  • 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

100% P&T I can't get an appointment or treatment.

Recommended Posts

I have been 100% P&T since last year. As soon my rating was increased  the VA clinic I go to was unable to give me appointments or treatment. I never have had this problem this bad in over 20 years going to VA to be seen on a regular basis. I have service connected injuries of 12 different injuries. My VA doctor tells me there is nothing he can do to help me. My nurse doesn't want to answer my secure messages any more. I am 4 months away from the 20 year rule on half of my service connected injuries. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions, advice would be appreciated. Thanks and God Bless all of you veterans!

You go to a VA Clinic, not a VMC, right? Is your PCP the Director of the VA Clinic? Might be time for youto "Request Mast." Every body in the VA has a Boss. Who is your PCP's Boss, that's who you need to Secure Msg.

Do all of your MHV Secure Msg's show up in your MHV Med Record?

If you went to a VMC for Med Care, I'd tell you to check with the Vets Learning Center Head Guy/Woman, and request that the Director of your VA Clinic be added to your Secure Msg contact list.   Remember, "The Squeaky Wheel, gets the Grease!" Time for you to start Squeaking, for a Big Dawg, right.

Send your VA Patient Advocate, a MHV Secure Msg, should appear at or near the bottom of your MHV New Msg List of contacts.

Thanks! I have finally this morning received a secure message from a nurse who says she is going to call me to discuss this.

When I hit 100% p&t and made an appointment to see a doctor at the VA about a yearly checkup they acted confused to why I wanted to be seen. The VA acts like you're magically cured or can't be helped when you hit 100%; that's how it seems to me.

    • 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
