  • 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.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
