a BVA Judge. I'm I reading this correctly or not?

That is a long remand, I honed in on one part of it...others hopefully will chime in on the other disabilities:

"Regarding the stroke and seizure disability, the Board notes that although the June 2011 and August 2013 examiners provided opinions and rationales regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability was due to his hepatitis C, they provided no opinions regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability was aggravated by his hepatitis C, nor did they provide opinions regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability was due to or aggravated by his diabetes mellitus type II.  38 C.F.R. § 3.310; Allen, 7 Vet. App. 439.  Therefore, the claims file should be returned to the August 2013 examiner, if available, in order to obtain an opinion regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability has been aggravated (permanently worsened beyond normal progress of the disorder) by his service-connected hepatitis C, or whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability is due to or aggravated (permanently worsened beyond normal progress of the disorder) by his service-connected diabetes mellitus type II.  See McLendon v. Nicholson, 20 Vet. App. 79 (2006)."              

I can assure you that the stroke was probably 'more than likely" due to your DMII.

DMII can cause cholestrol problems to the extent that the arteries become clogged with plaque and then can form clots and can go to the brain ( TIAs and then irreversible brain disease- meaning stroke.)

One of my claims was about that connection.They awarded 100% P & T under 1151 however, so I did not have to prove the DMII caused the stroke. But,if they get a favorable OGC opinion on my pending claim, I will file a new claim for direct SC for the stroke.

Whether the Hep C or even the DMII ( the BVA fully knows what I know about DMII and gave you a clue here as they gave me once long ago in a decision) I hope you have considered getting an IMO/IME to combat what might again be, a C & P exam that will not help you at all.

When vets are on remand, they have plenty of time to follow the remand themselves and get additional evidence.Strokes happen for many reasons...... but DMII can be a main factor for stroke,IHD, HBP , etc etc and I know that there are very few awards at the BVA for SC strokes....because the vets did not have a real doctor opine on their medical records.

(by real doctor-I mean a Neurologist not some PA or nurse)

Greetings Berta

Thank you calmly for looking into this and your sound advice on how to move ahead with this case.  My head is pounding (tension headache) and I'm taking a ton of meds for everything under the sun.  I kinda get lost at times trying to understand and pursue my BVA and NOD cases but I intend to hold on as long as I can to be successful.  Again, thank you and everyone who have taken time to assist me.  Have a great day.

 

Best Regards

Chiefhouse

    • 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.

      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
